Insufficient hygiene control
With lockdown measures easing across the UK and businesses having a phased reopening, Liam Peskett, Sales Director of Safe Fire Direct, knew that hygiene safety was a priority.
“We wanted to make the premises COVID-secure for staff who are coming into work,” he says. “One element of this was improving hygiene measures and reducing cross-contamination, especially in areas that are used often.”
“We’ve worked with Fireco for a number of years as we sell their products in our trade stores. They contacted us about stocking one of their new hygiene products and we knew this would be the perfect fit for our own office.”
When presented with our products, Liam chose our Germgard System and had one fitted by the staff entrance to promote the use of hand sanitiser.
Germgard is a Smart Sanitising System, conceived to promote effective hygiene practices to building users. It uses digital signage to capture users’ attention and alerts them to sanitise their hands before gaining entry.
“What I love about the Germgard System is it catches the eye and alerts people to sanitise their hands before coming in,” says Liam. “It reinforces the hygiene habit and helps people feel much safer about coming into work. You could say it’s become part of the team.”
The Germgard System has quickly proved its worth to both staff and visitors of Safe Fire Direct. According to Liam, “When the Health and Safety Executive arrived to check the premises, they were really impressed with our new Germgard as it was a clear and visual indication of our Covid-secure strategy.”
Liam continues, “Fireco have been brilliant to work with and are always happy to help. Germgard has really helped us feel safer at work and we’re glad we can help our customers feel the same when they come to us for hygiene products.”
