To prevent cold, flu and other illnesses, promoting surface disinfection and good hand hygiene is essential. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, worker illness and injury can cost U.S. employers upwards of $225.8 billion each year. To help control these costs and protect employees, Lodging Magazine recommends giving staff ready access to convenient, portable hand sanitizing options. Germs transmitted from hands to surfaces can also infect employees and guests, resulting in negative reviews and brand image damage.3
