Edon is Your Go-To Partner for Workplace Safety

By Edon's Picks, People and Culture

The safety of your employees, guests, tenants and the public are paramount as you prepare to reopen your offices. Edon Management has the expertise, equipment and commitment to ensure these workplaces stay as safe as possible from COVID-19 and other pathogens.

Edon’s full-service solutions, through its Pandemic Recovery Program (EPReP), provides clients peace of mind that comes from knowing your concerns are at the forefront. Edon has state-of-the-art cleaning and disinfecting equipment, an extensive pool of personnel with expertise in building systems, and 24/7 on-call availability to respond to urgent needs. Here is what we can do for you:

Refit Your Office

We can help you fit your office to meet government guidelines for safe physical distancing. Health authorities say that social distancing of two metres – about the length of a hockey stick – handwashing and other strategies of good hygiene are key components of a safe workplace strategy. We’re adding sterilizing stations in prominent locations to ensure frequent disinfecting. Other changes include mapping out and signing traffic flow to avoid physical contact, establishing protocols for staff, providing equipment and guidelines to optimize hygiene, and providing protocols for employee fitness for work.

Enhance Cleaning

Thorough deep cleaning is the new normal in our workplaces. Edon will help maintain the integrity of your space by increasing the frequency of cleaning, and by using new technology to disinfect your work surfaces and office equipment. At the core is our new electrostatic cleaning service – the most effective way to quickly, affordably and continuously disinfect your office, workshops or any surface your employees or clients might come into contact with. Our equipment eliminates pathogens, provides more complete and consistent coverage, penetrates deeply into hard-to-reach areas, and allows you to use your disinfected room or device right away.

Optimize Mechanical Systems

Viruses such as COVID-19 are known to spread through infectious aerosols – that is, droplets flying through the air. The risk of spread can be reduced by improved filtration and adjusting airflow patterns in your building’s heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. Modern buildings have complex and sophisticated HVAC systems that require a high level of expertise to adjust and maintain. Edon Management will adjust your systems to increase air quality, and we can also manage mechanical system upgrades if your system is not up to par.

A review of evidence-based literature on risk assessment of HVAC systems shows that the following procedures should be considered:

  • Enhanced filtration, using filters that exceed the Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating in areas with dense occupancy or are otherwise judged to be high risk spaces.
  • Careful control of temperature and humidity.
  • The addition of local exhaust ventilation for source control.
  • Portable, free-standing high-efficiency particulate filters.
  • Ultraviolet radiation to kill germs.

Working with you as a partner committed to safety, Edon has the knowledge, equipment and devoted staff. Our full-service solutions will ensure your buildings and workspaces comply with all relevant government recommendations and regulations. We deliver peace of mind – for your employees, guests, tenants and members of the public who visit or use your facilities.
