No longer languishing beneath the radar, the awareness of cleaning for health and green cleaning has come to light, thanks in part to an increasing concern for the environments in which we live. Nowhere is that concern more justified than in schools, where children and staff spend much of their days. Clean and safe indoor educational environments have become especially important to many groups, including health advocates, educators, parents and service providers. And green cleaning and cleaning for health are crucial elements of a healthy school, with the number of states requiring green cleaning procedures in schools growing.
In this Webcast, featuring Vince Fagan, LEED Green Associate and owner of Fagan Consulting, and moderated by Nick Bragg, deputy editor of Sanitary Maintenance magazine, you will learn the need for custodial managers and building service contractors to understand – and ramp up – their role in creating and safeguarding a healthy school environment and establishing a truly green approach in the process.
The Webcast will address:
* Cleaning's impact on student/faculty attendance and wellness
* The role of indoor air quality –including filtration and the frequency of cleaning
* Green legislation affecting schools
* The need for hand washing programs and signage in schools
* The impact of LEED on cleaning protocols
* Identifying and addressing hot touch points such as teacher and student desks, water fountain, door handles, etc.
* The impact of H1N1 (Swine Flu) on cleaning protocols in schools
