Healthy Building Environments Require Training

Press Release

(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) June 15, 2011 - The field of employment that applies to custodial maintenance, janitorial services, or environmental health services has long been without a certified training program.  Now that GREEN has come along and focused our attention on the health impact of cleaning, more and more conversation depends upon applying Green practices.  This will cause more companies to ask the question, “what are the best Green practices, and how can they be applied to custodial services?”

More than a decade of Green rhetoric and token efforts is no longer good enough. More and more companies are asking, “Are you Green certified?” (And they don’t mean did you buy a Green logo off the Internet). By the way, no one should accept flimsy un-audited certifications anyway.
