Virox Technologies Inc., creators of Prevention Disinfectants, announced in a statement the company launched a new complimentary course designed to help nail technicians and other beauty professionals maintain a germ-free workplace. Created by a team of infection prevention experts, this online training provides fundamentals and best sanitation practices to meet state board guidelines and equip users with the latest know-how to combat bacteria, viruses, and fungi as well as emerging pathogens. Upon completion, users can personalize their own certificate and share with clients to demonstrate an elevated commitment to workplace safety.

“Germs can be easily transmitted in a busy nail salon. We created this course to ensure nail technicians and beauty professionals are armed with the most up-to-date education and tools required to germ-proof their service and treatment areas.”

— Dan Woolford, Virox Senior Director of Sales and Marketing

The course is complimentary and takes about 30 minutes to complete from the convenience of a laptop, tablet, or phone. Virox builds upon the success of its previous infection prevention course that featured Rejuvenate Disinfectants and about 26,000 certifications to date. Now with the addition of Prevention disinfectants, nail salon professionals can put their enhanced infection prevention knowledge to work for them in their practice.
