SPONSORS word made with building blocks

The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) and its Indoor Wellness Council (IWC) are pleased to announce Kaivac as the sponsor of the Healthy and Safe Facility Handbook – School and College Edition, the key guidance document for the 2017-2018 Healthy School Recognition Program.

The handbook provides 360-degree information to help school facilities adopt healthier practices and be recognized, and is available as a free download.

“Since ‘clean’ is a metaphor for goals in facility wellness – i.e., clean environments, clean living, and a clean bill of health – it is fitting that a cleaning leader such as Kaivac has stepped up to support this effort,” said Allen Rathey, Director of the Indoor Wellness Council.

The Healthy Facility Award is designed to help schools everywhere become healthier, both physically and fiscally, by showcasing facilities that model healthful, safe indoor environments, along with budget benefits, in areas such as:
• Indoor Air Quality
• Chemical Exposure
• Water Quality
• Listening and Sound Levels
• Lighting
• Cleaning, Disinfecting
• Sanitizing and Foodservice
• Integrated Pest Management
• Ergonomics
• Classrooms
• HVAC and Ceilings
• Furniture
• Restrooms
• Floors
• Stairs
• Drinking Fountains
• Cafeteria, Foodservice
• Locker Rooms
• Security  

Award levels include:
1. Gold Standard of Excellence
2. Silver Standard of Excellence
3. Healthy Facilities Advocate
4. Honorable Mentions

The program will recognize leaders selected from pK-12, higher-education and other institutions that have demonstrated a commitment to better learning environments based on the application of well-established principles of healthy indoor environments as shown in the Healthy and Safe Facility Handbook.
