‘Is it safe?’ millions of office workers ask, as they prepare to re-enter workplaces worldwide. The corona pandemic has increased demand for hygienic workplaces, says global work experience and facility management company ISS. This is why ISS has launched a new disinfection and hygiene solution, Pure Space.
“We developed Pure Space with our scientific knowledge of large-scale cleaning, disinfection and workplace experience. The product was ready within a few weeks, utilising our experts from the world over. The ISS and our people are dedicated to making our customers’ employees reconnect with the places they work in, in the aftermath of the corona pandemic,” says ISS Group COO, Troels Bjerg.
‘Pure Space’ works by analyzing all traffic and touchpoints, identifying high-touch surfaces and tailors a suitable hygiene plan for that environment.It ensures that high-touch areas remain safe for hours after they have been disinfected.
PURE SPACE validates the outcome of the disinfection process. It uses ATP technology to scientifically measure the outcome of the cleaning. ATP stands for Adenosine triphosphate, a molecule found only in and around living cells, and can, therefore, be used to measure the concentration of microorganisms and the level of hygiene.
Pure Space is effective as it implements proven methods to eliminate all sources of infection on surfaces. It has been verified by the third-party verifier, Norske Veritas. Research indicates that a virus applied to a high-contact surface, such as a doorknob or a tabletop, can infect 40-60 per cent of the workplace employees within two to four hours.
Aksh Rohatgi, CEO of ISS Facility Services India, agrees, “Pure Space is a fantastic product that provides much-needed reassurance, enabling the people to feel relaxed and achieve their purpose within a hygienic environment. The entire process, combined with right individual behaviour, will have a powerful impact on curbing contamination and also provides accurate testing and monitoring of results for real-time feedback on cleaning efficacy.”
