Client – Frozen Food Manufacturer
Issue – COVID-19 Infected Employee
Solution – Rapid and Thorough Office Workspace Decontamination
A suburban Chicago frozen food manufacturer faced a dilemma that is becoming all too frequent, unfortunately, due to coronavirus spread. An office employee had tested positive for COVID-19. Ownership knew that it had to respond appropriately to decontaminate the space, provide their employees with the safety and peace of mind they deserved and get the workspace back open for business as quickly as possible.
“Can you help us?” was the question. “Of course,” was our answer.
ERC Midwest immediately dispatched an expert Coronavirus decontamination project manager to meet the client’s plant manager, define the scope of the need and provide a proposal to perform the work.
Soon after, a small team of experienced technicians arrived on site in the middle of the night to perform the decontamination work. After suiting up in the necessary Personal Protective Equipment, PPE, which included a hooded Tyvek coverall, rubber boots and a full faced respirator, the team performed a 2-step decontamination process.
In step 1, they hand wiped all heavily trafficked and touched areas like doorknobs, desks, tables and computers. In step 2, the team used specially designed electrostatic sprayers to apply a chemical proven to envelop and quickly kill coronavirus. The sprayers atomize the chemical so that it dries fast and leaves behind no residue.
Before the sun rose, the ERC Midwest team completed the decontamination process and the office space was safe and ready to be re-opened to the client’s employees.
The CEO shared that our team earned “rave reviews” for their performance.
We were proud to be the guide that helped this client achieve its goals.
Another complex waste problem solved. Happy Client!
