COVID-19 Facility Decontamination
Safety Management Systems (SMS) worked together with partners to set new standards for Viral Facility Disinfection.
SMS’s Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) has developed a system based on the CDC and World Health Organization guidance for essential and critical facility cleaning and disinfection. Our team is continuing to adapt and modify our methods to align with the most current standards set by both the CDC and the World Health Organization.
SMS is accomplished in the quality control and oversight of disinfecting essential and critical facilities. Real-time documentation is provided of the cleaning method’s effectiveness using a bioluminescence reaction to measure the Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) on a surface. The assessment of ATP levels allows for a numerical evaluation that can show the level of organic materials on a surface after pre-cleaning, which is instrumental in the disinfection of contaminated surfaces.
The same technology is used by most US hospitals and facilities across the United Kingdom and Europe. It has also been the industry standard for food and beverage processors for decades.
When using this testing methodology, after pre-cleaning but before disinfecting, our team can identify trouble areas and target the cleaning efforts on surfaces that are elevated in surface contamination. Then, we can develop a site-specific decontamination plan and set a cleanliness level goal for your facility. After the cleaning and disinfecting is complete, an in-depth report of the cleaning and disinfecting process is generated, along with the achievement of cleanliness goals for your risk management program.
With the combination of real-time documentation and our cutting-edge quality control and oversight of the disinfecting services, SMS is leading the pack of professional disinfecting consulting services. SMS can show that high-level disinfection is not only possible but measurable, proving to our clients the benefits of our comprehensive quality control and oversight of the chosen decontamination services.
