Cleaning Leaders: Keeping Employees Health in Mind
Cleaning for health needs to start with making sure the people we manage have a healthy and safe environment. We need to focus on the types of products we are using but all the PPE provided, the ergonomics of equipment, the policies and procedures set up, and the overall self-care of our employees.
A leader is someone who, whether by choice or by necessity, can give themselves entirely to their community. As leaders, we owe it to our crews and colleagues, but most importantly, to ourselves to keep healthy and strong. Everyone's quoting Dr. Berry these days, so I'll share one of my favorite things about health. "Health is a state of complete mental, physical, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." We clean. We clean for health. Remember that cleaning for health is for you, too.
Operationalizing Cleaning for Health

The Ashkin Group LLC.
Cleaning for health (as opposed to cleaning for appearances) has been a discussion point for over 30 years. But far too often, cleaning for health was little more than a marketing slogan. Today however with new technologies and lessons learned from COVID and programs like the LEED Rating System, we can now operationalize cleaning for health and objectively measure and demonstrate improvements beyond cleaning for appearances.
- Differentiating Cleaning for Health from Cleaning for Appearances.
- The new LEED protocol to measure surface contamination that provides quantitative, reliable, repeatable and reportable results and the appropriate corrective actions to protect occupant health.
- Overcoming some of the basic challenges when moving towards Cleaning for Health.

But as people start to come back into buildings, how can they gain confidence in that cleanliness? And as staff turns over, how can you ensure consistency in your cleaning standards? How you communicate cleanliness both internally and externally can be almost as important as what you are doing to create clean and healthy environments.
