It happens, and you know it. Always at the worst time. Somebody goes down with a bug, their whole department follows – and suddenly you’re losing business hand over fist.
So what’s it going to cost? Thousands? Millions? How many tight-deadline jobs have you got riding on that team? And how about the penalty clauses?
Yeah, well – you bite the bullet because you have to. Fact of life, right? People get sick, it’s that time of year, you were just unlucky.
Getting sick is NOT the norm
Actually, no. A lot of the time it’s preventable.
And you’re not unlucky, just in the dark about how to prevent sickness most of the time. Unaware you could save thousands, avoiding sick pay and enforced downtime costs – simply by deploying the right health protection.
Makes you mad though, doesn’t it? Mad and helpless.
How can you let one tiny microbe – so small you can’t even see it – cause an on-the-ball, successful organisation like yours into a tight financial squeeze, when you should be raking in the pounds?
Well the good news is, you’re not entirely helpless.
You can’t stop a sickness that somebody brings in from outside. But you CAN minimise its effect – and reduce the chances of staff cross-infecting each other.
Sterilise and save
All it needs is to sterilise your place so no germs can survive. Generate a zero threshold so that staff walk in tomorrow morning to a GERM-FREE environment. No viruses, no bacteria, no mould, no fungi – right throughout their workplace. No more losing business either
It’s easily done too. And quick.
Wheel in a Hypersteriliser and you’re looking at around 40 minutes to make the average room safe and secure.
It works by misting up the place with a mild, 6% preparation of hydrogen peroxide, the same germ-fighter our own bodies produce, but ionised to boost performance.
The ionising does three things:
- Causes the stuff to disperse rapidly in all directions. Electrostatically charged so it tries to get away from itself. Spreading right throughout the empty air in the room. Fetching hard up against all surfaces, behind and underneath them. Penetrating deep into cracks.
- Makes the stuff work like a magnet against germs. Its static charge reaching out to grab oppositely charged viruses and bacteria, clutching them in a vice grip.
- Triggers the release of other antimicrobials in addition to hydrogen peroxide. Hydroxyl radicals, oxygen species, nitrogen species, ozone and ultraviolet – every one an efficient germ-killer.
The killing is done by oxygen. Storming atoms of it released on contact that rip apart germ cells and send them to oblivion. All that’s left is oxygen and water, in such small quantities it evaporates before it touches anything.
Germs down, margins up
99,9999% of ALL germs destroyed. A Sterility Assurance Level of Log 6. Your workplace is a desert – devoid of germs, pathogens, bugs or whatever you like to call them.
Of course when your staff breeze in next morning with their flat whites and Danishes, they’ll bring all their usual germs with them. Because each of us has our own germ cloud in tow all the time. And yes, one of them could transfer some germs to others.
Except that happens all the time, especially on the bus or tube on the way to work. And our immune systems just take it in their stride. Same old, same old, everyday stuff. No problem.
And in the zero threshold of your newly sterile workplace, any incoming germs have to work from scratch to repopulate the place – not add to the teeming billions still there from the last several days. Who’s losing business to sickness now?
But what if…
Yeah, OK. So your top sales performer comes back from Dubai with a first class case of MERS. If you haven’t packed her off to bed for a few days quarantine, there’s still less chance for her germs to spread because the threshold is low.
And any lingering possibilities will be zapped by the nightly mist-up anyway. Back to zero in the morning – less exposure, less risk. Still less chance of losing business.
Sure people get sick for all kinds of reasons. You’ve just never thought about it before. Or about the money you’re losing without thinking about it either.
But now people don’t need to get sick. Not on your watch. And not in your workplace.
Not when you can chop a whole load of costs to nothing by protecting their health.
