In any workplace’s war against infection, whether it is a school, office, or hospital setting, the enemy is aggressive, and ever-changing. As viruses like RSV, C. diff, and MRSA become more resistant, the proper cleaning tools and procedures are vitally important to eradicating outbreaks. Equally important is educating employees on their need to follow specific cleaning protocols to break the chain of infection. If not, germs spread, bacteria mutate, and building occupants contribute to the problem with poor hygiene habits. The need to develop a battle plan — and recruit customers, end users and occupants to join the fight — is stronger than ever.

This webcast will provide an in-depth understanding of universal practices and methods of combating the spread of infection in a variety of settings. The result: a healthier working environment for building occupants, increased morale, reduced absenteeism and greater productivity. The webcast will detail:

  • Learn about considerations specific to various types of facilities: schools, health care, hospitality, offices, etc.
  • Identify best practices in regards to certain cleaning methods
  • Analyze cleaning and disinfecting common touch-points, such as door knobs, keyboards, light switches, hand rails, etc.
  • Recognize ways to provide a clean and safe work environment for patients, students, and building occupants
