IUPUI Healthy High Performance Cleaning Standards:

Healthy High Performance Cleaning (HHPC) takes traditional cleaning beyond appearances with procedures, chemicals, tools and equipment designed to make our buildings the safest, healthiest and cleanest they have ever been. Since cleaning can play a major role in the health, safety and performance of a building's occupants, implementing an HHPC program is now more import ant than ever. HHPC is a key part of operating a facility in an environmentally friendly way. It improves employee and occupant health, reduces worker compensation claims, and improves organizational reputation and brand equity among students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding community. It also presents a new opportunity to market and differentiate. Objectives of HHPC are achieved through the utilization of equipment, supplies, chemicals, hand soap, plastic and paper.
