Biovate Hygienics, formed in 2022 with the aim of becoming the country’s best sustainable and carbon neutral cleaning product brand, has introduced its Biovate Training Academy to encourage industry ‘best practice’ and ensure the correct and safe use of its portfolio of products.
Chat support is available for the free online courses on an information-packed App linked to the academy with embedded support via WhatsApp and Snapchat. Learners can brush up on products by studying flashcards and watching training videos hosted by Vimeo. They can also access technical and safety data sheets. Standard industry COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) training sits beside short, sharp videos with the relevant product data in under a minute a product, followed by a short quiz.
One of the first available courses is in kitchen hygiene and modules include floor and wall degreaser product training; cleaner and sanitiser product training; how to dispense products safely, and COSHH training. Current courses are tailored to the job roles of housekeepers, chefs, back of house and kitchen porters, dishwashers, front of house and waiting staff. Once learners have successfully completed their training – which includes online quizzes – they receive a certificate from Biovate Training Academy.
The company was co-founded by experienced environmental entrepreneur Nick Winstone with a vision to adopt cutting edge innovation to deliver the next generation of biological cleaning products with the lowest environmental impact packaging. Biovate Hygienics specialises in providing a service to housekeeping, hospitality, care and general cleaning sectors.
Nick Winstone says the training academy has been launched to champion ‘best practice’ in the sector, and with an emphasis on the training being enjoyable: “The Biovate Training Academy is an ideal platform to develop a real understanding of best practice in cleaning and hygiene. We wanted to focus on making the training interactive and user-friendly and, most of all, fun.”
