One week ago today, a newborn daughter lost her father.
One week ago today, a newlywed wife lost her husband.
One week ago today, a man lost his life.
All of this happened because of cleaning chemicals. Yes, it was an accident, but it was a preventable one. Two chemicals, an acid used for descaling dishwashers was spilled on the floor and not cleaned up. The floor was then mopped with a chlorinated product. You might think this doesn’t happen often, but in 2017 it did over 2200 times.
The two mixed together and a deadly gas was created. 13 people went to the hospital and one never left.
You can read more about what happened last week here and learn what not to do.
The Academy has many classes throughout the year, and in all of them, we focus on the safety of the frontline worker. Please consider attending a professional development course and help keep accidents like this from happening.

Mike Seebeck with Earthlabs/HDOX and Dave with the Academy of Cleaning Excellence were both in the GEM Supply booth at the FSPMA conference this week in Orlando, FL. The two guys talk to distributors around the country as to the benefits of professional development and partnering with operations such as GEM Supply.
The Rock Star series of motivational sessions was on Mikes’s mind as he attended a couple of sessions and then applied the thought processes while on the show floor.
