Diversey is a hygiene company, and these brands have only become more visible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Headquartered in Fort Mill, S.C., Diversey delivers cleaning and hygiene technologies for hospitality, healthcare, food and beverage, retail and other sectors around the globe. The company offers a zillion products that can range from one-step disinfectant cleaner wipes to big totes of ultra-specific chemical applicants (like this Nonstick cleaner, a liquid, low foaming blend of acids for cleaning hard cheese molds in milk and dairy applications).
In the brewing industry, Diversey offers equally specific products that range from its Diversey Beer Clean bar glass cleaner to its cool DiverCraft program, a completely customized, total cleaning and sanitation service specifically designed for the needs of a craft brewery. Extending its support further for the food and beverage industry during these sanitation-first times, Diversey is now offering a special access deal on its cloud-based Hygiene Academy platform training packages for food and bev employees and craft breweries, whereby individuals can receive a 30 percent discount until 31st August.*
How does this all work?
The Hygiene Academy’s program provides the opportunity to upgrade skills with the power and convenience of e-learning. As Fabrizio Tardioli, Knowledge Based Services Leader, Diversey explained in the press release:
“In these challenging circumstances, we recognize how many of our partners are having to balance staff absence with the necessity to keep production going. This is alongside any expectations of hitting the ground running when business returns to some kind of normality. The Hygiene Academy offers an excellent option to ensure that standards and knowledge are maintained or enhanced prior to any return to work — especially if staff have been laid off for an indefinite period. Diversey are determined to offer support throughout this difficult time and feel one of the safest and best ways is to offer this special package of access to our Hygiene Academy.”
The package provides the following training for 10 employees:
- Basic hygiene and cleaning concepts
- Cleaning chemistry
- Food microbiology
- Disinfection (Sanitation)
- Monitoring and documentation
- Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP)
- Personal Hygiene for Food and Beverage Plants
- Safe handling and application of detergents and disinfectants**
**Available in English only and free of charge with a Hygiene Academy account.

Companies will find the cloud-based Hygiene Academy an attractive option as there is no requirement to invest in expensive hardware or software at this financially sensitive time, and training can be consistently delivered across the workforce. Accountability is ensured by tracking employee participation, with their performance and progress at employee, site and/or country level efficiently monitored through the user dashboard. Courses are now available in nine languages – English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Greek, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese – which, in addition to increasing the Academy’s global reach, supports customers employing an international workforce.
All courses have been assessed and are accredited by the CPD Certification Service and the platform exhibits powerful reporting capabilities which can be used for compliance/audit. Inbuilt flexibility allows corporate users to manage and deploy their own training courses from the same platform.
