UK – HSE guidance on room disinfection during the Covid-19 outbreak

The UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has released guidance for disinfecting larger spaces or rooms using fog, mist, vapour or ultraviolet (UV) systems during the Covid-19 outbreak. The guidance explains how to choose the right disinfection method and apply it safely. Users must be competent and properly trained. Any disinfectant has to comply with the biocidal products Regulation (BPR). The HSE has previously released advice on how to manufacture, supply and use hand sanitiser and surface disinfectant during the crisis; and guidance for a Covid-19 workplace risk assessment that employers can undertake to make sure their workers are protected.
