As part of Rentokil Initial, it’s our mission to protect people and enhance lives. As the coronavirus pandemic impacts countries all around the world, we’ve been disinfecting premises to help organisations protect their people from COVID-19.
Businesses have been impacted by the coronavirus crisis in many ways. Those providing essential services have continued to operate, but under difficult conditions and with rapidly changing requirements for working practices and for the safety of their employees and customers.
Transport plays an essential role in the economy for moving people and goods. Lockdowns in many countries around the world have resulted in drastic reductions in economic activity and the use of all types of vehicle for work, public transport, aviation, vehicles delivering goods and also private vehicles.
As countries around the world are moving through different phases of the COVID-19 infection, businesses and organisations need to protect their staff, customers, buildings, machinery, equipment and goods from the risks of infection and contamination.
Many countries have responded to the coronavirus outbreak by enforcing a lockdown to break the chain of infection and reduce its spread to avoid overwhelming health services.
During the coronavirus crisis, disinfection is one of the most important measures for keeping businesses and services safe from infectious pathogens.
