As consumers continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, their concern about store safety and cleanliness will be a determining factor in their decision to visit certain locations. A recent report from management consultants at McKinsey & Company stated that store cleanliness is the second most important driver for shoppers switching from their primary store. As grocery stores continue operations in this “new normal” brought on by the pandemic the importance for demonstrating your commitment to cleaning and safety has never been higher. Are you confident in your disinfection protocols? Is your staff comfortable with their cleaning approach? And are your customers convinced that your store building is safe?
Join speakers from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association as they give an overview of the new, comprehensive training and certification program to grocery retailers, the GBAC STAR. The GBAC STAR is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation for facilities.
GBAC STAR is the gold standard of prepared facilities. This accreditation means that a facility has:
-Established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
-The proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices in place to combat biohazards and infectious disease.
– Highly skilled cleaning professionals who are trained for outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response.
This webinar, held Thursday, June 25 at at 2pm ET, will provide an overview of the GBAC STAR program, how you can earn its accreditation and the special discounts offered only through NGA.
