Winter ready

Last updated: 22nd November 2021

This winter, the measures you need to create a safe environment for employees are different than ever before. Not only do you need to consider the usual winter issues of maintenance and risks of slips and falls, there’s the real and serious risk of COVID-19. And as more people return back into the workplaces, the pressure is on to make sure employees stay safe.

Nobody really knows the path COVID-19 will take this winter but what we do know is that its ability to spread is tenacious and disruptive. Not only is COVID-19 contagious by physical touch and the droplets we expel when we cough and speak, the WHO reports it spreads through the air, with infected airborne particles remaining suspended in indoor spaces and travelling around a room. This means even if you practice social distancing and hand washing, you can catch COVID-19 indoors simply by breathing.

However, phs is by your side to support the fight against COVID-19. Through phs, you can source air purifiers scientifically proven to eliminate COVID-19 from the air while our air purification systems eliminates COVID-19 in washrooms. Our hand-sanitising stations are touch free to reduce the risk of cross contamination while our SteriHandle door handles kills bacteria in less than one second.
