Maumee, OH. – March 18, 2013 — Spartan Chemical Company, Inc., a recognized leader in the formulation and manufacture of sustainable cleaning and sanitation solutions for the industrial and institutional market, announced today the availablity of its Hard Surface Disinfecting Wipes for cleanup and disinfection of bloodborne pathogens in healthcare, education and other facilities.
In order to promote worker safety, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed the Blood borne Pathogen Standard (Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 29 CFR 1910.1030) which provides important protection for workers who can reasonably be anticipated to come into contact with blood or OPIM (other potentially infectious materials) as a result of doing their job duties. An important component of the standard relates to cleanup and disinfection of a spill containing blood borne pathogens. Spartan Chemical’s Hard Surface Disinfecting wipes offer a compliant, hospital grade solution for the removal of such spills.
“A key concern in blood borne pathogen cleanup is cross-contamination,” says Greg Ford, VP of Sales for Spartan Chemical Company. “Our Hard Surface Disinfecting Wipes provide convenient and effective cleaning and disinfecting in a disposable wipe that eliminates this concern.”
In addition, Spartan Hard Surface Disinfecting Wipes also provide an EPA registered efficacy for the disinfection of the “superbug”, CRE (Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae).
“While hand hygiene is the first line of defense against the spread of HAIs (Healthcare Associated Infections) caused by CRE,” says Ford, “Spartan’s Hard Surface Disinfecting Wipes can be used to disinfect high touch surfaces that are contaminated with CRE, reducing the risk of contact with this dangerous bacteria.”
Spartan Hard Surface Disinfecting Wipes are formulated to disinfect hard, non-porous, inanimate environmental surfaces. Offered in three pleasant fragrances: Fresh, Lemon and NABC, the convenient wipe kills 99% of bacteria in just 15 seconds (Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli O157:H7). Effective against the common cold (Human Coronavirus) as well as HBV, HIV-1 and CRE, Spartan Hard Surface Disinfecting wipes provide a solution for a variety of germicidal initiatives.
