Healthcare facilities are designed to improve the lives and health of patients. That said, these facilities are, by their very nature, riddled with germs, some of which can be highly contagious. As such, nurses, doctors, and other staff members must do their best to steer clear of infections while still providing the best possible care for their patients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthcare providers might be required to wash their hands up to 100 times ...

Here we’ll explore five major differences between local janitorial services and national pro...

If you turn on the news, you’re bound to hear countless claims of job losses and dying industries. While it’s true that the economy is always evolving and that automation and green initiatives have changed the working landscape, there is still a huge demand for quality janitorial services, and it looks to stay that way in Nashville, Tennessee and beyond. In order to fill these jobs, our society must battle against the lingering stigma of “dirty jobs” and/or “unskilled labor” as a who...

Many independent schools have wellness policies in place, or have begun the process of implementing one. In a 2015 NAIS survey, 21 percent of independent schools that responded reported that they had a health or well-being policy. Wellness is an integral piece of the health and prevention puzzle, but schools who only address student wellness miss an incredible opportunity to keep teachers and staff healthy, save money, reduce teacher burnout and improve student outcomes. Wellness is the ...
