You visit this Product News space to learn about the latest features of our Alchemy products and new training courses. Even better than reading about our products is using them to drive efficiencies in training management and to improve employee engagement and safety.
With the number of Playbook clients growing quickly, that brings us even more user feedback to fuel our product development. This quarter we are excited to introduce several new features, including two highly requested ones.
As the food industry changes, Intertek Alchemy moves in stride with it. Recent industry developments prompted several changes to our offerings in food safety courses and other changes were driven by our desire for continuous improvement to better serve our clients. All of the courses here are part of the standard Alchemy catalog and are now available in your library.
With the ongoing labor challenges in manufacturing, a multi-cultural workforce is a necessary reality, which is why we supply multi-lingual courses as well as course translation capability. To help you easily meet more training needs of your diverse facility, we are developing a new Vietnamese Training Library, available to add to your Alchemy catalog.
Intertek Alchemy strives to improve training for workers and to make the process easier for training administrators. Enhanced reporting capabilities and timely email notifications for learners are new features in Alchemy Manager to help training administrators meet their KPIs.
We’re happy to deliver four new training courses covering our most requested topics. These courses will help your workforce prevent, mitigate, respond, and recover from critical emergencies, as well as maneuver everyday hazards safely.

The ability to measure and track your organization’s food safety culture is transitioning from nice-to-have to must-have. GFSI scheme owners (SQF, BRCGS, etc.) are now incorporating food safety culture measurements as part of audit requirements. And government regulatory agencies are not far behind.
Intertek Alchemy has developed an array of solutions to help our clients sustain a mature food safety culture throughout their organization — and meet audit requirements.
We have updated all SQF observations in Alchemy Coach to align with SQF Code Edition 9. The SQF Code Edition 9 implementation date is May 24, 2021. These updated observations will help better prepare you and your employees for a successful audit on the new Code requirements.
OSHA, FDA, and CDC have recommended all worksites appoint a qualified workplace coordinator to develop and manage crisis management and business continuity programs. The objective is to be prepared for emergencies such as COVID-19 when they arise.
