As the recognized authority in health care environmental services, and as a professional membership group of the American Hospital Association, the Association for the Health Care Environment (AHE) has developed two eLearning certificate toolkits in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
AHE has developed and curated a wide portfolio of complementary resources for members and the environmental services community at large in response to COVID-19, and today released the Pathways to Clean certificate toolkit. The Ready. Set. Clean. certificate toolkit was additionally released last month in response to an outpouring of inquiries from the hospitality industry looking for the resources necessary to educate and train their frontline staff to achieve hygienically clean and safe guest spaces that contribute to combating COVID-19, and that reaffirm customer confidence.
The Pathways to Clean certificate toolkit and the Ready. Set. Clean. certificate toolkit both include webinars, presentations and checklists related to COVID-19, infection prevention strategies, cleaning, disinfection, sanitation, emerging pathogens, and preparedness for biological events. Facilities that complete the toolkits’ trainings will earn a certificate of completion and gain access to the AHE Clean Facilities Certificate, Seal, and communications toolkit to make their accomplishment known and affirm their commitment to cleanliness.
This content was made possible in part by generous sponsorships from Kimberly-Clark Professional, Tork, Cintas, and Rubbermaid.
The Pathways to Clean certificate toolkit delivers evidence-based health care caliber cleaning best practices customized for the health care field, and is currently available for purchase.
