June <I>CMM</I>: Dry, Healthy Hands Safeguard The Entire Facility
July 6, 2009
The June issue of Cleaning & Maintenance Management® magazine is now available online, featuring Senior Editor Richard DiPaolo''s Facility Focus article on how dry, healthy hands safeguard the entire facility.
DiPaolo stated that recent news of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA), vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), Clostridium difficile (C. diff) and H1N1 influenza (swine flu) call for proactive cleaning answers and strict infection control procedures.
He noted that touch-free technology is taking alcohol-based hand sanitizers as well as restroom dispensers — and dispensers in general — to the next level of hygiene.
DiPaolo added that not only should facility managers and cleaning professionals be sure to provide adequate supplies and touch-free technology, but to further encourage hand-washing and drying, offer premium products.
According to DiPaolo, from manufacturer to distributor to end user to building occupant, a team effort is required to help keep your facility out of the news through frequent, effective hand-washing.
