BSCAI announces Clean Award recipients
Building Service Contractors Association International has announced the recipients of the BSCAI Clean Awards, which demonstrate the best in excellence among building service contractors and categories.
Recipients - ranging from new members to business leadership - were recognised at the BSCAI 2019 Contacting Success Conference in Las Vegas.
The winners were chosen by the BSCAI Awards Committee made up of 13 individuals from member companies.
Making its debut this year is the BSCAI Emerging Leader Award Presented by Contracting Profits. This award is granted to someone who is 40 years old or younger, demonstrates excellence, and is making positive contributions to the contract cleaning industry. This rising star can be the owner of a contract cleaning company or a member of a company's executive team. The inaugural recipient of this award is Michael Marrazzo of Summit Facility Solutions.
The BSCAI Cleaning for Health Award honours BSCs that have Cleaning for Health programs, a cleaning regimen that helps reduce the levels of allergens and asthma triggers in indoor environments. A Cleaning for Health program consists of policies, procedures and training that emphasises the impact on the health of building occupants and staff in addition to equipment that reduces building contaminants and minimises environmental impact.
Since 2015, the Skip Marsden Education Excellence Award has been given to companies that promote leaders from within their organisations and who demonstrate an overall commitment to growth and development by investing in education and training for their employees.
The Arthur C. Barraclough Company Community Service Award recognises companies for their volunteer effort for charities and the community, and BSCAI makes a donation to a charity of the winner's choice on their behalf. Other company awards include the Safety Award (given to companies of all sizes with the best safety records), the Industry Service Award, the New Member of the Year Award and the Image Award (given to companies in one of three size categories that have excelled in enhancing the image of their business).
In addition to company awards, BSCAI Clean Awards recognise individuals in the industry. The Building Service Employee of the Year Award honours BSC employees whose job performance, civic involvement and family role best exemplify qualities found in superior custodial employees. The Walter L. Cook Award for Distinguished Service is presented to a BSCAI member who has made outstanding contributions in furthering the programs and image of the association and the BSC industry, while the James E. Purcell Leadership Award - the most prestigious annual award, recognises individuals of long-term service to the association and the industry.
