This time of year workplace absenteeism climbs as cold and flu viruses make the rounds.

What can you do to protect your employees? How about safely sterilizing the air they breathe at work?

Haven’t we all had our hearts sink when we’ve heard a coworker sneeze in the office, or complain about “just a little sore throat?” In today’s competitive business environment, many of us can’t afford the time, energy and money it costs to get sick.  Coupled with the proliferation of dangerous flu strains, strep and other common illnesses, it’s enough to make you feel like wearing a surgical mask to work, if not a shiny space suit!
