ISSA completes phase I of research for clean standard for schools

October 2, 2009

ISSA and its research partner, the Cleaning Industry Research Institute, have completed Phase I of their research-consisting of laboratory and limited field testing in 70 schools and two day-care facilities-to determine the best methodologies and measurement systems that ultimately will form the foundation for a clean standard for K-12 schools.

“Based on the research conducted to date, ISSA is confident that this project will produce a scientific-based, pragmatic standard that will significantly improve the quality of the learning environment for students in K-12 schools across the nation and that will also provide ISSA members with a valuable tool that will help them succeed in today’s demanding and increasingly more health conscious marketplace,” said ISSA Director of Legislative Affairs Bill Balek.
