EDG protects employees with long-term Coronavirus kill surface protection


EDGGroup has taken CORONAVIRUS Protection to the next level by treating their entire fleet and offices with a Long-term CORONAVIRUS kill solution.

As keyworkers in the transport industry, we knew our services would be essential and that despite the pandemic it would be business as usual for EDG. To survive we would require the support and commitment of our entire team. One of our main priorities at the start of the pandemic was how to provide the safest working environment possible.

EDGGroup can confirm that the long-term surface protection product used has now been tested for efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 virus. This update adds to existing tests against TGEV Coronavirus certification for the product used by EDGGroup Ltd. This serves as further evidence of efficacy against enveloped viruses. It is also the intention to continue testing on SARS-CoV-2 in 2021 and beyond to give full confidence of product and process application by the EDGGroup team. To ensure the safety of our employees we investigated options to minimise the risk of CORONAVIRUS contamination and protect our staff.

As we know the vaccines are out, yet likely that pandemic restrictions will be part of our lives in 2021 and the proven antiviral activity against SARS-CoV-2 are key to keeping staff, stakeholder and the population safe. However, any new norm will need to embrace a level of learning from 2020 and this pandemic, of which surface protection is a vital role in the fight against the transmission of transient microbes, especially in high touch areas that are hard to clean in-between “touches”.

Fortunately, in addition to TPN, EDG also provide services in facilities management, where upon the expertise and knowledge of best solution and strategy was in-house. The Long Term CORONAVIRUS Kill solution is a manually applied 2 pack inert formula, which creates an ultra-thin layer of protective glass offering an antimicrobial solution killing Coronavirus, MRSA, SARS – CoV-2, N1-H1 supported by scientific swab testing and trend analysis monthly post application, for complete confidence.

This additional layer of security has provided our stakeholders, and most importantly our staff the confidence they deserve with the knowledge that best practises and planning is ongoing and reviewed to minimise the risk of transmission.
