THE PATH FORWARD

campus safe from coronavirus

We’re helping to rebuild the campus experience for a post-pandemic world.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed the campus experience in radical, unexpected ways. In the midst of so much uncertainty, our higher education and campus partners have looked to us for relief, guidance, and expertise.

Together, we share a singular goal: To create and maintain a safe environment for students, families, staff, faculty, and visitors.

We cherish our partnerships with colleges and universities, and take seriously our role as trusted advisors.

That’s why WFF is focused on The Path Forward. Our Campus Readiness Plan provides tested solutions to cleaning and disinfecting on campus, preparing for a safer return when the time is right. Learn more about how we’re equipping our teams with best practices, expert processes, and top technology to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

OUR APPROACH

For more than 45 years, clients have trusted us to create safe environments that enrich lives and facilitate success.

Educational institutions are focused on safe practices, clean facilities, and community well-being, now more than ever. At the same time, however, global uncertainty and economic strain have made planning ahead more difficult.

With a comprehensive plan for cleaning and building operations, campuses can help mitigate the dangers of COVID-19. Our Campus Readiness Plan helps plan for a more confident return to campus for students, families, staff, faculty, and visitors.

Each plan is tailored to your unique campus environment, integrating leading-edge hygienic technology with our longstanding commitment to excellence for a holistic facility services program.

Integrated disinfecting plans enhance campus life through safety, community peace of mind, and overall value.

As an experienced facility services team, we tackle both current and emerging issues proactively, while remaining flexible and adapting to changing campus needs — more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The cornerstone of every Integrated Disinfecting Plan is community safety and cleaning for health.

Each plan is engineered for success, to help eliminate pathogens and protect your reputation. And because best practices for mitigating the impact of COVID-19 evolve daily, we keep you updated as new scientific research is shared and work processes are refined.

Our guided, step-by-step process keeps you in control of facilities management processes and instills confidence as you prepare to reopen your campus.

As colleges and universities consider when and how to reopen safely, we are deploying real-world solutions via a clear, actionable, step-by-step process.

Protecting your campus starts with having the most up-to-date cleaning, disinfecting, and safety protocols.

Industry best practices guide our approach, together with guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and others. In this rapidly changing environment, we integrate updates into our workstream as they become available.

If your campus requires service for contaminated spaces after exposure or suspected exposure to COVID-19, contact us to discuss strategies and next steps.

EXPERIENCE LEADS THE WAY

Before our specialists enter any space, they complete rigorous training for:

  • Campus-specific policies and procedures
  • CDC COVID-19 protocols
  • Proper use and sequencing of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Proper use of disinfectants and campus-specific safety data sheets (SDS)
  • Operation of electrostatic sprayers and other specialized equipment
  • Deployment of social distancing equipment such as line markers
  • Contaminated spaces and risk assessment
  • Scheduling and responsive work processes
  • QA processes and documentation
  • Client-specific communications
  • Campus-specific social distancing
  • Workplace safety

We adhere to OSHA and CDC guidelines, together with industry best practices and the experience we’ve gained over more than 45 years.

We use industry-leading technology to strengthen the bond between your expectations and our performance.

Deployed at 100 percent of our campuses, our powerful, GPS-enabled software platform tracks the completion and quality of cleaning and disinfecting tasks in dormitories, classrooms, and other shared spaces with photo verification and time-stamping capabilities to validate performance.

Custom reporting can be integrated with your existing campus CMMS technology for a steady flow of information. Aligned to the unique needs of our higher education clients, our reporting calculates weighted tasks and standards to measure our service against APPA standards.

All this means you’re better prepared to communicate your efforts and results, whether with select stakeholders or the entire campus community.

As the campus community prepares to return, administrators and operations staff face a crucial opportunity: To convey a sense of confidence and action to the public.

Maintaining the confidence and trust of families will be key elements in attracting and retaining students.

To help clients navigate heightened expectations, our communications and outreach specialists work together with your staff to share information and co-branded messaging with your stakeholders, whether on a one-time or ongoing basis.

Connecting and communicating with you is important to us. We’re here when you need us, during the pandemic and beyond.

A plan is only as good as the results. That’s why Quality Assurance and operational excellence are built into our Integrated Disinfecting Plans.

Our robust QA system assures tasks are performed and verified, while customized reporting keeps you in the loop at all times. This allows for a clear, transparent understanding of our high standards.

Clients benefit from our rigorous standards, reflected in our QA process through time-stamped photo verification of completed tasks. In addition, we are happy to implement barcoding, UV testing, and ATP testing into your plan, to further validate cleaning effectiveness.

At the heart of all our work, of course, is the WFF Way. It’s the active embodiment of our core values, and of our mission:

We create safe environments that enrich lives and facilitate success.
