Scheduling the cleaning of any medical facility, especially hospitals, is very challenging due to the 24-hours a day operating schedule. Specifically, any large area that require cleaning, such as hall ways may require strategically blocking off specific areas of the hospital until the project is finished. The same holds true for public rest rooms and hospital cafeterias. Other areas such as recovery rooms, intensive care units, and assisted living facilities may also require the mitigation of noise caused by buffers and vacuum cleaners. A growing number of health care facilities now require that floors and hard surface areas are vacuumed and not dust mopped due to because of the amount of dust and particulates that become airborne throughout the medical facilities when dust mopping is used.
The Hazard Communications Standard (HCS), established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), requires that the hazards of all chemicals, produced or imported, be evaluated and information concerning their hazards, if any, be transmitted to employees who may be exposed to those chemicals under operating conditions or in foreseeable emergencies.

The programs includes identifying and listing all hazardous chemicals present in the workplace.
