Key practices that are implemented can play an instrumental role in infection and hygiene control in Schools and other environments where children are taught and cared for require a unique set of deliverables to prevent infection of the COVID-19 virus and keep all those within the environment – staff and children safe.
Educational institutions are required to provide a learning environment that is stimulating intellectually, physically, and emotionally while also meeting students’ health and well-being interests. limiting risk of infection or transmission of infectious diseases, it is essential that schools understand that a deeper level of advanced cleaning is required that goes beyond surface cleaning, that targets invisible dirt as well as visible. This is achieved by using bacteria-killing formulated sanitizers and sterilizers in addition to making sanitizer stations and dispensers easily accessible.
Related to this is also instructing children on how to reduce transmission through properly using sanitizing products. It is towards this aim that we offer dedicated approved quality hygiene and sanitization products especially developed for Infection and hygiene control in schools.
Clean school Environment
The physical childcare facility environment also includes equipment and toys that must be kept hygienically clean.
● Cleaning schedules should be made available
Cleaning schedules should be drawn up according to everyday, weekly and monthly intervals that detail the specific various cleaning duties and responsibilities and the staff member responsible for having to carry them out. The educational institution should take steps to ensure their staff responsible for cleaning is adequately trained for the purpose and to monitor their efforts. It is critical that staff wear personal protective equipment (PPE) when performing these tasks and so there should always be an adequate supply available. At VirusPro we have in stock plenty of anti-bacterial wipes, hand soaps, heavy duty floor degreasers, disinfectant sprays and a range of hand sanitisers (alcohol, instant foam) and washroom and surface cleaners.
● Make health and safety information available
Education and dissemination of information to children and staff related to the importance of hygiene and sanitization should be made a priority. Guidance on how to make use of the hand sanitization dispensers, for example, provided conveniently nearby will help promote a culture of health and hygiene consciousness.
● Adhere to the practical guidance as stipulated in the ‘Health Protection in Schools and other Childcare Facilities’ regulations
