Wisconsin Center

In fall of 2020, the Wisconsin Center received Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) StarAccreditation status from ISSA, the global standard for stringent cleaning protocols. As the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation, GBAC STAR™ helps organizations establish protocols and procedures, offers expert-led training and assesses a facility’s readiness for biorisk situations. This ongoing program verifies that Wisconsin Center implements best practices to prepare for, respond to and recover from outbreaks and infectious disease.
