Cantel Medical Corp. and National Safety Council Launch Joint Initiative to Prepare Businesses and Individuals for Flu Pandemic

Safety Kits & Educational Programs to be Marketed to Over 50,000 Members


LITTLE FALLS, N.J., March 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CANTEL MEDICAL CORP. (NYSE: CMN) and the National Safety Council ("NSC") announced a joint marketing and distribution agreement to help businesses and other organizations prepare for the threat of a flu pandemic and similar infectious diseases. The World Health Organization continues to track the incidence of avian bird flu throughout the world and warns of the potential of mutation of the H5N1 virus that could result in a widespread human-to-human pandemic.

Under this agreement, Cantel Medical, an established leader in Infection Prevention and Control products to the medical and dental markets, through its Saf-T-Pak and Crosstex business units, will manufacture National Safety Council/Saf-T-Pak co-branded Flu Defense Kits and other product configurations that will include Crosstex face masks, hand sanitizers, gloves and surface disinfecting products. Cantel and National Safety Council will co-market these products, along with providing planning and educational services, to more than 50,000 NSC members that represent a broad spectrum of industries and more than 8.5 million employees.

The National Safety Council supports a mission to educate and influence people in preventing accidental injury and death. They work closely with a range of federal safety and health agencies to provide education and safety products for employers, employees and their families.

According to Donna Siegfried, Executive Director, Emergency Care Programs, National Safety Council, "The National Safety Council sought to complement its 'Prescription for the Flu' educational program with infection prevention and control products that are proven to be effective. We selected Cantel Medical because of its product quality and ability to provide a full range of planning services, customized kitting and global distribution capabilities. Together, we can help employers keep their workers and their workers' families as safe and productive as possible."

According to R. Scott Jones, Cantel Medical's President & CEO, "Cantel is pleased to partner with the National Safety Council. Co-marketing with NSC enables us to further execute on our strategy of bringing our infection prevention and control products to broader alternate markets. More importantly, by partnering with the National Safety Council, we can help businesses and other organizations to keep their employees aware, educated, safe and productive in the face of growing biological threats in the general population."
