Why Risk A Flu Epidemic At Work?


Studies have shown that airborne germs such as flu and norovirus spread quicker in washrooms than anywhere else, resulting in it being one of the most common reasons for sickness in the workplace. However, to try and tackle this the Sterillo Hand Dryer and Sterillo Uno sanitiser have been developed.

Kill viruses in the workplace

It’s a well-known fact that infections such as the flu that are caused by viruses can last for weeks on surfaces such as door handles and taps, so it’s essential that employers put processes in place to eliminate them at the root cause. By installing one of the Sterillo models in a washroom, it has the ability to kill 99.96%* of germs which could help prevent the next flu or norovirus epidemic at work.

They can kill most bacteria, viruses and mould from the air and surrounding areas via its:

  • Germicidal Irradiation: This kills mirco-organisms by disrupting their DNA and prevents them from reproducing.
  • Dual Waveband UV: This transforms oxygen into a reactive state. Within this process, Superoxide Ions and Hydroxyl Radicals are produced. The Superoxide Ions electrically charge the air contaminates which causes them to form clusters and remove the air and aid other processes.
  • Triatomic Oxygen (Ozone): This is produced in a catalyst in the lamp and eliminates bacteria and viruses in the air that passes through it.

Take a look at a report from Public Health England (an Executive Agency of the Department of Health), as it shows how the units can kill the majority of germs in two hours. It can reduce the amount of germs that are emitted into the air being inhaled or ingested via eyes, mouth and nose.

We recently installed units in The Dorchester. Their Area Purchasing Manager said ““The units have made a huge difference to the atmosphere, there are now no unpleasant odours at all.”

The Sterillo models demand better performance, have a lower energy consumption, include enhanced features and have cheap operating costs. Also, employers will notice a significant decrease in sickness rates.
