Hygienisation and disinfection of facilities and fleet in the fight against Covid-19

29 / 10 / 2020

Following its Contingency Plan as the strategic reference for the fight against the pandemic, Patinter proceeds with the hygiene and disinfection of spaces (facilities and fleet) as a measure to limit the spread of the virus.

At Patinter, in addition to the implementation of all the standards imposed by the Directorate General of Health (DGS), the company complies with the plan for hygiene and disinfection of facilities (PHDI) which effectively and constantly provides that facilities and vehicles are subjected to rigorous processes of hygiene and disinfection, as a means of preventing the spread of the Covid-19 virus and other viruses such as Influenza (common flu).

PHDI is carried out by external company employees and Patinter employees, duly trained for this purpose and which consists of the application of specific products for sanitization and disinfection including the virucide nebulization technique. With regard to the sanitization of the premises, particular attention is paid to surfaces with frequent touch such as handrails, door handles, counters, telephones, computer equipment (keyboard, mice, etc.), balusters, chairs and floors. Regarding the interior of the vehicles, at Patinter's headquarters there is a hygiene and disinfection service available whenever requested by the driver.

Independently of all the PHDI prevention procedures, Patinter has endeavoured to make its employees aware of the need to reinforce the hygiene and frequent airing of vehicle interiors during the journey, as well as the airing of workplaces in the administrative service.

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, Patinter has implemented the Contingency Plan in order to anticipate and manage the impact of this pandemic situation, with the aim of protecting the health and safety of its employees and customers, as well as reducing the negative impact on the economy and society by ensuring that the company's activity contributes to the maintenance of the essential services of society during the pandemic.
