The COVID-19 pandemic has presented significant challenges to businesses and organizations, who have all had to adjust their practices to reduce the spread of coronavirus and protect workers and customers. Managers had to rethink safety practices and approaches to hazards that they hadn’t needed to consider before. Anyone who spends time in schools, hospitals, office buildings, confined spaces, and places with poor ventilation has also had to think about how long the virus lives, how it spreads, and how to best protect their health and safety as well as the people around them.
To this end, many workplaces are looking for new and improved methods of decontaminating indoor spaces, especially after a possible outbreak. To keep business running more or less, as usual, these methods need to be efficient, cost-effective, and safe enough to use regularly. Using vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP) as a disinfection and decontamination measure has become increasingly common, and while it fits the criteria many organizations are looking for, it does require some extra safety precautions. When you consider that VHP can help cut down on infections and illnesses, though, it’s probably worth the extra caution to be able to live and work as close to normal as possible.
