The coronavirus pandemic has changed the view of cleaning and hygiene forever. Understanding how to break the chain of infection has never been more important.

The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association’s (CHSA) webinar – ‘8 Moments of Targeted Hygiene’ – will help contract cleaners and facilities managers break the chain. The speakers are Professor Sally Bloomfield, Chair of the Scientific Advisory Board of the International Scientific Forum on Home Hygiene (IFH), and Dr. John Hines, global Research, Development and Engineering (RD&E) Director for CHSA member SC Johnson Professional.

Dr. Hines and Professor Bloomfield were amongst the team of experts who developed the white paper ‘8 Moments of Targeted Hygiene’. In the paper they identify the 8 key moments of high risk for spreading infection in workplaces and public facilities.

Lorcan Mekitarian, chair of the CHSA, will introduce the webinar. He explained: “Infections, including COVID-19, are mostly spread by people interacting directly by touch or airborne routes, or indirectly via surfaces touched by others or infected foods and food surfaces. We want to help people break this chain by spreading the word about the key moments and providing practical information on how best to approach them.”

Dr. John Hines is global Research, Development and Engineering (RD&E) Director for SC Johnson Professional. He received his doctorate in Physical Chemistry at Oxford University before joining Unilever Research. John has held his current position since 2010 and is focused on the development and implementation of better professional hygiene solutions for healthcare, education, food and many other institutional settings.

Professor Sally F Bloomfield is a consultant in Hygiene and Infectious Disease Prevention, Chairman and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of IFH; Honorary Professor, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, London, UK. She is an acknowledged expert on home hygiene, with more than 30 years’ experience in hygiene research and education.
