Best Sanitizers Helps to Support Work Wellness and Reduce the Spread of Germs in the Work Place

Our goal is to promote work wellness and reduce the spread of germs.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported the flu season is underway for most of the country, meaning the 2019-2020 flu season is officially here! Influenza, also known as the flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness that can cause mild to severe illness. Best Sanitizers, Inc. wants to improve work wellness and give everyone a fighting chance this flu season. According to CDC, practicing everyday preventative measures such as handwashing and surface cleaning can help stop the spread of germs and reduce the risk of people getting sick. Regularly cleaning our hands and the surfaces we touch every day will help fight the spread of illness by reducing the number of germs found in the workplace.

Washing your hands often and correctly is an effective way to help reduce the spread of germs in your workplace. Contaminated hands can transfer germs to surfaces, utensils, office supplies, telephones, door handles and other items commonly touched. Practicing proper handwashing techniques is a good start to reducing germs on the hands. Best Sanitizers recommends these Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for proper hand washing technique: Thoroughly wet hands with clean, running water, apply an adequate amount of soap, rub palms and back of hands, rub thumbs and interlace fingers, rub fingertips into palm of opposite hand and rub wrists. The actual handwashing portion should last 20 seconds to ensure effective cleaning. Rinse well with running water and dry hands thoroughly with a disposable paper towel.

Best Sanitizers recommends washing with a quality hand soap like Alpet® E1 Fragrance-Free Foam Soap. Alpet E1 is a fragrance-free, foaming hand soap that meets Safer Choice Standards, meaning the product’s formula contains ingredients with more positive human health and environmental characteristics than conventional products of the same type. For workers in the food processing and food service industries, a sanitizing soap like Alpet® Q E2 Sanitizing Foam Soap can be beneficial. Alpet Q E2 is an ideal foaming soap for all food processing environments. It’s engineered with a 0.12% Benzalkonium Chloride (BAC) formula, is NSF certified, Kosher, Pareve and Halal certified. Alpet Q E2 is formulated with emollients to keep skin soft and healthy. It is also fragrance and dye free.

Handwashing is a great start to removing pathogens from the hands, but for maximum results, Best Sanitizers recommends sanitizing hands after they’ve been washed. Sanitizing with a quality hand sanitizer, such as Alpet® E3 Plus Hand Sanitizer Spray after handwashing will further reduce germs on the hands. Alpet E3 Plus is dispensed as an atomized spray, which saturates fingernails, cuticles, cracks and crevices of the fingers and hands where pathogens hide. Its 71% Ethanol formula kills 99.9999% of 26 tested pathogens, greatly reducing the number of germs on the hands. Additionally, it has emollients that help keep hands from drying out. It is NSF certified, Kosher, Pareve and Halal certified.

Regularly cleaning surfaces also helps fight the spread of germs and promotes employee wellness in the workplace. Using a surface sanitizer, such as Alpet® D2 and Alpet® D2 Quat-Free Surface Sanitizer to clean and then sanitize door knobs, tables, counter tops, and other high-traffic areas can greatly reduce the spread of germs. Alpet D2 and Alpet D2 Quat-Free both have the fastest kill time recognized by the EPA with 60 second kill claims on food contact surfaces, and 10 second kill claims on non-food contact surfaces. They kill 99.999% of tested pathogens as a food contact surface sanitizer.

In addition, the Alpet® D2 Surface Sanitizing Wiping System is an easy solution to germ reduction on high-traffic areas, such as, door knobs, telephones, computer keyboards, and rest rooms. Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizing Wipes are ready-to-use, alcohol-based wipes that require no rinsing. These strong surface sanitizing wipes come in a self-closing canister that helps reduce the risk of premature drying. Alpet D2 Surface Sanitizing Wipes are available as a 90 count, heavy-duty wipe and a 160 count, medium-duty wipe. Canisters can be placed on any convenient flat surface, or with the optional wall bracket, can be wall-mounted in a central location for quick and convenient access.
