Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PC4HS) is a supporter of the Cleaning Industry Management Standard or CIMS

By PC4HS Staff

Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PC4HS) is a supporter of the Cleaning Industry Management Standard or CIMS (CIMS is patterned somewhat after ISO with an emphasis on commercial cleaning). Both the president and vice president of PC4HS, Rex Morrison and Bill Blumenthal respectively are CIMS ISSA Certification Experts (ICE) ready to provide training and consulting services to cleaning organizations interested in complying with and preparing to be certified to the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS). Why is this important?

 

Consultant Bill Griffin quoted by ISSA and the Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) perhaps says it best: “One of the things I like most about the program is the fact that it offers a comprehensive management and operations structure, focusing on six best practices principles that form the foundation of success and business improvement, including:

  • 1. Quality Systems
  • 2. Service Delivery
  • 3. Human Resources
  • 4. Health, Safety and Environmental Stewardship
  • 5. Management Commitment
  • 6. Green/Sustainable Building Cleaning Practices (GB)”

 

According to PC4HS Founder and President Rex Morrison: “I have always believed that CIMS in school operations is important. Coming from a school district that was ISO certified convinced me that ISO-related programs make it far harder for schools to stray from the quality path. I am a strong supporter of the CIMS concept and believe it can give our program that extra edge of excellence.”

 

Why PC4HS supports CIMS, ISO and Continuous Improvement

 

In a word, it’s all about “Quality”...

 

The Washoe County School District (WCSD) (100 schools) in Reno NV was the first adopter of Process Cleaning for Healthy Schools (PC4HS), and it’s no coincidence that WCSD was also one of the few districts to become compliant with ISO 9001 via emphasis on continuous improvement and successfully deploying better cleaning methods.
