Veolia has introduced a Covid-19 disinfection service targeted at businesses that need disinfection prior to reopening after lockdown.

The new service has been developed in compliance with the latest UK Public Health Guidelines on infection control and aims at combating the health and safety risks associated with confirmed and suspected cases of Covid-19.

It will make use of Defra-approved biocides and virocides.

Veolia is able to disinfect a wide range of sites, including corporate offices, control rooms, laboratories, food retailers, warehousing and distribution, public spaces, and transport and commercial vehicles.

The resource management company can also disinfect air space and hard-to-reach areas using ultra-low-volume fogging units, which keep property free from damage during cleaning.

The service also guarantees the safe disposal of any potentially virus-contaminated waste streams, which will be processed in Environment Agency-approved clinical waste treatment facilities.

Veolia guarantees a response to incidents 24 hours a day through a call centre.

The centre deploys staff, equipment, and vehicles which are on standby at six strategically located depots across the country.

Richard Kirkman, head of Covid-19 response and chief technology and innovation officer at Veolia, said: “With the pandemic posing a significant risk to health, Veolia is supporting the national effort to defeat this virus.

“Our new services are based on our years of expertise dealing with hazardous environments, and can now give the reassurance and peace of mind that the virus will be eradicated.

“This in turn will help businesses and other organisations ensure the safety of their employees and customers, as they seek to return to normal business operations.”
