Biosite has also pledged to donate 10% of the proceeds of Hand Sanitiser Stations and refills sold throughout 2020 to the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity’s crisis appeal.
Michael Bryant, Commercial Director at Biosite Systems Ltd, said: “Ensuring robust hygiene practices is a cornerstone of both government and industry guidance but we realised that it is not always possible or practical to have wash stations in certain areas on site.
“For these scenarios, hand sanitiser gel is the next best alternative to soap and water, and our portable Hand Sanitiser Station can be quickly and easily deployed in areas that require hygiene facilities.
“We had also become aware of the alarming increase in calls to the Lighthouse Club – an increase that signalled a lot of our peers in construction needed urgent support.
“The Construction Industry Helpline app is an incredibly helpful resource that operatives can use to access often vital information.
“We wanted to help raise awareness of the app on site by signposting it on the Hand Sanitiser Station and to support the Lighthouse Club by making a financial contribution from the proceeds of both the station and any refills sold this year to help the team continue to do their essential work.”
