NSF International and the Healthy House Institute (HHI) have joined forces to help educate consumers on a variety of home health and safety topics. NSF, a public health and safety organization, will provide content for the HHI website on food safety, hand washing, nutritional supplements, green living, and proper cleaning and maintenance of home appliance products.
“We believe this partnership between NSF International and the Healthy House Institute will help consumers worldwide live healthier, initially by teaching them about how to improve their health and safety behavior in the home,” said Allen Rathey, HHI president. “Consumers have become much more safety minded. Not only are they concerned about home safety, but they also seek out products that have been tested and certified against safety and quality standards by an independent organization. NSF International is the perfect partner to provide content for HHI, as they provide public health and safety services and test and certify a wide range of products, including nutritional supplements and home appliances.”
NSF International will initially provide web content regarding safe food handling and preparation in the home. Future topics will focus on proper hand washing, green living, nutritional supplement safety and proper cleaning and maintenance of home appliances.
“We look forward to working with the Healthy House Institute to help further educate consumers about how they can protect their family’s health,” said Robert Donofrio, director of NSF International’s Applied Research Center. “Together, we can provide consumers with the information they need to make educated decisions about the products they purchase for better health.”
