Centennial College´s Healthcare Environmental Services Management program was designed to meet the demand for qualified environmental services managers with the ability to develop systems and processes to protect workers, clients and patients from environmental hazards present in the health care setting and operate buildings that are safe.
Today´s health care environment is changing, and there is an increased need for infection control measures, outbreak or pandemic planning, isolation cleaning levels, emergency preparedness and response in the health care setting. In the courses of this college health diploma program, you learn to develop, implement and monitor operating systems and preventative maintenance in the housekeeping, laundry, maintenance and transportation areas within the environmental department of a health care facility. You´ll also learn about the emergence of new technologies to fight antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" and to help support disease control of bacteria and viruses.
The curriculum includes concepts of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), as well as going "green" for a healthier environment and to reduce pollution and our carbon footprint. You also research the use of effective eco-friendly products with lower volatile organic compounds.
During your time in this healthcare program, you are informed of the wide range of environmental issues health care facilities are encountering as they work to comply with the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC), Health Canada, Occupational Health and Safety, Provincial Infectious Diseases Advisory Committee (PIDAC) and other regulatory requirements.
To help you to acquire the necessary skills, the Healthcare Environmental Services Management program exposes you to the industry´s best practices and continuous quality improvements to coordinate and monitor building, sanitation, maintenance and operating systems.
