Home' Inclean : INCLEAN May-Jun 2018 Contents EDITOR’S LETTER
Just as much as cleaning is critical in a healthcare environment,
so too is hand hygiene. Hand hygiene is a cleaning fundamental,
yet despite all the papers and studies published on hand hygiene
(understood to be a staggering 29,000 in the past 30 years) and
its importance, compliance continues to be an issue.
In this issue, Dr Greg Whiteley argues some of the reasons why
achieving hand hygiene compliance continues to be a complex
challenge on page 26.
In addition, we look at how important it is for cleaners to
understand the difference between cleaning, sanitising and
disinfecting and how poor hygiene can compromise these processes. Broadlex Service’s
Denis Boulais explains this further in his article on page 12.
Another focus for this issue is healthcare. Healthcare cleaning remains one of the most
demanding sectors of the cleaning industry in terms of delivering truly hygienic outcomes.
Healthcare is about effective hygiene practices and now, more than ever, monitoring
hygiene standards, which is directly connected to best practice cleaning methods.
Winc’s Caroline Astrand examines some of the latest innovations helping prevent
healthcare associated infections, while Diversey’s Ivan Obreza explores some new
technologies that are redefining the way we view powerful disinfection chemistry.
Floor cleaning is another area of cleaning to consider in a healthcare setting. Floor
cleaning not only affects the general perception of cleanliness. Failure to clean floors
thoroughly and efficiently can pose a risk to health and also waste resources. Truvox
International’s Gordon McVean outlines the key factors for healthcare facility managers
to consider (page 10).
Also in this issue Bridget Gardner introduces a new, simpler model for specifying and
measuring cleaning standards (page 14) and we speak to former West Coast Eagles
player, David Wirrpanda about his new business Wirrpanda Supplies, created to
manufacture and deliver cleaning supplies as well as close a loop between education and
the employment of Indigenous youth (page 30).
We also have highlights from Karcher’s national Dealer Conference held in Torquay
(page 28) and Adelaide-based Unique Cleaning Supplies shares its plans for national
expansion (page 36).
