GOJO® has conducted multiple outcome studies to scientifically prove that a program including GOJO® hand soaps, PURELL® hand rub and state-of-the-art dispensing will reduce illness and absenteeism across a wide range of real world settings.

"Washing your hands correctly (or using an alcohol based hand rub) is the most effective thing you can do to protect yourself against a number of infectious diseases, such as influenza (the "flu") and the common cold. Not only will it help keep you healthy, it will help prevent the spread of infectious diseases to others."
