Industry Members Launch Scholarship For GBAC Education
CloroxPro has announced a new program, in collaboration with ISSA and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), to help food service and hospitality businesses maintain a cleaner environment and reinforce confidence in visiting their facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Food service and hospitality businesses are invited to apply to the program for the chance to be awarded a Clorox Total 360 System and scholarship for the GBAC Fundamentals Online Course: Cleaning & Disinfection Principles.
“Businesses are more committed than ever to making their public and shared spaces safer, and this heightened awareness of health and safety should be a continued focus, even after the pandemic ends,” said Chris Tucker, vice president and general manager of CloroxPro. “Cleaning and disinfecting are a key part of a holistic strategy to help reduce the spread of illness-causing germs, and CloroxPro is proud that through this program, we can help support businesses with tools and education to help maintain a healthier and safer environment.”
CloroxPro will donate up to 1,000 Clorox Total 360 Systems to businesses fitting the application criteria. Priority will be given to small businesses that have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to the device donations, CloroxPro will donate $100,000 in GBAC Scholarships enabling recipients to further their cleaning, disinfection and infection prevention education. The GBAC Fundamentals Online Course teaches fundamentals of cleaning and disinfecting for health as well as prevention, response and control measures for outbreak situations such as SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
“We are proud to partner with CloroxPro to continue to support the professional cleaning industry and our members in a time of need,” said John Barrett, executive director, ISSA. “We are thankful for CloroxPro’s continued support and dedication to further education and offering the tools to enhance our members’ operations amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.”
Applications for the program are open and will close on March 31, 2021. To apply for the program or get more information, visit www.issa.com/clorox-gbac.
