HOW TO PREVENT SICKNESS DOWNTIME IN YOUR WORKPLACE


Towards the end of 2017 we partnered with HygienEco Washrooms Limited, a UK distributed for a range of air purification products called AirSteril.

These amazingly innovative devises are a cost-effective solution to eliminating offensive odour and preventing the spread of illness and infection within your work space, whether it be an office, school, medical centre or any type of public access space.

They don’t need to be limited to your washroom area as their smart design would work equally well in canteens, receptions, waiting rooms or offices.

THE THREAT The number of flu-related hospital admissions in the UK has tripled in a week, with one in four of those patients suffering from the deadliest strain, Australian flu. Aussie flu or H3N2 is one of the strains of flu circulating this year and caused havoc in Australia over their winter as one of the ‘worst flu seasons they had faced in decades’.

According to The Telegraph The latest statistics suggest around 4.5 million people in England are suffering "influenza-like symptoms".

Last week, 24 people died from flu in the UK. According to Public Health England, the total number of those with flu in hospital has risen from 1,280 to 3,750 in a week, a 2.9-fold rise. In 8 hours, a single bacteria cell could multiply to over 16.7 million.

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES In the midst of one of the worse flu seasons we’ve seen in recent years employers are having to look at securing better preventative measures.

A recent study has shown that average sickness absence per employee in the UK stands at almost 6 days each year, which costs the GB economy around £16 billion! AirSteril technology could bring about significant savings if applied to all workplaces and commercial premises, as well as improving the health and well-being of the users.

By improving the air quality in enclosed spaces, you can offer your staff and visitors a healthier environment in which to frequent. Cleaning alone will not remove odours and the causes of odours - bacteria, viruses, mould, fungi and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in the air and on surfaces. That’s why we recommend the AirSteril system to all our clients.
