Dangerous chemical cleaners require training for safe use. Effective 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 and unsafe 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 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.
PathoSans green cleaning multi-surface cleaner and disinfectant save labor in a couple critical ways. First, it significantly reduces training time, because the system and solutions are safer, easy, and intuitive to use. Second, the PathoSans system reduces time spent waiting for chemicals to dwell. Five minutes here and five minutes there several times a day adds up to a significant savings by the end of year. PathoSans also reduces the risk of ineffective cleaning from not adhering to the proper dwell time. With an industry that experiences high levels of employee and customer turnover, the labor savings from PathoSans can be a game changer for commercial cleaning operations.
