The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) has added a science symposium to its technical conference, taking place 9 to 11 August, at the Big Sky Resort in Big Sky, Montana.
The symposium titled, “The Microbiome and its Impact on Cleaning, Contracting and the Restoration Sciences,” will take place from 1 pm to 5 pm on Friday 11 August, and will feature discussions by Dr. Gene Cole and Dr. Greg Whiteley.
The Cleaning Industry Research Institute (CIRI) will also be joining the IICRC for a special discussion on a major new trend in cleaning science and disaster restoration and its impact on business strategy and hygiene practices.
“Believe it or not, human health and hygiene, the microbiome and small businesses are all interconnected,” said John Downey, editor of the IICRC’s Journal of Cleaning, Restoration & Inspection and coordinator of The Summit.
“Understanding the world in which we live, as well as the bacteria and microorganisms within it, can help us to improve cleaning, hygiene and restoration practices within our industry.”
The CIRI science symposium will discuss issues to help business owners achieve healthy outcomes, add value to their businesses and improve business sustainability.
