Food Safety: Your Health (& Others) is in Your Hand Hygiene

By: Chris Meyer  |  May 3, 2019

Each year on World Hand Hygiene Day (May 5), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) campaign to spread awareness about the importance of hand hygiene in healthcare environments.

While the importance of hand hygiene in healthcare can’t be understated, it’s not just healthcare workers whose hand hygiene practices could potentially pose a serious health issue for others. Foodservice workers’ hand hygiene, or lack thereof, also has a significant impact on the health of the public. 

So, just as the CDC and the WHO have done for healthcare workers, WAXIE is aiming to bring awareness of the need for hand hygiene improvement in the foodservice industry too on this year’s World Hand Hygiene Day. 

Towards that end, this post will illustrate the importance of hand hygiene in the foodservice industry and demonstrate how your organization can start implementing best practices for improving hand hygiene immediately.

WAXIE Brings Innovative Electrostatic Spraying System to Able Services San Francisco

March 26, 2019

Bill Sivori, Project Manager at Able Services San Francisco, does things differently than most. First, his contract cleaning business is devoted to a single client. But, that one account happens to be the largest landowner in San Francisco, with a four-building complex covering four square blocks, a total of 3.2 million square feet of Class A offices, 1.2 million in retail space, as well as the tallest building west of the Mississippi located a few blocks away. Sivori’s office is based in those very same buildings and once or twice a month he walks all 141 floors to build tenant relationships and to be proactive rather than reactive when there's a problem.

“I've been here eight years and have a great staff with an inordinate amount of management for four buildings, including an operations manager, full admin, two supervisors and eight foremen,” said Sivori. “We have close to 400 different tenants, most of which are high end lawyers, investment bankers, insurance and high-tech companies. Tenants trust when we say we're going to do something, it gets done.”

Water for All: Ways Businesses Can Reduce Their Water Usage

By Chris Meyer  |  March 22 , 2019

The fact that clean water will readily flow from the faucet is a given in the developed world. In developing countries, though, finding potable water is often a daily struggle.

That’s why today, World Water Day, is dedicated to “tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.” And one of those reasons is the rate at which businesses and individuals in the developed world use water.

According to the African Wildlife Foundation, “If the entire global population had the water habits of the average European or North American, we would need about three and a half Earths to sustain us.”

As gloomy as that may sound, the good news is, there’s no shortage of products, education, and new technology that our businesses can leverage to conserve the water supply.

How to Implement a Day Cleaning Program at Your Facility

By Chris Meyer  |  February 7, 2019

If you’ve ever proposed a day cleaning program at your facility, you’ve likely run into at least one of the following arguments: 

  1. It’s too disruptive to building occupants
  2. Tenants don’t want custodial staff around in front of clients
  3. It’s harder to clean with people in the building

To be sure, these aren’t invalid arguments, but none of them are insurmountable if you’re strategic about how you develop and implement a day cleaning program at your facility. But before we get into the nuts and bolts of how to make a day cleaning program work, let’s review the benefits of doing so.
