Cleaning services are not usually viewed as a skilled profession. However, in any organization, presision cleaning is one of the most important functions to keep the facility safe.
Proper training and monitoring of cleaning practices are SOP (standard operating procedure) and require an understanding of the areas in which potential pathogens may be found within any given environment. Instructional materials that emphasize the importance of hotspots can improve engagement and motivation for optimal learning and subsequent performance.
While the protocols and technologies can be readily taught in a classroom setting, compliance relies on the integrity and commitment of the individual, especially when working alone or unsupervised.
In addition, basic classroom teaching is often dry and difficult for those not accustomed to such formal instruction. However, visual training in which contamination can be seen in a layout of the environment can allow for the administration of a ‘walk-about’ training and monitoring process such that newly-hired or existing staff are familiar with all aspects of the facility and the risks for contamination and spread.
The cleaning staff are required to provide optimal service in a thorough and consistent manner while using defined cleaning and disinfection protocols. The success of such functions depends largely on the way cleaning is performed (the protocol), the diligence with which it is performed (necessary compliance) and the nature and means of application of the product(s) used for cleaning and disinfection (the technology).
The OptiSolve Pathfinder® provides organizations the ability to provide optimal training that can be used for all seniority levels as well as for all levels of staff. Each individual will have:
- an understanding of why particular tasks are necessary
- specific directives of what is to be done where in your facility and why,
- the potential for engagement by highlighting potential gaps in process as well as suggestions to improve overall cleaning effectiveness.
Moreover, the organization itself will have the opportunity to have a record of any hotspots in real time such that changes to the infrastructure can be identified and assessed for necessary alterations to cleaning programs to ensure effectiveness. This will lead to reduced chances for infection and an increase in productivity in a cost-effective and respectful manner.
