Is Covid-19 virus transmitted from surfaces?
Several official bodies have reported that the Covid-19 virus is primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets and in contact when a person coughs or sneezes. The role of contaminated surfaces does not contribute significantly to the spread of the virus, according to current information. The structure of coronaviruses is such that they do not remain infectious on surfaces for a long time. And even if the coronavirus is found on surfaces, this does not mean that the virus is effectively transmitted via surfaces.

However, as the Covid-19 pandemic is rather new and we do not yet know everything about the virus, we recommend frequent and regular cleaning of workstations.
General instructions for cleaning Treston workbenches during Covid-19 pandemic
Good hand hygiene is the basis for all. By maintaining good hand hygiene, you can reduce your risk of infection. Have a look here for hand washing instructions from World Health Organization.
Treston products are easy to clean. Follow general cleaning instructions, that is, start cleaning from the cleaner areas, and work your way towards dirtier areas. All surfaces that are frequently touched should be cleaned thoroughly and frequently. For Treston industrial furniture, we have identified the following parts as most important to clean:
1. Workbench, trolley and drawer unit tops
3. Push buttons (e.g. lights, electric height adjustments)
4. Back side of chair back rest (the non-upholstered side of back rest)
5. Any devices (e.g. keyboards, measuring devices) on the workstation that are used frequently
6. Hand cranks, armrests and Tools in the workstation
Please see here the general cleaning instructions for Treston industrial furniture. From here you will find a 10 point check list to keep in mind while cleaning your Treston workstations and a list of detergents and disinfectants we recommend for cleaning.
What else to consider?
If possible, equip each workstation with sanitizing hand rub dispensers. Make sure these dispensers are regularly refilled.
All trash and waste bins in the workstation are good to equip with easily removable, easy to close, leak-proof waste bags. Do not let the waste bags get too full, so that you are able close them easily. When removing the waste bag from the bin, close the bag tightly. Waste bins should be emptied on a daily basis.
Remember to carefully clean the cleaning equipment used. Wipe the handles of the cleaning cart and the surfaces of cleaning containers with disinfectant. Reusable cleaning clothes should be washed at a temperature of at least 60°C or disinfect them. If you used permanent gloves, they should be carefully washed and dried. Disposable gloves should be disposed in mixed waste. Finally, remember to carefully wash your hands with soap and water.
