At K-State, we are struggling with the International Fire Code (IFC) restrictions/limitations for Alcohol Based Hand Sanitizer (ABHS).  We have folks on campus that want to place dispensers everywhere, which we are attempting to control in an effort to comply with fire code.  Out of curiosity, is anyone using both alcohol based AND/OR non-alcohol based hand sanitizer throughout their University?  Or are folks strictly using alcohol based (recommended by CDC) & abiding by the regulations?  Has anyone successfully pursued an exemption from the regulation?   

Any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thank you!

Stay healthy!  Take care -
