Cummins Facility Services Recertifies to CIMS-GB With Honors
Accessible by: anyone
Cummins Facility Services (CFS) has successfully completed recertification to the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB) criteria with Honors.
Compliance with the standard shows that a cleaning organization has the systems in place to deliver consistent, professional services designed to meet customer needs and expectations and is prepared to deliver a comprehensive green cleaning program based on LEED EB: O&M green cleaning criteria. CIMS and CIMS-GB certification are required in many cleaning service bid specifications as customers look for an effective way to identify high-quality providers committed to customer satisfaction.
“We hold ourselves to the highest standards,” says Jill Frey, CEO and president of CFS. “Earning our CIMS-GB certification with honors shows our customers that we go beyond the standards of the business to be the best in facilities management.”
Independent, accredited assessors verify CIMS and CIMS-GB with honors certified firms meet the industry standard for:
- Quality systems
- Service delivery
- Human resources
- Health, safety, and environmental stewardship
- Management commitment
- Green building.
Recently, CIMS-GB became a direct compliance option to meet the green cleaning policy prerequisite of Version 4 of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) revised Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED EB: O&M) rating system.
“CIMS-GB certified organizations are subject to a rigorous third-party assessment, which provides end customers with assurance that their cleaning service provider is committed to effective management and customer satisfaction and is prepared to partner with them in the LEED certification process, ” says Chris Osborne, COO of CFS.
