JLL and SGS to Verify Cleaning Procedures and Protocols for Workplaces

JLL and SGS To Verify Cleaning Procedures and Protocols for Workplaces
16 July 2020
 

JLL is collaborating with SGS to help building owners and occupiers confirm their spaces are cleaned appropriately and safely.

JLL’s recent research revealed that 58 per cent of distant workers have missed the office. However, it’s also clear that for occupiers and owners to re-open their workplaces successfully, they need to assure employees and tenants that their space is clean and safe. 

The collaboration with SGS will provide JLL’s clients with the opportunity to verify their cleaning procedures and protocols, giving their tenants and employees peace of mind

SGS is an inspection, verification, testing and certification company, operating a network of over 2,600 offices and laboratories around the world.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly shifted the hierarchy of needs for employers and employees, putting a greater emphasis on health and safety basics,” said Cynthia Kantor, JLL’s Global Chief Product Officer for Corporate Solutions. 

“Open communication with employees during this time is critical and communicating the cleanliness of a space in real-time is a powerful tool. This collaboration with SGS will give our clients around the world the opportunity to confirm that their spaces are clean and provide a cornerstone for healthier buildings and people.”

JLL’s clients around the world will be able to have their cleaning protocols independently inspected and verified by SGS, through either a remote inspection, validating the compliance of each location with protocols, or an in-person inspection accompanied by a series of on-site Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) tests to evaluate the efficacy of cleaning practices. 

A successful in-person inspection performed by SGS experts will result in the awarding of an SGS Approval Mark with a unique QR code that signifies the space has been verified as having undergone approved cleaning procedures on a specific date. 

“Every company has the responsibility to ensure that employees and visiting customers are safe,” said Peter Possemiers, Executive Vice President of SGS Environment, Health and Safety. We are proud to provide solutions, together with JLL, that help maintain a secure workplace and promise customers reliability.”
