Des Plaines, Ill.-based Chicago Faucets accepted an invitation from The Handwashing Leadership Forum, an alliance of advocates based on their demonstrated commitment to lowering the risks of nosocomial and foodborne illnesses.

“This is an important initiative for Chicago Faucets," said Richard Nortier, Chicago Faucets’ director of marketing, “and accepting it emphasizes a philosophy at the core of our company: the safe delivery of water.”

Jim Mann, executive director for the Handwashing For Life Institute, the organization behind The Handwashing Leadership Forum, noted members agree that by thinking and working together they can replace risk with integrated solutions.

“Our intent is to fill the gaps in the science of hand hygiene and the cleanliness of high-touch surfaces,” Mann says. “Chicago Faucets earned the invitation by a combination of innovation and customer satisfaction. We are honored to have them with us.”
