The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) and Ecolab Inc., are partnering to present a webinar on the H1N1 flu pandemic and best practices for the hospitality industry. The 90-minute webinar, H1N1: 101, will be held Tuesday, September 29, at 2 pm (EDT).
“No business can stop the H1N1 flu virus from coming through its doors. But knowing more about the symptoms, transmission and steps to prevention can equip owners to prepare with confidence,” said Christophe Beck, executive vice president of Ecolab's North American Institutional Sector. “Our aim is to help hotels plan and act in ways that reduce the risk of flu to their employees and guests – and keep their operations running as flu season progresses.”

McInerney. “We’re delighted Ecolab, which serves many of our members with cleaning and sanitizing products and services, is supporting our efforts to help the industry prevent and prepare for the flu.”
