Healthy Facilities

Boise Idaho – The Healthy Facilities Institute (HFI) is pleased to support the two most recent books of Michael B. Ward, field advisor to HFI’s healthy facility outreach:

  • The Ultimate Procedural Handbook for School Custodians
  • The Ultimate Safety Handbook for School Custodians

“As someone who has been on the custodial front line for 30 years, Mike speaks to his peers with both authority and respect,” says Allen Rathey, principal of HFI. “Since ‘clean’ is a metaphor for healthy indoor spaces, Mike views the cleaning staff as among the school’s most important workers; directly affecting conditions for living, learning, and working.”

The Ultimate Procedural Handbook for School Custodians is an insider’s guide to maximizing efficiencies, step-by-step methods, correct product applications, equipment use and care, and inspiration.

The Ultimate Safety Handbook for School Custodians provides a guide to employees on commonly raised safety questions.

Both books are available on the Who Swings Your Mop website.
