COVID-19 Business Solutions

Managing a safe return to the workplace

We recognise that re-establishing a business to its pre COVID levels will take time. It will also involve new ways of working as we find a new normal. For this reason, Enva is committed to providing the flexibility that companies need to restart operations whilst still managing their waste in an environmentally sustainable and cost-effective manner. 

Whilst all businesses should adhere to local and sector specific requirements and advice, there are certain fundamentals that should feature in any organisation’s planning for a safe return to work and then on an ongoing basis.

COVID-19 business solutions helping businesses across a range of sectors return to work safely as the lockdown measures are eased;

A full risk assessment should be carried out for all workplaces and facilities that have been closed for an extended period of time. This must address the specific risks associated with COVID-19 as well as general health and wellbeing.

It is important that alongside social distancing advice, workplaces and common spaces are deep cleaned prior to people returning and that enhanced cleaning should happen regularly to help prevent further outbreaks occurring.

There should be frequent cleaning of objects and surfaces that are touched regularly such as keyboards, control panels, door handles and tools. Hand sanitisers should be provided in multiple locations, in addition to washrooms. Increased provision of waste facilities and more frequent waste collection services are also recommended. More specialised waste services may also be needed for certain waste streams such as PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and other COVID-19 waste.

If there is a suspected case of COVID-19, surfaces potentially infected by a symptomatic person must be cleaned and disinfected using either a combined detergent disinfectant solution at a dilution of 1,000 parts per million available chlorine or a ‘household’ detergent followed by separate disinfectant (1000 ppm

Enva’s industrial disinfection service utilises mobile mist spraying equipment and our ECOSAN disinfectant product to sanitise large workspaces or travel environments such as: public transport, offices, factories, shops & retail outlets, call centres, schools, public buildings, vehicles & vehicle cabs, planes and other hard to reach areas.

Commercial disinfection can be deployed as a one-off service prior to people returning to work or on a regular basis in high transit environments such as public transport or airlines.

Enva can also provide a fully managed street disinfection service. Disinfecting streets and other public areas kills the COVID-19 virus when present on surfaces. This reduces the opportunity for infection and breaks any existing infection chain.

Large scale disinfection also reassures residents and business owners that every effort is being taken to protect themselves and their communities.

Increasing the frequency of waste collection services plays an important role in keeping workspaces clean and safe.  In addition to its general waste and recycling services, Enva is also able to provide a solution for the safe and secure collection, transport and treatment of material that is potentially contaminated with COVID-19. All waste will be processed by appropriately licenced and regulated facilities.

Some of the ways we are able to help ensure our customers adhere to Government advice, whilst providing the flexibility needed to restart operations include:  

  • Review of onsite waste facilities to ensure there is ample capacity and waste levels are kept to a minimum 
  • Optimise collection schedules to control costs and ensure waste is regularly removed from site and does not build up  
  • Provide specialist waste services for PPE or waste that may have potentially been contaminated by COVID-19
