Jamaica cleaning company, Checklist Maids was recently awarded a scholarship by Kimberly-Clark™ to take a course on infectious disease prevention and control measures. This course is specifically aimed at cleaning companies whose employees and affiliates are essential workers and are potentially exposed to the COVID-19 infection in the line of work. —
The course is organized by the ISSA, the International Sanitary Supply Association, as well as GBAC, the Global Biorisk Advisory Council. The course aimed to teach essential workers how to prepare for and how to properly respond to biohazards they may encounter in their line of work. Even though primarily important as a pandemic prevention resource, this course may be used to respond to any kind of biohazard in the future.
“Checklist Maids has only been in business for a year, but already we’ve had to face and overcome great challenges, including this global pandemic. Seeing how I believe in continual learning and improvement, applying for this scholarship was never in question,” – says Christine Ruiz, the founder of Checklist Maids. Ms. Ruiz continues: “My primary business motivator is keeping people who work with me, as well as for my customers safe. That’s why we use green cleaning solutions and that is why we have trained to be better suited to tackle this pandemic.”
About Checklist Maids: Founded in May 2019 by Christine Ruiz, the company offers a wide variety of cleaning solutions to both residential and commercial clients.
