January 20, 2009

Health & Safety

Deb Canada today announced the launch of a new eLearning initiative starting with its Infection Control in the Workplace Program. Available at no cost across Canada through its web site, this on-demand and interactive series was developed to help educate the importance of effective hand hygiene practices in all workplace environments.

We developed the eLearning initiative in direct response for web-based, on-demand educational tools. Our customers wanted an interactive format that could be easily viewed and shared in an effort to increase hand hygiene compliance. Our Infection Control in the Workplace segment as an example covers key topics including workplace statistics on germs and bacteria, the true cost of absenteeism and presenteeism and best practice for implementing a hand hygiene compliance program, commented Patrick Boshell, Marketing Manager, Deb Canada.

Additional topics to follow in Debs eLearning series include natural skin care for industry, point-of-care hand hygiene for healthcare and skin care programs for food manufacturing and processing. Each presentation also includes a number of additional educational resources for download such as posters, signs, staff handouts and program literature, continues Boshell.
