A NEW Decontamination Service launched by SWGR has enjoyed significant uptake in its infancy as the UK gets ready for the next phases of lockdown restrictions easing.

The Glasgow-based firm has created the new specialism, combining industry experts with proven equipment, in response to the pandemic and the challenges that has brought for firms across sectors.

In May, the first full month the new service was operational, SWGR’s team was appointed by a major UK construction business in London.

The service sees trained and protected staff access sites out with shift patterns, using a fogging technique to eliminate viruses, germs and bad bacteria from surfaces. This mitigation approach focuses on touch points and includes all electrical appliances to which there is no risk due to the density of the mist.

Terry Flynn, managing director of SWGR, said: “SWGR has a 30-year track record of helping businesses and their people enjoy success. This new Decontamination Service is designed to help them meet the very particular challenges and demands of the present day.

“Led by Neil McNaughton, the new service was busy immediately with the team deployed to assist on site at one of the biggest construction projects in the UK. As demand for the service grows, we will continue to invest in both the specialist personnel and equipment required to guarantee we deliver and give businesses the confidence they need as they gradually reopen through the phases of unlock.”
