  • Red — high risk:Would apply to tools, equipment and chemicals used for cleaning toilets, urinals, floors, operating areas, etc.
  • Yellow — moderate to high risk:Would include tools used for cleaning infectious and isolation areas of a hospital as well as door handles and other high-touch areas
  • Green — moderate to low risk:Typically applies to foodservice and other dining areas
  • Blue — low risk:Would include clerical and other areas that pose minimal risks for cross-contamination.
