The cost of work-related illnesses

According to the Health and Safety Executive, work-related illness and injury sees the UK lose 30.4 million working days per year at a cost to the economy of an estimated £14.1 billion.

Meanwhile, the World Green Building Council reports that improving indoor air quality (IAQ) can increase productivity in the workplace by up to 11 per cent.

So it’s clear that businesses across Britain have plenty to gain by implementing changes to air handling systems, particularly at a time when ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) technology enables reliable, low-maintenance disinfection of such equipment.

Gibbons Ultraviolet Solutions supplies and installs UVGI systems in most building types, including schools, offices, food and beverage production facilities, restaurants, hotels and healthcare centres.

Our innovative air and surface disinfection systems use ultraviolet-C (UVC) light technology to destroy contaminants such as germs, bacteria, viruses and mould that can cause and aggravate respiratory disorders and infectious diseases.

These systems are chemical free, quick and easy to install, require minimal maintenance and continued use can prevent contaminants from returning.
