The scenario – A flight arrives from overseas and according to Australian Government rules, all 300 passengers on board need to undergo a 14-days quarantine period in a hotel. The 300 passengers are temperature checked at the terminal and directed to waiting buses to ferry them to the various hotels located across town.
Upon arrival at the hotel, the passengers are given to the keys to their room and asked to enter their room immediately and not leave till allowed to do so. As the first passenger from the plane arrives at room 401, the cleaning crew exits from room 403 and tells the passenger that room 401 has not been cleaned and he has to wait.
Disaster averted? What if the passenger that was going to stay in room 401 was not infected with COVID19 but caught the virus because the room was contaminated and had not been cleaned by the crew yet? Is there any way we can indicate whether a room has been cleaned and sanitised?
SECURITY LABELS TO PREVENT CROSS-CONTAMINATION IN HOTELS
Seals HQ is working together with a large hotel in Australia to develop a solution which is cost-effective yet provide a clear and accurate indication that a room has been sanitised.
Upon completion of cleaning and sanitising the room, a Non-Transfer Security Label is applied onto the door to indicate that the room is ready for its next guest. Additional information i.e. Date of sanitisation and which team sanitised the room can be written on the label using a pen or sharpie. Any subsequent authorised or unauthorised entry to the room will cause a VOID message to appear on the label.
The same concept is also used for quarantining purposes. After guests are checked into the room, a Quarantine label is applied onto the door. When the guards change shift, the new team of guards does a walk-by and checks to see if any of the labels are showing a VOID message.
SECURITY LABELS FOR SANITISATION OF CAR RENTALS OR NEW CARS
Security labels can also be used to indicate sanitisation of rental cars. Once a car is returned to the depot, a team sanitises the car and applies a label once the sanitisation is complete. Any subsequent entry to the car will cause a VOID message to appear on the label which will indicate that an authorised / unauthorised entry has been made.
The security labels are also serialised with a unique sequential number and barcode. This unique serial number can be recorded on all paperwork to ensure compliance.
SECURITY LABELS TO PREVENT CROSS-CONTAMINATION IN CO-WORKING SPACES
According to industry statistics, there were nearly 19,000 co-working spaces worldwide in 2019, covering over 80 million square feet of real estate. 3 million co-workers worked in a shared co-working space in 2019. Freelancers are the largest co-working demographic in the world.
The chances of a cross-contamination are very high in a co-working environment as there are a very high number of people traversing through co-working spaces every day. We can’t just rely on hand sanitisers at entrances to co-working spaces as the only defence against cross-contamination.
Security labels should be applied on office doors after the office is sanitised by the cleaning crew. Again, additional information i.e. Date of sanitisation and which team sanitised the room can be written on the label using a pen or sharpie. Any subsequent authorised or unauthorised entry to the room will cause a VOID message to appear on the label.
Security labels are a versatile yet simple method to reduce cross contamination. Security labels are a very effective verification method to ensure spaces are properly sanitised before being used by the next person.
All Seals HQ's security labels are customisable and can be printed with various custom designs. We are able to add your own company logo, custom text, serial numbers and graphics.
