Reduce absenteeism and reduce the sickness cycle

In a crucial production environment where the lights are ‘always on’ and working from home is not an option, reduction of risk of production halting is paramount. Ensuring you have an approach to hand surface air and washroom hygiene protocol can help to reduce and minimise the risk of transmission, helping to minimise significant outbreaks and reduce absenteeism on the production line.

Indoor air quality and risk

We now know that indoor air transmission presents the no. 1 risk in the spread of COVID-19, particularly the Delta variant that has been characterised by its aerosol transmission. Initial Hygiene offers a range of indoor air purification and decontamination solutions that are highly effective at cleansing the air of harmful bacterial and viral pathogens. VIRUSKILLER™ can kill 99.9999% of coronavirus in a single air pass and is suitable to use in the office space or production area, of your logistics or freight forwarding company.

Focus on high touch areas

Desks, door handles, keyboards, lift buttons, light switches are all a breeding ground for bacteria, dirt and viral spores. Regular specialist disinfection is highly recommended, especially in an industry where staff are not able to work from home and density of staff operating at any one time is high. Initial provides a fogging service that will disinfect all high touch areas using Zoono, a highly effective solution that tackles covid, influenza and other harmful nasties.
