Ensure that your workplace is fully clean and ready to reopen

  • Assess the site following closure before restarting work.
  • Complete disinfection before employees return to the workplace.
  • Check or service ventilation systems to ensure everything is operating efficiently.
  • Flush water systems due to pipes being unused or underused for a longer period of time.
