It’s official: schools in NSW, QLD and across the country will begin reopening from next week. While this comes as great news for some parents, many will be concerned about the risk of their children contracting coronavirus and potentially spreading it to more vulnerable people, such as grandparents.

Aged care facilities have a duty of care to ensure that the patient care environment within their facility is maintained to a very high standard of absolute hygiene and cleanliness, in order to meet with and adapt to the new needs being enforced to manage and handle such a biohazard.
The choice to outsource services within your business can be a complex one and requires a thorough due diligence process.

International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) is a global international standard for regulatory compliance across a range of business fields. The most common is ISO 9001 for quality management standards. Companies with ISO Certification, like Challenger®️, are regularly audited by independent accreditation organisations and issued with improvement notices if required, together with updated re-certification. ISO Certification is the gold standard in terms of measuring a service provider’s processes, systems and adherence to the standards.
