Blending both practical hands-on and more theoretical management sessions, AUSCLEAN 2014 will deliver the latest, vital, hygiene intelligence for both contracted service providers and in-house teams.
AUSCLEAN 2014 will be held on 14 October at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Being co-located with the Institute of Hospitality in Healthcare’s (IHHC) annual conference meant it was logical to plan an AUSCLEAN 2014 Education program with a strong hospital and aged care bias.
Interclean Australasia’s managing director Bill Bassett has a wealth of cleaning and hygiene experience, particularly in the healthcare sector. This experience has been extended into his successful Cleaning Hygiene Improvement Process (C.H.I.P.) course, of which AUSCLEAN 2014 attendees can ‘taste test’ if they wish.
Always a popular session, ‘Infection control for cleaning services’, will be delivered by Bug Control’s infection control specialist Sue Elder OAM. Attendees at this practical session will develop their knowledge of the basic principles of infection control; understand the correct use of standard PPE used in infection control; and enjoy improving their hand hygiene techniques using Glow Germ.
Food hygiene issues also take centre stage with HACCP Australia director Martin Stone discussing ‘Food safety in hospitality and cleaning’. In his informative talk he will share insights on bacteria; how they get into food; how they make people sick; and how to stop them in the hospitality industry.
A paper on ‘Management of delivering new cleaning outcomes for aged care and healthcare industries’ will be presented by Ross Mitchell, a consultant with Sebastian Property Services. He will speak about the role of a service contractor working with clients to improve methods of cleaning for hygiene and servicing the aged care and health sectors in a changing environment. With tight budgets and high expectations, how do you deliver a service that meets the expectations of your client at the same time as delivering a commercially palatable margin?
Other AUSCLEAN Education Program seminars include ‘Maximising workforce efficiencies – Are you getting ripped off?’ by eziTracker’s IT business strategist Meredith Rowan; and ‘All-service providers versus niche market experts’ by Jena Dyco director Jenny Boymal.
Meredith Rowan takes a look at typical behaviours of those who attend remote work sites and investigates IT solutions that can provide early detection of deceptive and tardy behaviour, enhance workforce efficiencies, improve staff safety, and reduce payroll and administration costs.
As principal of a leading Australasian training provider for the specialised cleaning and restoration industry, Jenny Boymal will explain that there are advantages in business by offering a gamut of services. However, how does that compare to being a specialist in one particular field? All will be revealed.
