Diversey, a global hygiene and cleaning company, has announced the launch of its new Shield Program. The program is designed to respond to the new era of cleanliness, as facilities worldwide begin the process of reopening following the pandemic. Diversey’s Shield Program will be launched globally across the full range of sectors in which Diversey operates, including foodservice. 

The Shield Program combines the acknowledged global expertise of Diversey and Diversey Consulting to provide a unique end-to-end solution. It certifies/verifies participating establishments in three key areas:  

  • Hygiene Protocols: Diversey’s Hygiene guidelines are designed to help minimize the risk for guests and workers and provide the tools facilities need to be successful. This includes working with businesses to develop, train, and verify Diversey’s two-step cleaning and disinfection processes through the use of Diversey’s patented AHP technology, which delivers hospital-grade disinfection for a shorter contact time to inactivate and kill the virus.  
  • Food Safety: The professionals on the Diversey Consulting team specialize in risk management to ensure effective food safety and outbreak preparation. This help is supported by the Diversey Hygiene Academy—a cloud-based e-learning training system —which enables customers to integrate Diversey’s best-in-class knowledge into their operations as an essential step in keeping staff safe, minimizing risks to food safety and safeguarding their brand.  
  • COVID Safety: The COVID-19 operational support program has been developed to help businesses prepare and adapt to the ongoing circumstances, and to ensure compliance with the local health authorities and government policies. So, whether it be for a re-opening or for an already functional business, this program puts a special focus on people’s behaviors. The objective is to protect staff and customers by limiting the possibilities of the spread of infection. 

Businesses that match Diversey’s stringent program requirements are allowed to display the Shield. It is awarded to those facilities whose staff have properly implemented and are committed to upholding the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness and disinfection. Once enrolled as a member of the Shield Program, businesses will undergo periodic audits that deliver a thorough and all-encompassing independent verification that they are continuing to maintain the highest level of cleaning and disinfection.
