Best Guidelines for Pathogen Abatement

So how clean is clean? As with the COVID-19 pandemic itself, there is misinformation and uncertainty regarding the real and perceived risks associated with the cleaning and disinfection of workplaces. Employers, property and building managers must make decisions daily regarding the assessment and evaluation of risks, often with limited information.

There are currently no regulations which define cleanliness. Without standards or guidelines to follow, the cleaning industry has a myriad of methodologies and techniques, with varying levels of efficacy. That’s why Pario’s Environmental Hygiene Team provides disinfection protocols and third-party verification testing of the cleanliness of potential contamination of given sites. By evaluating the site-specific risks, recommending cleaning protocols and risk reduction strategies, and using the best guidelines in the industrial hygiene industry, Pario provides science-based direction to help you make decisions and provide a higher level of confidence.

Various guidance regarding the assessment and abatement of pathogens (including COVID-19) has been prepared by a wide variety of institutions, including, but not limited to:

  • The Environmental Abatement Council of Ontario (EACO).
  • Health Canada.
  • The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (United States).
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (United States).
