Coronavirus (COVID-19) Decontamination
Immediate action – call 01207 594 921
As coronavirus continues to spread worldwide, measures must be taken to disinfect any surfaces that have come into contact with someone carrying the virus. Social distancing is now required across the UK but with some employees, including key workers, unable to work from home, necessary precautions must be taken to help keep these workplaces safe.
If your office, facility, worksite, vehicles, plant or equipment require decontamination over and above usual cleaning practices, for example where there is a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case, RSK Response can provide a professional decontamination service to allow ongoing occupancy and continued business operations.
We have assembled regional decontamination teams and can provide rapid response, providing reassurance through a thorough understanding of viral decontamination and the latest cleaning technology to combat this threat.
What to do if you have a suspected COVID-19 case in the workplace
Call 01207 594 921
If you require decontamination within the workplace you should contact our response hotline as soon as possible. A COVID-19 incident advisor will take preliminary information including your contact details and information about the affected area. We advise that any affected area be cordoned off as soon as possible until the areas have been cleaned and disinfected. This may be an individual workstation and immediate area (within 2m) vicinity, or a site cabin or vehicle.
A regional COVID-19 response team will contact you to discuss the requirements in detail and determine the cleaning need and urgency. The specific requirements for each office, facility or worksite will differ and our response team will work with you to determine the best approach.
A copy of our Decontamination Method Statement and Risk Assessment will be provided before work commences.
We will mobilise a team of at least two people to attend the site and carry out the decontamination. Depending on your requirements this can involve disinfecting all surfaces within a workspace and, if required, application of a fogging solution to kill the virus and provide ongoing protection for up to 30 days.
All cleaning materials will be double bagged and removed from your premises/site for appropriate disposal.
Coronavirus is an issue that will affect everyone; therefore, we all need to take necessary precautions to help keep our workplaces as safe as possible.
