Accredited infection prevention experts

Angela Holley, Daniel Nunn, Chris Degado, Clinton Goodman, Migdalia Martell

Darryl Henry, Director of Facilities for True Health in central Florida signed up his team for the Accredited Infection Prevention Expert course online.

These individuals earned their certificates from the Academy this past December. Below are a few words from these graduates.

“The Academy of Cleaning Excellence truly has educated me and broaden my 2020 vision of applying proper cleaning techniques that will help me in my quest to help save lives. This is my new goal and 2020 vision as a True Health employee to provide true care and concern to anyone in my place of employment. I must admit, that in 27 years of cleaning experience, I have a new outlook and concern about how I clean. That it’s not about making an area of your responsibility to look clean or smell clean, but that true cleaning is about reducing and/or, eliminating those unseen pathogens, germs, and viruses that cause disease or illness.” – Clinton Goodman 

“I am really grateful for the Cleaning Course. It’s always true that even if you know about something, there is still more to learn. I found the course to be complete and very informative. All though I have 38 years of experience, still, I found valuable information.- Daniel Nunn

“The class showed me a lot of things about cleaning and how to clean that I really didn’t know, I enjoyed taking the class and the test. Learning new stuff never hurts, it will help you in the long run.” – Angela Holley 

“This course has opened my eyes to the true meaning of cleanliness.” – Chris Delgado 

“What I liked the most was the reassurance that I was doing the right thing, and didn’t have to leave my work area to take this Training Course. It was Great! – Migdalia Martell

You too can join these new graduates by taking the class online or at a LIVE class at one of our regional campuses. Review class offerings HERE.

SAFETY

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.

You can find a listing of all classes, dates, times and outlines here.
