University of Valencia hygiene certification

SPAIN – For the reopening of the Catholic University of Valencia, Betelgeux-Christeyns worked out hygiene protocols in the fight against SARS-CoV-2. The procedures will be certified by an official body and awarded a quality label. In this way, the university wants to position itself as a safe and hygienic educational environment.

The protocols determine what needs to be cleaned and disinfected inside the university and how exactly this needs to be done. For example, it describes the best way to clean stairs, elevators, corridors, classrooms, lunchrooms, toilets, offices, changing rooms and sports halls. The international quality inspection company, SGS , then checks the procedures put in place to ensure that they comply with the directives and rules of the health authorities. In the second phase, the company monitors whether all the cleaning procedures are being followed correctly in practice. Of course, the cleaning teams on site are provided with Christeyns’ detergents and disinfectants.

SGS is a world leader in inspection, verification, analysis and certification and is considered the world’s leading reference for quality and integrity. The company employs more than 94,000 people and has a network of more than 2,600 offices and laboratories worldwide.

The aim of the hygiene protocols and the collaboration with Betelgeux-Christeyns is to ensure all facilities are safe for students, lecturers and other employees of the university, in a way that classes and campus life can restart without worries.
