Innosanitation - The Wave Of The Future, Part 7
The curriculum must be based on the standards which are acknowledged to be sufficient to perform the Innosanitation cleaning tasks to an acceptable level of proficiency. These standards may vary from one industry and location to another: A careful evaluation must be conducted to determine whether the desired cleanliness level to be achieved through Innosanitation cleaning processes in, for example, the loading dock of a petrochemic supplier is identical to that which should be found in a hospital restroom.
Once these standards are set, the curriculum must be centered on ensuring that all janitorial staff receive a minimum acceptable score (the "passing grade") on tests of performance, skill and knowledge of Innosanitation cleaning procedures. Standards must also be clearly communicated to the trainees and duly enforced on aspects pertaining to:
- Uniform rules
- Smoking rules
- Attendance rules
- Behavior during training rules
- Scheduling of breaks
- Length of training
- Pay during training
The trainees must be aware that there are firm ground rules for the training and that a disciplinary course of action is present should it be required due to the trainees' non-adherence to the basic guidelines. The trainee must be aware at all times that they are responsible for their actions.
Selecting An Instructor
Any Innosanitation cleaning janitorial training instructor must have a working knowledge and understanding of the subject matter. The instructor must also have demonstrated abilities in teaching techniques and the preferred procedures for behavior management. The instructor must also have well developed scheduling skills which will allow for the optimal use of the allotted training time.
Experience is the best indicator of potential success in Innosanitation cleaning training. You may find that it is not an overly simple task to locate an experienced instructor who is well versed in the various details which constitute the Innosanitation processes, as the technology is fairly new and only recently is it being considered for adoption across the board. If the prospective instructor can demonstrate that they have had previous successes in Innosanitation cleaning training, then the chances are excellent that the success will be duplicated in your setting. If the possibility exists to observe the prospective instructor while they are conducting another Innosanitation cleaning training session, that observation should be scheduled and an evaluation conducted. A mock training session may be organized to achieve this goal.
Once the proper instructor has been secured, it is important to familiarize the trainer with your facility, the specifics of the training program they will be administering, and the curriculum that they will be utilizing. This will ensure that the Innosanitation cleaning information which you wish to instill on the janitorial staff will be communicated with maximum efficiency.
The instructor must be skilled in a variety of teaching tasks and must thoroughly comprehend the bilateral nature of proper training: The instructor must listen to the input of the trainees as well as impart information. In Innosanitation cleaning janitorial training instruction precedes production, thus tasks must be introduced in a coherent and comprehendible manner.
