The following public areas are to be cleaned and disinfected daily:
- Restrooms and Elevators (once a day) and in 24 hour heavy-use buildings (up to 4 times a day)
- Classrooms (daily dependent upon classroom usage and time available to effectively disinfect)
- Meeting Rooms and Conference rooms (once a day)
- Lobbies/Common Space/Stairs (once a day)
Disinfectant is sprayed and left for a dwell time of 2 minutes. The EPA-registered disinfectant being used is: ·A non-toxic, hypochlorous solution using Annihilare technology that is on the Environmental Protection Agency list. https://www.annihilare.com/. See the link to the safety data sheet under "Operational Changes" on this page. For all other areas, Gen-Eon solutions will be used as usual.
Hand Sanitizer Dispensers
Hand sanitizer dispensers are refilled by Building Services. These are located at building entrances, restrooms and other common areas.
Building managers can request refill bottles through the EHS order form. Extra bottles are also available to order if needed for reception desks, etc.
AWARE (Actively Working to Achieve Resource Efficiency) Program Requires Occupants to Empty Their Own Trash
The AWARE program requires each faculty or staff member to:
- Empty their waste containers into the larger bins located within the building.
- Place all office paper in larger recycling bins.
- Empty any food waste into the solid waste/landfill containers DAILY.
Moving forward Custodians will no longer be servicing desk-side or office waste containers.
This transition will save the Institute resources and support advancement of Georgia Tech’s sustainability goals related to waste diversion. It will also allow our custodial teams to spend more time disinfecting buildings to protect our campus community.
