Dangerous chemicals require staff training. Training takes time and money as well as regular re-trainings to ensure the information stays fresh and accurate. When trainings are missed, errors can happen that lead to ineffective cleaning practices.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, “Janitors and building cleaners have a higher rate of injuries and illnesses than the national average. Workers sometime suffer minor cuts, bruises, and burns from machines, tools, and chemicals. As a result, workers are increasingly required to take safety training and ergonomics instruction.”
Not only can building cleaners be injured by improper use of hazardous conventional cleaning chemicals, but they can also fail to disinfect surfaces to healthy standards. Most conventional cleaning chemicals only promise effectiveness when left on the surface for the recommended dwell time, which can be as long as five to 10 minutes. PathoSans solutions are effective in seconds. See time kill studies for more on dwell time.
PathoSans multi-surface cleaner and disinfectant save labor by significantly reducing training time because the system and solutions are easy to use. In addition, using PathoSans solutions can reduce the time spent waiting for chemicals to dwell and boost productivity- without compromising cleaning effectiveness.
