TORONTO, Sept. 8, 2022 /CNW/ – From September 11-17, organizations across the country are celebrating the hard work and dedication of frontline workers who sometimes go overlooked for their tireless dedication to patient surroundings – environmental services workers.

Environmental Services week is a time to show appreciation for the dedicated ES personnel. With everything that these past few years have thrown their way, ES workers have remained resilient in their efforts to help protect others from viruses and infections, well beyond COVID-19. They ensure healthcare facilities are safe places for patients, their families, and staff members.
“These last three years have been tough, to say the least,” says Bill Marra, President and CEO at HDGH. “Our ES workers have worked so hard to keep our patients and team safe and working in a clean environment. We’re happy to recognize our team for the work they’ve been doing and continue to do.”
At HDGH, ES workers depend on Clorox Healthcare™ Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectant Wipes for deep cleaning and disinfecting. These products are Health Canada-registered and are proven to be effective and safe to use on a variety of surfaces, when used as directed. The Clorox Healthcare™ Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner Disinfectant Wipes kills SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19† in just thirty seconds and is compatible with equipment surfaces.
“Now more than ever we need to be celebrating our frontline workers. Their dedication to patients and passion for their job are unmatched. And we really value our partnerships with HDGH,” said Barley Chironda, Sales Director and International Infection Control Specialist, CloroxPro Canada. “With the use of CloroxPro® products, ES workers can be confident they’ve cleaned and disinfected those hard to clean areas to help prevent the spread of illness causing germs.”
“We’re here for patient care,” said Justin Quinn, Manager of Environmental Services & Material Management. “We measure cleanliness through best practices and with a 72 check-point in the Public Health Ontario (PHO) Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee (PIDAC) to clean over 1 million square feet of surfaces weekly. Our goal is to be considered the cleanest hospital in Ontario, and we want to do this while reducing our overall environmental footprint. Partners who understand our goals, like CloroxPro® Canada, help make this possible.”
