Audit

November 20, 2020

Sani Certified

Audit Evaluations Consist Of:

- Particle Quantity Counting
- Mapping out high-interaction areas
- Reviewing current sanitization practices
- Identifying high-touch points
- Reviewing organizational changes and standards
- Taking multiple air and surface quality measurements

The Sani Technology precedent well exceeds local, state, and federal cleanliness standards. Our in-depth evaluations take into account consumer, employee, and organization safety. The proactive measures we then recommend allow businesses to reopen, and stay open, when allowed, through the Covid-19 pandemic.

500

To the left shows the rating assigned to each environmental factor related to safety and cleanliness in the workplace. This audit serves as a benchmark for future assessments and will be referenced to maximize cleanliness and minimize the risk of Covid-19. 

Air Quality

Use portable high-efficiency particulate air fan/filtration systems to help enhance air cleaning
Increase air filtration as high as possible without significantly diminishing design airflow.
Consider using ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) as a supplement to help inactivate SARS-CoV-2, especially if options for increasing room ventilation are limited.

Rating:

100
100

Rating according to air quality testing, confirmed sanitization cycles, air flow, and HVAC filtration system (If the space has a centralized system)

Particle Counting PCE Numbers

The PCE-PCO 1 is a laser particle counter that measures the concentration of particles in the air. The device is ideal for monitoring clean rooms, indoor air quality, exposure to exhaust, tobacco or cigarette smoke and other harmful air pollutants and levels of airborne dust. We administer this test first during the evaluation phase, then periodically thereafter with our audit system. We compare data before and after the test to determine the reduction of harmful particles in the air and assess overall air quality.

Surface Hygiene

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces within the space and at least daily or between use as much as possible. Use of shared objects should be limited when possible or cleaned between use.
Develop a schedule for increased frequency of routine cleaning and disinfection.
Ensure safe and correct use and storage of cleaning and disinfection products, including storing products securely away from children. Use products that meet EPA disinfection criteria, cleaning products should not be used near children, and staff should ensure that there is adequate ventilation when using these products to prevent inhaling toxic fumes.

Rating:

100

Rating according to microbe protein swab testing, confirmed sanitation cycles, and cleaning materials

Bacteria Surface Swab Test

PRO-Clean bacteria swabs are the easiest and most accurate way to verify the cleanliness of surfaces. Swabs are administered to a surface and release reagents, then change color based on how much protein residue is present. Testing for protein residue is a good indicator of surface contamination because it is more difficult to remove from surfaces than glucose or other residues. This type of surface quality testing is reliable, accurate, and instantly validates surface hygiene. We administer this test in tandem with our air quality testing.

Operational Changes

Space seating/desk at least 6 feet apart.
Provide physical guides, such as tape on floors or sidewalks and signs on walls, to ensure that staff and individuals remain at least 6 feet apart in lines and at other times (e.g. guides for creating “one way routes” in hallways).
Post signs in highly visible locations (e.g., entrances, restrooms) that promote everyday protective measures and describe how to stop the spread of germs (such as by properly washing hands and properly wearing a mask)
Use simple, clear, and effective language about behaviors that prevent spread of COVID-19 when communicating with staff and individuals
Ensure adequate supplies to minimize sharing of high touch materials to the extent possible or limit use of supplies and equipment by groups at a time and clean and disinfect between use.
Take temperature of individuals as they enter the space
Limit any nonessential visitors, volunteers, and activities involving external groups or organizations as possible – especially with individuals who are not from the local geographic area (e.g., community, town, city, county).

Rating:

95
100

Rating according to observed operational changes, promotion of educational material, and reinforcement of good hygiene

Education

Clients/students/members who have symptoms of any infectious illness or symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should not attend space in-person.
Staff should be strongly encouraged to monitor clients/members/children for signs of infectious illness including COVID-19 every day.
Conduct training virtually or ensure that social distancing is maintained during training.
Train staff on all safety protocols.
Share facts about COVID-19 regularly through trusted sources of information to counter the spread of misinformation and mitigate fear.

Rating:

90
100

Rating according to educational material and processes communicated to individuals using the space

Precautionary Contact Equipment

Support healthy hygiene behaviors by providing adequate supplies, including soap and water, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol , paper towels, tissues, disinfectant wipes, masks (as feasible) and no-touch/foot-pedal trash cans.
Reinforce use of masks
Encourage individuals to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Used tissues should be thrown in the trash and hands washed immediately.
If soap and water are not readily available, hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol should be used.

Rating:
