Understanding effective cleaning: methods... measurement... management...
The Cleaning Industry Research Institute tells us that the theme of its 2019 Science Symposium, 'Understanding Effective Cleaning', was adopted as the topic last month at a combined meeting of CIRI executive committee and Science Advisory Council members.
SAC chair, Steven Spivak, Ph.D., is spearheading the selection of the symposium's technical agenda. "This theme reflects CIRI's core competency," he says. "Methods, measurement and management are critical elements required for effective cleaning, including disaster restoration. Those attending the 2019 symposium will gain a new and deeper understanding of these concepts that collectively define effective cleaning and restoration.
"Equally important to CIRI is that science and research be practical and useful. In fact, we see the interrelationship of research and practice not only as essential, but as a two-way street whereby better practices are examined and validated by research and research leads to still better practices."
CIRI has also announced that Greg Whiteley, Ph.D. will deliver the keynote presentation, 'Anticipating Threats to Human Health'. CIRI executive director John Downey had this to say about Whiteley's selection:
"Greg Whiteley is nearly without peer as a researcher and a communicator in the areas of disinfection and cleaning science. Having worked with Dr Whiteley at technical conferences the past few years, I knew he would be the perfect person to get the conference underway on the right note. We are fortunate and grateful that Greg will be able to make the trip from Australia to speak at CIRI's 2019 Science Symposium."
The event will be held at scenic Miami University in Ohio, US, from 15th - 17th July. CIRI is also issuing a call for papers and any individual or organisation interested in presenting a technical or research is invited to contact CIRI executive director John Downey via:
