At ABM, the safety of our team members, our clients, and the public is always of primary importance in everything that we do. In light of the fluid situation regarding COVID-19, ABM remains vigilant in monitoring the most up-to-date safety, infection control and cleaning protocols recommended by global experts, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the U.K. National Health Service (NHS) and others.
We are actively engaged with our Safety, Service Delivery and Operations teams globally to ensure the appropriate information is shared and the needs are met of clients and team members.
Many ABM clients are asking whether we offer an enhanced cleaning option beyond current service levels. The answer is "yes."
A comprehensive site assessment produces a framework for wellbeing that helps build occupant trust. A one-time deep cleaning of your site readies your facilities for occupancy.
A recurring cleaning and disinfection program further instills occupant confidence. Occupant communications reiterate mutual social contracts.
Electrostatic spraying that goes beyond high touch point disinfection resets facilities. Broader disinfection at periodic intervals based on your facility’s risk profile.
