Medi-Clean Technologies Ltd help RBMUK operate safely in these challenging times

Date published: 30 September 2020

RBMUK are the first business in the United Kingdom to initiate a brand-new Disinfectant System from Medi-Clean operating at their factory in Chadderton.

At the start of each employee’s shift, they enter the booth where facial recognition identifies them and records their temperature, while they take a dose of hand sanitiser.

When the employee passes the initial screening, they then move into the channel by passing through a disinfectant mist for several seconds, in which their skin and clothes are completely sanitised for up to 24 hours.

They repeat this process when they clock off.

If an employee’s temperature is too high, an alarm will sound- in which case they will not be allowed to proceed any further and the business can take appropriate safety actions.

This reassures that everyone is operating safely in conjunction with the other control measures put in place over the last few months for COVID-19.

The system records data using an app, connected to the company’s computer network, to show the temperature at the start and end of each shift, the clocking in and out time can be checked, as well as many other features.

One of the team, John Moran, said: “RBM UK is a busy factory and it is great that we have this device.

"It’s a quick process and it is reassuring that we all know our temperatures are ok and we have been disinfected before we start work and when we go home."
