The need to provide a safe and secure environment for the workers has given rise to plethora of rules and regulations which are governed by various regulatory bodies. Safe breathable air is one of the most important criteria to be monitored and maintained at all times especially in industrial and work areas. In pandemic times such as now, the need to ensure safe breathable air is of more prominence as the consequences of neglect of it can lead to severe health issues for workers and eventually financial losses for their employers.
Microorganisms and contaminants move on the air currents and get distributed all over the premises circulating through the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems impacting the health and wellness of employees causing adverse health effects, including allergic, toxic, and infection responses. Depending on the risk profile associated, the decontamination of a place can be either carried out by disinfection or through sterilization. Disinfection is the process of eliminating or reducing harmful microorganisms while sterilization is the process of killing all microorganisms.
Radiation sterilization consists of exposing the air and surfaces of an environment to radiation (UV, X-rays, gamma rays) for sterilization. UV rays have low penetration and thus are less effective, but it is relatively safe and can be used for small area sterilization. With the help of floor, wall and ceiling-mounted UV Sterilizers, the commercial establishment areas can be effectively sterilized to ensure safe air to breathe to employees and customers.
