Our effort to keep all at YPSI Alehouse safe

The PHI Package Unit by RGF® is designed to eliminate sick building syndrome risks by reducing odors, air pollutants, VOCs (chemical odors), smoke, mold bacteria and viruses*. Why Use RGF’s Photohydroionization Technology? Germicidal UV light rays have been used for decades by the medical industry as a method for destroying micro-organisms (germs, viruses, bacteria). virus killerUV light is dependable and can be easily installed in HVAC systems. Germicidal UV light is effective in reducing only the airborne micro-organisms that pass directly through the light rays. However, germicidal UV light has little to no effect on gases, vapors or odors. Photohydroionization Advanced Oxidation, which is an active system, on the other hand, is very effective on gases, vapors, VOCs, and odors within the occupied space. Important for the Alehouse employees and guests is that actual lab tests show over 99% reductions of airborne bacteria, mold, odors and viruses. The purchase and installation of this system was made possible with a grant from the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) and the Alehouse thanks that group for their support in helping us install this and other equipment to keep our employees and guest as safe as possible. For more detail on this equipment see our section on Covid.

Ambassador program summary

The Michigan Dept. of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) and Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) launched a new program to support Michigan businesses to reopen safely amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The MIOSHA Ambassador Program offers education and one-on-one guidance to help businesses understand regulations on workplace safety. Ambassadors visit businesses statewide to offer education and support, with a focus on workplaces with a higher risk of community transmission. “Collaboration is key in the effort to stop the spread of COVID-19,” said MIOSHA Director Bart Pickelman. “Throughout the pandemic, we’ve heard from many employers and employees wanting to clarify regulations and determine how they apply to their specific workplace. This ambassador effort will bring that education and support directly to businesses across the state.” The Ypsi Alehouse is a proud participant in this program to improve the safety of our employees and guests.
