The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) has announced the accreditation of Rentokil Initial's in-company training course 'Hygiene within our environment'.

Rentokil Initial is one of the largest business service companies in the world, operating in all the major economies of Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and Africa. Its workforce is some 66,000 strong, providing a range of services in over 60 countries. Rentokil Initial's training programme provides front line staff with hygiene awareness and practical knowledge for risk mitigation of microbes' spread and transmission of disease.
RSPH chief executive, Shirley Cramer CBE, said: “I would like to congratulate Rentokil Initial for their commitment to the promotion of the highest hygiene standards, ensuring that staff and customers receive an excellent service.”

As part of the RSPH accreditation process, the 'Hygiene within our environment' course underwent an assessment that involved a review of the planned objectives and outcomes of the programme, the content, mode of delivery and the technical content related to hygiene awareness.

Mark Reader, global hygiene category director, Rentokil Initial, said: “We believe that hygiene expertise can add considerable value to business and public institutions. We are delighted that our training programme has gained RSPH accreditation, demonstrating our commitment to raising hygiene standards.”
