STURTEVANT, Wis. – Nov. 24, 2009 – JohnsonDiversey today launched www.outbreakcontrol.com, a one-stop resource for managing infection risk in schools, health settings and other commercial spaces. Developed for JohnsonDiversey’s customers, distributors and the general public, the Web site provides comprehensive information regarding infectious diseases as well as best practices to manage outbreaks, reduce risk and minimize the spread of infection.

“The global H1N1 pandemic has raised social and individual consciousness on the importance of visibly maintaining healthy, hygienic public environments,” said JohnsonDiversey President and CEO Ed Lonergan. “Our understanding of disease, infection and cleaning and hygiene practices needed to minimize their spread makes us uniquely qualified to provide a platform for public awareness and education.”

In addition to prevention tips and disinfection and cleaning procedures, www.outbreakcontrol.com features an interactive, “Ask an Expert” question and answer forum, where visitors can have their questions answered by Drs. Dale Grinstead and Jose Ramirez, JohnsonDiversey’s infection control experts.

The site will also host topic-specific, expert videos to demonstrate the essential elements of infection control. The site is developed in English, but also provides linkage to JohnsonDiversey’s infection control information in 14 languages.

Additionally, JohnsonDiversey’s infection control team will regularly post the most up-to-date public health information from the Centers for Disease Control and Infection (CDC), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the World Health Organization (WHO). This will enable visitors to find all updated public health content instantaneously and in one location.

“Outbreakcontrol.com is a 24/7 resource for people seeking the latest facts regarding infection control,” said Dr. Ramirez, Vice President of Global Research and Development. “Until now, it has been difficult to sift through the myriad of information sources to obtain relevant facts for infection control. This Web site provides the proper education and product usage information that are vitally important to maintaining a safe, clean and hygienic facility.”
