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. It’s undoubtedly a tough decision to send kids back to school, but with the right cleaning practices put in place, the risk can be reduced.
Not many people would give much thought to their garbage chute; that vertical pathway that guides your garbage to its collection area at the street level or basement. There is one built on every high rise building floor just so you can throw your rubbish away at ease without having to make the journey downstairs.

As the world tries to make sense of the coronavirus crisis, it is clear that the elderly are especially at risk and in need of extra precautions to protect their health. 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.
CoronaVirus (COVID-19) has infected more than 240,000 people around the world and can survive from hours to several days on doorknobs, handrails, elevator buttons and other hard surfaces. By touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes, a person is at high risk of contracting CoronaVirus.
The choice to outsource services within your business can be a complex one and requires a thorough due diligence process. Remember you are entrusting another business to provide not just operational support but the delivery of the entire business process. Whether it be Information Technology, Human Resources, Facilities Management or Finance, there are some obvious points to consider and some less recognisable areas which require your attention.
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.
