BOISE, ID — The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) has announced its support of the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (GB) program, according to a press release.
CIMS and CIMS-GB also serve as an effective prequalification and development tool for facility management in selecting contract services or structuring in-house offerings to ensure an effective platform for creating high-quality outcomes and healthier buildings, the release stated.
"CIMS'' focus on a systems model to improving cleaning and especially the health of the indoor environment is crucial," said Allen Rathey, president of HFI.
"The fourth of the five pillars of CIMS — health, safety and environmental stewardship — placed in the context of an overall management system or platform is the only approach that will work to improve facility environments in a sustainable way," Rathey added.
