Making TagEvac Covid secure and ‘Viirro protected’

Jun 11, 2021, Product Update

It seems quite ridiculous to think that prior to 2020, many of us touched surfaces in buildings and public places without much thought about how we might be both becoming contaminated and spreading  infection. But we did.  

And even now with a new government enforced awareness about good hand hygiene, in the wake of an evacuation hygiene will (understandably) not be front of mind. Since the beginning of the pandemic, TagEvac® have been thinking about this problem and have carefully considered the impact of Covid-19 on the products they supply. Viirro provides an innovative solution to protect the system’s main touch-points from contamination to ensure that even in the event of an emergency, protection from COVID-19 and other viruses is standard.

Introducing Viirro 

Emergency evacuation leaders, TagEvac® have used their extensive experience to create sister company Viirro, which will supply a covid secure, germ repellent anti-microbial film that can be retrofitted onto an existing TagEvac® system or if you’re investing in a new system, Viirro comes as part of your new (TagEvac®) emergency evacuation system.  

Viirro is now supplied as standard with all TagEvac® systems, providing protection from COVID-19 and other viruses, even in the event of an emergency, reassuring health & safety managers that their buildings are kept safe and operational.

Reassessing infection control policies

With all the above in mind, it comes as no surprise that organisations around the world, not just in the United Kingdom, need to reassess their infection control policies and procedures and put it to the top of their list of priorities. 

Understanding what it is, how to prevent infectious diseases from being spread, what to do when infections do spread, and how to control it are the key areas for consideration. For employers, the health and wellbeing of employees is on them and relying on common sense is not enough. 

Organisational training needs to be provided to share knowledge and communicate the practices and steps in place to prevent the spread of infection. COVID-19 aside, workplaces suffer when employees go off sick. 

A proper robust infection control policy is to ensure employees, customers, and their families are protected against infectious diseases.
