Contec Professional has announced that single-use Premira® Microfiber Mop Pads are now GBAC STAR™ Registered. Under the guidance of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ (GBAC), a Division of ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, the patented Premira Microfiber Mop Pad aligns with the GBAC STAR Accreditation Program, and demonstrates cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention best practices that minimize risks associated with infectious agents like COVID-19.
As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training, and assesses readiness for biorisk situations. Being registered verifies that Premira Microfiber Mop Pads are positioned as approved for use with GBAC STAR protocols and standards and is on its way to becoming validated as meeting a higher level of cleanliness and safety.
“With so many options on the market today, it can be overwhelming for decision makers to select the best equipment, chemicals, or programs,” said GBAC Executive Director Patricia Olinger. “With GBAC STAR Registered, it’s clear which solutions and programs have been vetted by experts and meet a higher level of cleanliness and safety. This allows managers to better equip and train professionals so they can more easily and effectively uphold public health.”
“We’re incredibly proud that our Premira Microfiber mop pads are GBAC STAR Registered,” added Contec CEO Jack McBride. “For over 30 years, Contec has been providing innovative solutions and helping our partners achieve positive outcomes. We look forward to continue upholding the exceptional standards that the Global Biorisk Advisory Council and ISSA represent in our industry.”
