SafeGroup, the independent emergency soft FM service provider, has launched a Covid-19 disinfection and testing service to support businesses as they seek to return to work safely and smoothly.
The three-step process involves a premises deep clean and a Covid-19 (Coronavirus) treat and protect service. It also includes, for the first time, Covid-19 testing of treated surfaces to allay the predicted fears of staff and customers as they return to business premises.
SafeGroup chief executive officer Steve Broughton said: "Our Covid-19 Back to Business Clean and Safe service is a comprehensive cleaning and disinfection response to the major challenges facing businesses as they leave lockdown and reopen their premises.
"They recognise they have a duty of care to ensure their workplaces are safe and clean. They are having to address the very real wellbeing and mental health concerns of their employees and customers.
"They also want their workplace to have long-term protection against Covid-19 so staff and customers have peace of mind over the weeks to come. Our Back to Business Clean and Safe service delivers all three.
During the pandemic, SafeGroup has provided Covid-19 decontamination services for a wide range of businesses, including facilities management providers, hospitals, care homes, schools and manufacturers.
The service is tailored to deliver a complete package of technically advanced cleaning and disinfection services to support businesses as the government seeks to phase out of the Covid-19 lockdown.
SafeGroup has designed its service around feedback from customers as they develop plans to leave lockdown and strategies to operate in a post-Covid-19 business environment where expectations about workplace hygiene standards are likely to be greatly raised.
SafeGroup sales director Chris Macdonald said: "Covid-19 has reframed the response to workplace cleanliness. Our discussions with businesses tell us that they see making sure employees having confidence in workplace hygiene standards as being a critical priority as the Covid-19 lockdown is phased out.
"This is a key reason why we're offering the Covid-19 testing service and why it has been enthusiastically welcomed by customers. It gives businesses scientific evidence that workplaces are Covid-19-free. Combined with the long-lasting effectiveness of our disinfection treatment, staff can be confident everything is being done to keep them safe."
The service is also ideal for service organisations that have been working hard to protect against Covid-19 throughout the pandemic, said the company.
