Did You Know?
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, children’s backpacks should weigh no more than 15% of their body weight. Between homework, reading books, and extra studying, that’s not always the case.
That’s why UL partnered with The Walt Disney Company to create Safety Smart to educate children on safety. Safety Smart is a global educational program designed to improve children's awareness and understanding of safety, health and environmental issues with the intention of impacting their behavior. UL’s promise is safety, and now it applies to children too.

Stay Safe & Healthy! Proper hand-washing
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend the following steps for hand-washing:
1. Wash your hands with running water and soap.
2. Rub your hands together for at least 20 seconds.
3. Pay special attention to your wrists, the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your fingernails.
4. Leave the water running while you dry your hands on a paper towel.
5. Use the paper towel as a barrier between the faucet and your clean hands when you turn off the water.
If soap and water are not available, use gel hand sanitizers or alcohol-based hand wipes containing 60% to 90% ethyl alcohol or isopropanol. Most supermarkets and drugstores carry these products. Carry one or both with you when you travel, and keep them in your car or purse.
If using the gel sanitizer, rub your hands until the gel is dry. You don't need to use water. The alcohol in the gel kills the germs on your hands.
