To combat the spread of the coronavirus, workers all over the world are spending much of their days using disinfectants to clean countless surfaces. This represents a much higher exposure to these chemicals than is normal.
Protection against the spread of the coronavirus requires hospitals, municipalities and essential manufacturers and services to ensure their common areas are being properly disinfected with disinfectants meeting the criteria for use against the coronavirus. While the situation continues to rapidly evolve, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified disinfectants in their List N, that are thought to be effective against the coronavirus. Note that per guidance from the EPA FAQs, all products in List N are thought to be effective, even if they do not specifically list the “human coronavirus”.
On March 26th, Health Canada released it’s own list of hard-surface disinfectants that meet their requirements for emerging viral pathogens. “These authorized disinfectants may be used against SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.” We know that many have been challenged with finding proper disinfectants and we hope this makes the process easier.
To help our clients and supporters to ensure they are using disinfectants that have been evaluated, by a independent regulator, to be effective against the coronavirus as well as to keep workers safe and prevent exposure both to the virus and excessive amounts of chemicals, Rillea Technologies is working on the following: a) summarizing a list of disinfectants from the EPA’s List N, b) cross-referencing of these products with Health Canada’s list, where possible, c) sourcing the safety data sheets (SDSs) for the products, d) reviewing the SDSs for appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), e) using SDS RiskAssist™ to create 1-page safe handling summaries for easy information socialization to workers, and f) providing a link, where possible, for purchase of the product.
The work to date is shared in the table below. Please feel free to review the table, click on the green buttons to see or print the 1-page safe handling summaries and to download the SDSs for any disinfectants you are using. Please note that the surface being disinfected must remain wet for the stipulated contact time.
We will work to keep adding chemicals to this list as we are able.
