Sunshine Cleaning Systems Leaders Earn Biorisk Certification

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – The LEED certification has become the gold standard for green buildings, now the GBAC STAR™ Accreditation is growing as the seal of approval for facilities following strict cleaning and disinfection procedures for handling infectious disease outbreaks.  Created by the worldwide cleaning industry association (ISSA), the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) offers training certifications to cleaning professionals as well as an accreditation for facilities (www.gbac.org). 

Members of Fort Lauderdale-based Sunshine Cleaning Systems’ top management team have completed the rigorous GBAC fundamentals course. The training now allows them to assist facilities in securing the GBAC STAR™ Accreditation, a program that establishes specific guidelines to assist facilities in their cleaning, disinfecting and infectious disease prevention protocols.

“We have fully embraced the GBAC fundamentals and are in the process of requiring all managers in the operations, sales, quality control and assurance departments to complete the course,” said Mike Woodson, Director of Sales, Quality Control and Assurance at Sunshine Cleaning, who added that the company COO Randy Kierce as well as department heads and frontline managers have already completed the training.  “The COVID-19 crisis has moved our entire industry to create consistent and accepted procedures to more effectively control risks associated with infectious agents.”

The 20-part STAR program includes a facility commitment statement, emergency preparedness and response, facility infection disease prevention practices, a worker health program, and audits and inspections.  According to the GBAC, “in order to minimize or eliminate the risk of the spread and contamination of infectious diseases, the facility needs to address its in-house requirements (staff) as well as the needs of customers, clients and visitors.” 

In addition to infectious disease situations, the GBAC helps organizations and businesses prepare for, respond to, and recover from other biological threats, biohazard situations and real-time crises.
