Covid 19
SSA and Covid 19


Servicing SA shall provide our employees with suitable cleaning and disinfecting products and personal protective equipment, and ensure they are trained on how to use them. 

A combination of cleaning and disinfection will be most effective in removing the COVID-19 virus. SSA will strictly use TGA governmental approved chemicals.

Additionally, SSA has access to ‘emergency sanitation’ and ‘covid 19 response’ cleaning for all our sites on our portfolio.

Cleaning Vs Disinfecting

Cleaning is physically removing germs (bacteria and viruses), dirt and grime from surfaces using a detergent and water solution.

A detergent is a surfactant that is designed to break up oil and grease with the use of water.

Cleaning should start with the cleanest surface first, progressively moving towards the dirtiest surface. When surfaces are cleaned, they should be left as dry as possible to reduce the risk of slips and falls, as well as spreading of viruses and bacteria through droplets.

After cleaning, any single-use personal protective equipment (PPE), disposable cloths and covers should be placed in a plastic bag and disposed of in general waste.


Disinfecting is using chemicals to kill germs on surfaces.

It’s important to clean before disinfecting because dirt and grime can reduce the ability of disinfectants to kill germs.

The following disinfectants are suitable for use on hard surfaces (that is, surfaces where any spilt liquid pools, and does not soak in): alcohol in a concentration of at least 70%, chlorine bleach in a concentration of 1000 parts per million, oxygen bleach, or wipes and sprays that contain quaternary ammonium compounds.

These chemicals will be labelled as ‘disinfectant’ on the packaging and must be diluted or used following the instructions on the packaging to be effective.

Before a surface is disinfected, it is important it is cleaned first because dirt and grime can reduce the ability of disinfectants to kill germs.

Disinfectant may not kill the virus if the surface has not been cleaned with a detergent first.
