As a special, opening presentation at CIRI’s Green Cleaning and Science Symposium, April 27-29 in Atlanta the keynote speaker Dr. Richard Shaughnessy will present a summary and results of the work to date on a Clean Standard for Schools. Dr. Shaughnessy is the director of indoor air quality research at the University of Tulsa (Okla.). He is well known for his pioneering research on indoor environmental quality, scientific methods and testing. He is one of the research directors leading the CIRI Clean Standard research program for green and healthy schools.

The objective of the ISSA-CIRI research and development program for a “Clean Standard for K-12 Schools” is to scientifically determine and measure the cleanliness of school interiors, both surfaces and airborne environments, for the purpose of promoting improved indoor environmental quality for schools nationwide. In this way, the ISSA and CIRI research will validate not only the measurement techniques to evaluate what is “clean” versus soiled, healthy versus unhealthy; but also to permit a realistic and reliable measure of the importance and effectiveness of high performance cleaning products, methods and systems.

With these goals in mind, ISSA and CIRI developed, and are now implementing, a fully operational plan which includes world class research on clean measurements indoors, the means to achieve cleaner and healthier schools for our nation’s youth, and the development of a clean standard practice, protocol and criteria to accomplish these goals. Integral with this approach, ISSA and CIRI are developing the means to adequately measure the science of clean indoors.
