BICSc Chair Joins Mitie as New Director of Cleaning Services
16 June 2021
 

Mitie has announced that Lorraine Davis has been appointed as Director of Cleaning Services.

Davis has over 40 years of experience in the cleaning industry, working in a number of operational and business development roles in complex environments, such as healthcare and education.

In 2019, Lorraine was appointed Chair of the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc), a post she will continue to hold until September 2022.

She has also previously collaborated with the World Health Organisation, as part of the Clean Hospital Group, and the NHS to help develop the 2021 National Cleaning Standards for hospitals. In addition, Lorraine has worked with Public Health England to support the development of the COVID-19 guidance for facilities management.

 

Developing Innovative Cleaning Solutions

 

As Director of Cleaning Services, Lorraine will develop Mitie’s ‘Centre of Excellence’ training academy as well as drive Mitie’s innovation-led approach to cleaning, such as robotic cleaners that use ultraviolet light to disinfect surfaces and sensors that monitor footfall to identify spaces that are used frequently and where cleaning should be prioritised.

Jason Towse, Managing Director, Business Services, Mitie, said: “The coronavirus pandemic has made clear just how important a clean environment is to create safe and healthy workspaces. Having helped introduce many of the nationally-recognised cleaning guidelines that we now take for granted, Lorraine brings a wealth of experience that will keep Mitie at the forefront of innovation, ensuring we have access to the latest science behind our cleaning services. With offices, retail shops and restaurants reopening, this will help our clients reassure their customers that they’re doing everything they can to keep them safe.”
