The importance of environmental and surface cleaning has never been more relevant given the global pandemic that has been delivered in the form of Covid-19.

The presentation will discuss what has changed and provide guidelines for the planning and development of robust environmental and hard surface cleaning plans. It will review the key elements of a cleaning program, cover employee, patient and public protection, Cleaning Regime development, technique, chemical and equipment for cleaning and disinfection and the relative considerations for application.

Considerations for the development of a cleaning schedule, differences for minimal touch and hi touch surfaces, methods and product selection and recommended best practices for every day.

Finally, it will outline additional considerations for terminal cleaning when required and how these could be applied.
