It’s Official.  Here is our project for Green Apple Day along with ISSA and The Healthy School Campaign

Clean and healthy schools protect the health of kids and staff, viagra and promote better learning environments.

Training custodians on effective cleaning processes, protecting health and reducing environmental impacts is essential for helping schools meet their educational goals.  Whether it is training new custodial workers, expanding on what they already know, adopting new processes to work more effectively and efficiently, or testing new technologies – the key to success is dependent upon custodians being appropriately trained.  Join us to promote healthy and green training in schools across the country.

First Step

Identify the training your school is providing for custodial employees. Make sure it is based on elements of health and sustainability such as those found in the resources listed below.

How To:

  • Find out what training would be helpful.  It might be orienting new custodial workers; training on new equipment such as the use of floor machines, no-touch restroom cleaning or backpack vacuums; cleaning hard floors, carpets, classrooms or restrooms; new technologies for measuring cleanliness; right-to-know information; using personal protective equipment; etc.
  • Distributors of cleaning products and/or cleaning service providers should schedule and conduct custodial training sessions on identified topics.  Schools should contact their distributors of cleaning products and/or cleaning service providers to ask for their assistance.
  • Ensure that the training sessions are understandable by taking into consideration the custodians skill level, language and other potential cultural barriers of the custodians.
  • Make sure your cleaning program is seen as part of your school’s overall sustainability program by promoting your local training program through your school communication channels including school newsletters, PTA or local school fliers.
