During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there has been an increased demand for hand sanitiser and surface disinfectant products.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has guidance for employers who are providing hand sanitiser for their workers and others to use in their workplaces, and for existing and new manufacturers of hand sanitisers and surface disinfectants.
The guidance about choosing hand sanitiser may also be useful to members of the public. There is guidance on:
- choosing the right hand sanitisers and surface disinfectants
- manufacturing and supplying hand sanitisers (PDF)
- manufacturing and supplying surface disinfectants (PDF)
- HSE's response to increased demand for the manufacture and supply of biocidal hand sanitiser products during the coronavirus pandemic
There is further advice on cleaning, hygiene and handwashing to make your workplace COVID-secure.
