Fundación Laboral de la Construcción publishes a Guide for the cleaning and disinfection of workplaces and equipment, to prevent Covid-19

The coordinator of Construction Blueprint, Fundación Laboral, has published a guide to the Covid-19 on its website ‘Línea Prevención’ (Prevention Line), which contains information and practical advice to achieve adequate safety levels on returning to the workplace.

To facilitate the process of returning to work and to guarantee protection against Covid-19, Fundación Laboral de la Construcción has published a Guide for the cleaning and disinfection of these spaces (available in Spanish) and the equipment used during the working day.

The main objective of this document is to provide workers and companies with information and practical advice to prevent the spread of coronavirus, with special emphasis on cleaning and disinfection to prevent the spread of the virus. The text analyzes different key points in the fight against the coronavirus, including a list of objects and surfaces that can be a focus of infection, whether in toilets, workplaces, or rest areas, including furniture, doorknobs, switches or office supplies.

Analysis of the main disinfection and hygiene products

The guide contains a brief informative manual with examples of the main virucidal disinfection and hygiene products authorized by the Spanish Ministry of Health and which have demonstrated their effectiveness against the virus. In addition to a list of commercial products, the document includes products that can be prepared at home or at work with bleach, alcohol or hydrogen peroxide, and their instructions for use to achieve optimum disinfection results.

It also includes a section with general and specific rules for disinfection. Among these, it is important to pay special attention to the characteristics of the center itself or of the workers in it, as well as to reinforce the ventilation and cleaning of toilets and common areas. As for the specific rules, recommendations are given regarding the cleaning of furniture, household appliances, electronic devices, textile surfaces, tools and machinery, vehicles or Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Finally, the guide includes a section with practical advice for the disinfection of the material used for cleaning and the steps to follow in order to dispose of this type of waste.

Fundación Laboral adapts its contents to the latest health recommendations

In addition to this guide for disinfection and cleaning workplaces, Fundación Laboral, through its website ‘Línea Prevención’ (trad. Prevention Line), has updated all its computer graphics on prevention against Covid-19, to adapt them to the new safety protection standards recommended by the health authorities.

Among the resources published is the itinerary of protection on construction sites, with advice to be followed throughout the working day, as well as general information about the coronavirus or recommendations for students and visitors to the Training Centers of the joint entity. All these resources are free and available for download for all workers and companies in the sector.
