Ecolab Science Certified is a comprehensive, science-based program designed to help keep your employees and customers safe and give them the confidence that your operations are committed to the highest cleaning and disinfecting practices.
Now more than ever, consumers are looking for visible commitments to clean and safe environments, evidence of hygiene best practices and independent audit verification.
Ecolab has helped make the world cleaner, safer and healthier in partnership with the world’s largest hospitality and foodservice brands. Now we’ve developed the Ecolab Science Certified seal, enabling hospitality and food service operators to demonstrate their commitment to advancing cleaner, safer practices by meeting the program’s rigorous criteria.
How Does it Work?
The Ecolab Science Certified program combines advanced chemistry, protocols and procedures, with rigorous training and an Ecolab Science Certified audit verification to deliver a comprehensive solution for public health and food safety. Companies that complete meet the program’s criteria earn the ability to display the Ecolab Science Certified seal to help customers and guests see and believe clean.
The program was developed in response to research showing that consumers feel safer when hotels and restaurants raise their cleaning protocols to include hospital-grade disinfectants and third-party audits. Hotel guests said they feel “extremely safe” knowing a hotel room is cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectants compared to leading consumer brands1. In addition, 66% of foodservice customers said they feel “extremely” or “very safe” knowing a restaurant is cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectants1.
The research also found that consumers feel safer knowing cleaning and disinfecting practices in a hotel or restaurant are verified by an external, independent auditor* with cleaning expertise – particularly one with expertise cleaning and disinfecting hospitals.
