This Week's News
Clean Air Day, being marked today, is an opportunity to improve public understanding of air pollution, build awareness of how air pollution affects our health and explain the actions we can all take to tackle air pollution, helping to protect the environment and our health.
See the short (90 second) animated video explainer on the British Safety Council's Time to Breathe campaign, which is calling for outdoor workers, such as street cleaners and refuse workers, to be protected from the dangers of air pollution. The video makes clear why reducing exposure to toxic air has never been so urgent.
Throughout 2021, the American Cleaning Institute has focused significantly on enhancing ‘critical’ regulatory connections with the new leadership to ensure the ACI is out in front on priority policy issues impacting the cleaning product supply chain - including letting Joe Biden's team know, on the new President’s first day in office, of the industry's top priorities.
Speaking at her State of the Association address at ACI's Mid-Year Meeting, Melissa Hockstad, ACI president & CEO, said:
Unsafe food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemical substances causes more than 200 diseases - ranging from diarrhoea to cancers. Every year an estimated 600 million people fall ill from contaminated food, resulting in 420,000 deaths and $110b in productivity lost.
The short efficiency period of traditional sanitisers (such as chlorine) used on food production surfaces is a major weakness in the food sanitisation process, as the sanitisers regularly need to be reapplied to the contaminated surfaces.
As businesses reopen after lockdown with an increased focus on cleanliness and hygiene, two Swansea-based businesses have teamed up to help business owners be confident they are creating safe spaces for staff and customers.
eRAYS is a new franchise headquartered in Swansea, which carries out disinfection of business premises using state-of-the-art UV-C disinfection robots. It also provides its customers with expert advice on how to keep spaces safe and hygienic.
The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association tells us it is delighted to welcome the Socius Network into the Association. The Network was welcomed on board after each of its 18 members successfully passed the initial audit conducted by the CHSA's Independent Inspector.
The Socius Network is an association of well-respected and established independent distributors of non-food consumables to the foodservice industry. The Network was founded in April 2008. Between them, its members have over 25 locations covering the UK, Ireland and the Channel Islands.
The two-stage steam and fogging process has proven efficacy against the various strains of Coronavirus, many other types of virus and bacteria, making it an effective weapon in the fight against infections and cross contamination.
Going to the toilet, washing our hands - these are daily routines that we easily take for granted. For most of us, sanitary facilities with clean water are a matter of course, but many across the globe are facing a different situation.
Two billion people lack basic sanitation, 673 million practice open defecation regularly and 40% of the world's population do not have access to handwashing facilities and soap at home.
Students at the University of Glasgow can rest assured that safety is a top priority as the campus signs a new deal with Scotland-based cleaning service provider, Perfect Clean. With a three-year contract, the cleaning works will ensure complete student safety across all living spaces, common areas and bathrooms, including entrance halls and staircases where footfall is high.
Perfect Clean is set to begin work on June 1st for the current 2020-2021 students returning to onsite accommodation.

Recent UK News
Conwy-based Cleaner Care has grown to become one of the leading independent cleaning firms in the country. Managing Director Denise Lardner has just celebrated a sweet 16 years in the sector, having launched the company in 2005.
The move comes on the back of notably high demand for assistance with stain removal, says the company.
The BCC's research report for 2021 gives a highly-detailed picture of the sector. The latest, revised figures show that the industry contributed £55.5 billion to the UK economy in 2018 - a slight rise on previous figures - with turnover soaring in a sector with tens of thousands of businesses.
