Track Title Environmental2 

Humor in HAZWOPER | Rogelio Horta and Marjorie Toros of ehs

Every year thousands of people are mandated to renew their HAZWOPER training annually. Reviewing this information year after year can become tedious, especially if you’re unlucky enough to get an instructor that just reads off the PowerPoint. Through my experience I want to share how to take a class people have to take and change it into a class they want to take every year. Teaching through jokes, storytelling, technology applications and games, students can be excited about safety training.

Times, They are A-Changing for Cleaners | Werner Buchman & Pat Muller of Legend Brands

 Government regulations, Prop 65 warnings, social media, customer reviews, employee safety, education, and changes to materials like stone, tile and laminate/engineered flooring – all are major influencers shaping the future of the cleaning industry. And, it isn’t ALL bad – some of it’s amazing! However, there has never been a more critical time for cleaning entrepreneurs to stay on top of current and impending changes and have a strategy to position their businesses to take advantage of the new opportunities.

Forty-year industry veteran, IICRC instructor and mentor of many Pat Muller will discuss how new flooring trends require new approaches to cleaning. Pat will also share proven techniques to acquire those coveted 5-star reviews.
