The biggest challenge for companies highlighted by the transport industry is creating peace of mind for the user and providing a safe work environment for staff. Whilst passenger numbers on ‘planes, trains and automobiles’ have dwindled, the risk of infection remains.
Major organisations across a wide spectrum of industries have taken positive steps to create safer environments with a proactive approach to cleaning. Updated policies, increased cleaning schedules and more importantly the introduction of more effective products as a preventive measure.
