Kimberly-Clark Professional Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ (GBAC) Scholarship Program to Provide New Infectious Disease Awareness Training for Cleaning Professionals
"Cleaning professionals have been our frontline heroes throughout the pandemic, and we are committed to providing them with resources to ensure the businesses they support run safely," said
The new 30-minute online course, "Infectious Disease Awareness in the Workplace," will increase the participant's knowledge about infectious diseases, including how they spread and make people sick. The course covers the importance of infectious disease prevention programs and how they help with the mitigation or prevention of infectious diseases like COVID-19 in the workplace as well as regulatory compliance.
"Infectious disease knowledge continues to be in demand during and after the pandemic. As a result, cleaning for health needs to remain a priority in the built environment," said GBAC Executive Director
The first 500 eligible cleaning professionals who register for the program will be able to complete the GBAC course at no cost. Building service contractors who qualify as a small business will be given priority placement into the program. The program will also award 50 percent of the scholarships to women.
