Hand hygiene has never been more important. Accessibility to both staff and students to hand sanitisers and hand washing solutions is crucial to reduce the risk of touch transmission. 


The world is facing an indoor air pollution crisis. The pandemic has only heightened the issue. 

As students spend a significant amount of their day indoors, tackling indoor air pollution should be considered a critical hygiene responsibility. From VOCs to chemicals, viral aerosols to bacterias, it is imperative to shine a strong lens on the need to support natural ventilation with mechanical solutions that can help to clean and decontaminate the air, particularly during times of heightened risk of transmission or, where natural ventilation is not possible (in Winter, or during bushfire season for example).

Washroom hygiene

There is an expectation that  more diligence on best practice hygiene standards is in place.  It is expected that more scrutiny will be placed on just how clean and hygienic the washroom environment is - especially facilities provided for staff and students.  From odour control sanitary bins to HEPA based air dryers, create a reassuring experience by ensuring that your washrooms do not compromise the perceived hygiene standards in place in your school or college.

Sharps waste removal

It is an unfortunate fact that students or staff may suffer from illnesses that require administration of medication intravenously (e.g. diabetics or those at risk of anaphylaxis). The responsible and safe collection of sharps reduces risk of injury or harm and the disposal of such waste is handled in line with local legislation.
