Rex Morrison is president of the nonprofit Process Cleaning for Healthy Facilities (PC4HF). Morrison is formerly the housekeeping training coordinator for the Washoe County School District (WCSD) in Reno, Nevada, one of the few districts in the nation to achieve ISO 9001 certification due to its focus on quality and standardized process. He pioneered Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PCHS) in 100 schools in Washoe County, and more recently developed PC4HF. Morrison is also a Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) ISSA Certification Expert (ICE) ready to provide training and consulting services to cleaning organizations interested in complying with and preparing to be certified to CIMS.
According to ISSA, the goal of the Clean Standard is to provide schools with a useful tool that will help them objectively assess and control the level of cleanliness in their facilities.
Because of the program’s adaptability, we always find a way to train trainers and leave schools much cleaner and healthier than they were before we came.
Flat surfaces often become a magnet for clutter and chaos, leading to an unkempt and potentially unhygienic environment.
Since labor is the number one investment we make in cleaning, we ought to know what we are accomplishing during that time. After all, time is money, and labor is the real currency of cleaning.
When it comes to soils, commercial kitchens and foodservice areas are some of the most challenging environments with which to deal.
