As people return to work, and shops & malls begin to re-open, the mass flow of passengers through our MRT system will swell and eventually return to normal volumes. The operators of all Mass Transit systems have to maintain a difficult balance between passenger well-being and safety weighed against smooth uninterrupted passenger flows, maintaining punctuality in accordance with timetables and now, more recently, an intense focus on hygiene and infection control.
Clearly this represents a significant challenge. How do you keep millions of passengers a day free from the risk of cross-infection via contaminated ‘high touch’ surfaces? The answer is, call in Big Red who have over three decades of experience in keeping Singapore’s citizens free from infection. In a Mass Transit scenario with large volumes of passengers flowing through the system almost continuously, clearly there is no feasible way to keep each and every surface free from infectious disease organisms using a conventional short-term disinfectant. Because no sooner could a surface be cleaned and disinfected than it could, in theory, be re-contaminated by the next passenger!
So how do Big Red solve this conundrum? They do so by applying a surface coating of BRShield a durable disinfectant layer that can kill and disable infectious disease organisms 24/7 for over 180 days. This video shows how a Korean transit station is being decontaminated.
