Transportation

A innovation in hygiene for the Transportation Sector

Airandé’s focus on preventing contamination of contagents within the Transportation Sector

Research confirms that contamination in public transport poses significant health dangers to passengers, operational staff, and drivers.

Transportation creates an environment in which there is a rich source of dangerous pathogens, micro-bacterial activity and causes of cross-infection as well as pollutants that cause illness and trigger upper respiratory (and other) illnesses.

Practices to control infection should be part of the organisation of every transport company. In general public transport implement superior hygiene solutions in order to minimise the risk of cross contamination.

Disinfection should be made as easy as possible and should extend to all areas, surfaces and the air.

Airandé’s Disinfection Solution is easy to implement, fast acting, considerate to the environment and one of the safest options for public transport employees and their passengers.

What the experts are saying:

There has been significant research into the risks of exposure to infection in public transportation:

Li and Gale (2012)1 note that the growth of modern civil aviation raises significant ongoing concerns over routine air travel and these concerns are vastly magnified in the event of an epidemic/pandemic/terrorist attack using chemical and biological agents because: (A) air travel transports infected individuals to new locations; (B) aerosol person to person transmission can occur within the cabin; (C) transmission can occur via cabin surfaces.

In all three cases, efficient infection control strategies are needed such as decontamination or sanitization of aircraft. Aircraft Decontamination (may consist) of delivering VHP (Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide) through a stsand-alone system, in an efficient way, without requiring bulky vaporisers or other heavy equipment within the cabin, such that the system is capable of delivering controlled quantities of VHP to achieve sporicidal conditions throughout the cabin.

Vaporised hydrogen peroxide (VHP) is a promising method for infection control and sanitization of aircraft.

Kacer et al (2012)2 has defined Hydrogen peroxide as “the ideal decontamination agent…due to the non-toxic products of its decomposition – water and oxygen (and its) well-described antimicrobial activity and strong oxidative potential are also a good precondition for its wide application against biological and chemical contaminants.

Troko et al (2011)3 observed in a study of bus passengers in 2008/2009 that recent bus or tram use within five days of symptom onset was associated with an almost six-fold increased risk of presenting to a GP for treatment of accute respiratory infection (ARI).

The Solution

Airandé’s non-toxic, environmentally friendly solutions to contamination strengthen the infection control practices that should be a part of the protocols of every dental surgery.
