The custodial department at Wake Forest took home two awards from the national OS1 Symposium held in New Orleans on Aug. 6. The Simon Institute, a nonprofit organization that supports the cleaning industry, awarded Best Cleaning Quality Improvement and Certification Program to the Wake Forest team.
The awards come in the third year of Wake Forest’s transition to a new cleaning management system called OS1, which provides a higher level of cleanliness and better accountability in cleaning buildings. About half the University has transitioned to this system, including most of the academic buildings.
Also, six WFU custodians were recognized with Outstanding Cleaning Worker awards.
• Myrtle Farabee
• Susie Hardwick
• Charles Nicholson
• Ederman Palaez de Herrera
• Gary Samuels
• Michael Woodard
