About this session:

Facility managers can now source cleaning products that disclose their ingredients. This is an important step in protecting custodial teams and building occupants from product ingredients that can cause asthma, skin rash and chronic disease. This discussion will explore how the industry is navigating California’s new ingredient labeling law by turning to a standardized Formula Facts label for cleaning products modeled on the Nutrition Facts label for food. Panelists will demonstrate how they have used ingredient labels to improve procurement and illuminate which common chemicals to look out for as ingredient labeling goes mainstream.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the new Cleaning Products Right to Know Act
2. Learn how to effectively use product ingredient labels in your specifications
3. Learn how to spot some of the most common health hazards in conventional cleaning products
4. Prepare your business and educate employees
