The International Executive Housekeepers Association (IEHA), a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, and the Ontario Healthcare Housekeeping Association (OHHA) have announced their partnership with ISSA Show Canada, being held June 11-13, 2019, at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre at 255 Front St. W. in downtown Toronto, Canada. The trade show will be held in tandem with the REMI Show whose delegates include building owners and managers.
“In our ongoing effort to unite the industry and tap into all of our educational resources, we are so pleased to have IEHA and OHHA collaborate with ISSA Show Canada,” said ISSA Canada Executive Director Mike Nosko. “Both IEHA and OHHA bring industry-leading expertise to assist with ISSA’s mission of changing the way the world views cleaning. The top-notch educational programming that they will provide is sure to help further professionalize our front-line workers and instill the confidence they need in order to keep our facilities healthy and sustainable.”
With sustainability being a trending issue among all industry sectors, IEHA is pleased to present a session on Healthcare Sustainability. This in-depth session will focus on the facts about sustainability as a planetary and business imperative, as well as providing practical tools to make sustainability goals achievable.
As healthcare cleaning professionals, front-line staff are mandated to clean and disinfect multiple areas to ensure the environment appears clean. However, appearances may be deceiving.

In the Healthcare Infection Control session, that disconnect will be addressed and broken down. From working together to identify high-touch areas that require more frequent cleaning to outlining practices and protocols that will help reduce the risk for healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs), this session will look at proven infection control procedures, as well as the superbugs that may become problematic if teams don’t work together to utilize strategies that work.
