Guidance for Businesses

Use safer disinfectants in your business.

In 2020 TURI Lab cleaning and disinfecting experts hosted a webinar on how businesses can adhere to the Massachusetts COVID-19 reopening guidelines while protecting the health of employees and consumers. See the link to the webinar and presentations on the right.

We are consistently developing new materials related to safer cleaning and disinfecting, including a new fact sheet titled Safer Cleaning and Disinfecting: Information for Manufactures and Other Businesses.

TURI has developed a sample Cleaning and Disinfecting Log and Checklist for businesses to tailor to their particular needs.

New Research on Safer Alternatives

Read more about how the TURI Lab evaluates the effectiveness of safer alternatives, in collaboration with Assoc. Prof. Nancy Goodyear of the Biomedical and Nutritional Sciences Department at UMass Lowell.

“We are very interested in studying whether these other methods do kill the coronavirus. If these products work, then consumers and businesses would have more options to consider that may be safer than using the pesticide-based products.”
