WINNIPEG — The Manitoba Tourism Education Council (MTEC) is launching a new training program to help businesses regain consumer confidence as the reopening process begins.
Clean It Right focuses on enhancing proper cleaning and disinfection or sanitizing areas specific to each type of business and is set to be available later this month.
“The Clean It Right program has been developed with the goal to increase the safety of guests, visitors and workforce in the tourism, hospitality and retail industry,” explains Shannon Fontaine, CEO, MTEC. “This training will help people who work in the industry understand the significance of following the cleaning and disinfection procedures by adjusting current practices.”
MTEC is offering the program free of charge to Manitoba businesses in tourism, hospitality and retail until June 1, 2021. It can be accessed online, in class, or by self-study. Individuals who complete the program will be issued a certificate and businesses that train all their cleaning staff will receive a window decal to show the public they’re committed to providing a clean and safe environment.
“Clean It Right is an awareness and education program that considers our current situation given COVID-19, but will also be a program that has long term benefits for business,” Fontaine adds. “The commitment to providing a clean and safe environment for customers and employees will give a business a competitive edge.”
