Ecolab is offering a raft of COVID-19 assessment and training programs to help restaurants protect their employees and guests, and get back to safe and profitable operations.
The programs are offered through EcoSure and Lobster Ink, divisions of the company focused on food safety and public health.
The Coronavirus Training and Assessment Program is designed to help prepare and protect front-line employees. The program includes a COVID-19 response readiness assessment of risks and best practices and onsite training that provides practical guidance for COVID-19 prevention and remediation.
The High-Risk Assessment Program is meant to reinforce best practices, mitigate food safety and public health risks, and protect employees and guests. For areas where onsite assessment is not practical, EcoSure also provides a Virtual Training and Assessment solution, which is guided remotely by an EcoSure food safety and public health expert.
The Takeout & Delivery Assessment Program is focused on all aspects of takeout and delivery, including cleaning and sanitation, food integrity, packing and storage and third-party delivery.
“These training and assessment solutions will help food service operators proactively manage their current operational challenges while preparing for the future,” said Bob Sherwood, Ecolab executive vice-president for food safety and public health.
Ecolab’s Lobster Ink business is offering the Essential Rebound Training Program, which provides concise online training for line-level staff and managers, including hand hygiene, sanitizing and disinfecting, time and temperature control and protocols to prevent cross-contamination.
For hotels and full-service restaurants, the program also includes training on revenue-generating skills and lessons on manager motivational strategies. The training content is designed to refresh and reinforce essential behaviours, and the program also provides management with a record of employees who have completed the training.
Ecolab specializes in water, hygiene and infection prevention products and services.
