15:30-15:55 The Power of GBAC STAR: Are you Cleaning for Health?
Cleaning for appearance is no longer sufficient. The public now understands that a surface can look and smell clean but still harbor infectious disease-causing germs. Facilities must adopt a “cleaning for health” approach to restore confidence, uphold brand reputation, and minimize the spread of infectious diseases by maintaining a safe and healthy indoor space. Real-world case studies from American Airlines, JFK International Airport, Hyatt Hotels, NBA and NFL professional teams will be presented with solutions that are sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective.

Speaker: Dr. Gavin Macgregor-Skinner,

Senior Director, Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), A Division of ISSA, Associate Professor, Penn State College of Medicine
