This introductory sustainability Green Cleaning course covers the knowledge and skills required to participate in environmentally sustainable work practices more commonly known as a ‘Green Cleaning Program’. The course is designed for all staff working in any cleaning operation.
The course teaches students to identify current resource usage in the workplace; understand how to perform a simple site audit to recognise sustainable (green) improvements; eliminate and/or replace hazardous chemicals with less hazardous chemicals; reduce the use of resources and select appropriate chemicals and equipment to support a green cleaning program.
