JLL joined hands with SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, to help building owners and occupiers confirm their spaces are cleaned appropriately and safe.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has rapidly shifted the hierarchy of needs for employers and employees, putting a greater emphasis on health and safety basics,” said Cynthia Kantor, JLL’s Global Chief Product Officer for Corporate Solutions. “Open communication with employees during this time is critical and communicating the cleanliness of a space in real time is a powerful tool. This collaboration with SGS will give our clients around the world the opportunity to confirm that their spaces are clean and provide a cornerstone for healthier buildings and people.”
JLL’s collaboration with SGS will provide clients with the opportunity to verify their cleaning procedures and protocols, giving their tenants and employees peace of mind. Clients around the world can have their cleaning protocols independently inspected and verified by SGS, through either a remote inspection, validating the compliance of each location with protocols, or an in-person inspection accompanied by a series of on-site Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) tests to evaluate the efficacy of cleaning practices.
A successful in-person inspection performed by SGS experts will result in the awarding of an SGS Approval Mark with a unique QR code that signifies the space has been verified as having undergone approved cleaning procedures on a specific date.
“Every company has the responsibility to ensure that employees and visiting customers are safe,” said Peter Possemiers, Executive Vice President of SGS Environment, Health and Safety. We are proud to provide solutions, together with JLL, that help maintain a secure workplace and promise customers reliability.”
