The new normal: Getting back to work safely and confidently

On 10 May 2020 the UK Government began to outline its plans to enable certain sectors in England to return back to work, while the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have started releasing their own plans for getting businesses up and running again.

While employees who can operate from home are advised to continue to do so, official guidance on the government’s plans for returning to the workplace have continued to emerge,  prompting businesses across all sectors to start to put in place “back to work” guidance and policies.

Whilst there is currently sector specific guidance across a number of industries, businesses in all sectors are beginning to scope out a “new normal”.


For businesses, what does this mean?

Even last week, Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab, has said social distancing measures are set to remain in place for “some time”. For businesses this could mean the possibility of shift patterns, changing of factory floor layouts, longer retail queues to manage the flow of customers, use of PPE in the workplace, and restricted access to toilets.

The most significant practice that will enable reduction in spread and has been promoted since the very start of the pandemic is a continued focus on hygiene practices (washing hands frequently) and infection control management across all people, in all kinds of businesses and environments.


But what does good hygiene practice and infection control look like?

There has been a plethora of new brands and products entering the market since the start of the pandemic. Some of which just do not work, are not effective against COVID-19, are illegal, not suitable for the environments for which they are being promoted or that can be toxic to humans if not used correctly.

Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) is a little-known miracle. Our HOCL products are proven to kill 99.9999% of viruses and bacteria and can be used on any surface, including on skin as a hand sanitiser. HOCL is also fast – very fast. Many typical disinfectants that are being touted online only start working on viruses and bacteria after 10 minutes of contact. Our hypochlorous acid works in seconds – just what busy offices, factories, schools, care homes and hospitality venues need. And as it can be used as a liquid, spray or fogging mist the potential really is endless.

Infection control doesn’t have to be as scary as it sounds. It just needs the right product, a consistent and robust regime and all staff to be on board.
