With a demonstrated positive impact on health, productivity, sustainability and asset preservation, cleaning is a crucial piece of the facility management and operations puzzle.

Wednesday, April 29 – 11 a.m.
International Centre, Hall 5, Aviation Room B
Speaker: Mark Heller, MBA , Chair, Environmental Hygiene Interest Group, Infection Prevention & Control - Canada

Whether it is for reasons of cost control, responding to shifting community attitudes, or genuine concern for environmental health, healthcare facilities are becoming more green.

Waste reduction, water conservation and “environmentally responsible” product selection are the new norm. Sometimes, however, the requirements of environmental hygiene are seen to be at odds with sustainability objectives, and balancing sustainability objectives against the core organization mandate for the safest possible patient care can be a challenge.

The purpose of this session is to explore the intersections between environmental hygiene and sustainable practices in waste reduction, green cleaning and water conservation.
