CloroxPro Teams With ISSA to Launch New Online GBAC Fundamentals Course & Scholarship ProgramJuly 14, 2021
CloroxPro™ announced today a new program—in collaboration with ISSA and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council™, (GBAC), a Division of ISSA—to help schools, businesses, athletics facilities, restaurants, public venues, and other public spaces maintain a cleaner and healthier environment and reinforce visitor confidence as the world is opening up. Cleaning professionals across the nation can gain complimentary access to the GBAC Online Fundamentals Course 2.0, pending eligibility.
This newly updated, self-paced online course teaches cleaning professionals to prepare for, respond to, and recover from biohazards in the workplace. Participants will learn infection and contamination control measures for infectious disease outbreak situations. The course will focus on three key learning objectives:
- Key principles of cleaning and disinfection for infectious diseases in the workplace
- Tools and processes for successful cleaning and disinfection
- Proper procedures for cleaning and disinfection.
Upon completion of the course within 30 days, individuals will receive a Certificate of Completion from GBAC and be able to use the GBAC-Trained Technician designation to promote their expertise.
“As facilities prepare to welcome back occupants and visitors at pre-pandemic levels, schools, businesses, and other public spaces are focused on safeguarding their environments for all who may enter,” said Chris Tucker, CloroxPro vice president and general manager. “Cleaning and disinfecting are a key part of a holistic strategy to help reduce the spread of illness-causing germs, beyond COVID-19. With more GBAC-Trained Technicians supporting facilities of all kinds, we can all more effectively combat today’s and tomorrow’s contamination threats and help uphold public health and safety.”
CloroxPro will donate US$70,000 in GBAC Scholarships, enabling recipients to further their cleaning, disinfection, and infection prevention education.
“We are proud to partner with CloroxPro to continue to support the professional cleaning industry and our members,” said ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “We are thankful for CloroxPro’s commitment to furthering the education of cleaning for health and offering the resources to enhance our members’ operations as more people return to the places where they work, eat, shop, watch sports, and socialize.”
Applications for the program will be available starting Thursday, July 15, 2021, and close on Thursday, September 30, 2021. For more information or to apply for the program, visit www.issa.com/clorox-gbac.
