Critical Business Needs

 

Solutions Designed For Education

Each day, over 55 million students and 7 million staff attend the more than 130,000 public schools and private schools in the United States alone. On average, they each miss about 5 days per year due to illness, totaling to 285 million school days lost. With studies showing that chronically absent students are 7.4 time more likely to drop out of school, and absent teachers costing schools more than $25 billion annually, it's essential to invest in proven, reliable products.

That's why Diversey continues to develop solutions for K-12 and Higher Education that address key issues in healthy and hygiene in our schools.

Operational Efficiency

Facility Services is a competitive business and only the most efficient can thrive. Our integrated portfolio of solutions is designed to use less, waste less and cost less. We look at the entire cost of cleaning from labour to supplies, quality and capital. Every step of the way we help make your operations leaner, greener and more cost efficient.

 

Infection Prevention in Schools

The risk of pathogens infecting the general public is an ever present and serious threat. As pathogens are always evolving, it’s not always clear where the risks are and how to mitigate their threat. In educational facilities, preventing disease transmission is an important part of good facility management. Typically, fewer infection prevention resources are available and there is less access to infection prevention training and education.

Schools are havens for pathogens like Flu, Norovirus and Rhinovirus which can all spread quickly, without advance warning through a school population leading to illness and high absenteeism. Effective cleaning and disinfecting practices help eliminate reservoirs of disease which decreases the risk of transmission. Breaking the chain of infection by disinfecting surfaces is essential in preventing outbreaks and providing a safe, secure environment for students, guests and staff.

 

Indoor Air Quality

Working with GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI), we looked beyond products and designed a cleaning system that promotes good Indoor Air Quality. Indoor Air Quality is one of the most important environmental issues in our lives today. Diseases linked to Indoor Air Quality include asthma, allergies and lung disease. That is why we developed the Healthy High Performance Cleaning (HHPC) program. GEI evaluated our HHPC program using their stringent GREENGUARD Gold Certification criteria to measure the effect of cleaning on Indoor Air Quality. Diversey is the first company to have a cleaning system certified for Indoor Air Quality.
