Bad hygiene hotspots in offices

Our comprehensive range of products can improve hygiene standards in all of these problematic areas:

The usual epicentre of germs; our soaps, sanitisers and hand dryers can help to prevent harmful pathogens from escaping the washroom.

Reception / Front doors

First impressions are crucial in any industry. Installing any of Initial’s fixed or serviced matting will ensure yours is a positive one.

Dining Areas

Anywhere with high usage, food and people bringing in germs can pose hygiene issues. Using surface sanitising will help to keep these germs at bay.

NEW - Lateral Flow Test Disposal

Many businesses are looking to safely reintroduce their employees back into offices.  Our used lateral flow tests and associated PPE waste solution can help you to quickly and safely test your colleagues. We offer our lateral flow disposal bins on a weekly or fortnightly short term service schedule. Our trained Customer Delivery Representative will attend your site and collect the waste directly from the bin.

Due to being designated as different European Waste Codes (EWC) used lateral flow tests and any associated PPE must be disposed of in different bins. Lateral flow tests are categorised as chemical under the European Waste Codes (EWC) 18 01 07, whereas PPE is categorised as offensive under 18 01 04.
We offer two distinct waste solutions to keep you fully compliant with legislation.
