High Level Disinfection Services For Transportation

Public transportation is indispensable to the millions of people that use it to connect to jobs, medical facilities, schools, shopping, and recreation. Trains alone transport nearly 5.6 million riders a day. As a result, overcrowding is common and provides the ideal environment for the colonization of bacteria and mold, and for the transmission of viruses. Bacteria such as Streptococcus, Staphylococcus (Staph), E. coli, and the influenza virus are regularly found on high touch surfaces as well on the seats of buses, trains, airplanes, and cabs.

TOMI™ Service Network (TSN) disinfection services may be the necessary step to lowering the risk of transmitting infections; keeping busses, trains, and other modes of public transportation open and functioning.

Employing TSN to disinfect with SteraMist™ powered by Binary Ionization Technology® (BIT™) may increase passenger and staff confidence that surfaces are fully disinfected. Utilizing the SteraMist™ Surface Unit, TSN primary service providers can eliminate Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Influenza A, and Staphylococcus aureus. The SteraMist™ Surface Unit is also effective for use against mold and mildew and removes odor causing bacteria.

Patients and personnel working in emergency medical transport vehicles may be at risk to blood-borne, airborne, droplet, and direct contact infections due to medical and health care practices administered to the patient (sometimes over a long period of time) in a closed air ventilation system and limited air space.

Overcrowding can provide the hot and humid conditions that bacteria and germs thrive within, which is causing hygiene concerns for passengers. According to the CDC, 5 factors that are conducive to the spread of infectious bacteria include, crowding, contact, contaminated surfaces, compromised skin, and lack of cleanliness.

Over the past five years, an average of 14 cruise ships a year have had outbreaks of illness. Though infections can be passed via contaminated food and water, when it comes to cruise ships it is typically spread through physical contact with ill people or surfaces/objects they may have touched.

The CDC states that the environmental management of influenza and other respiratory viral diseases should include routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, as well as more frequent cleaning of commonly touched hard surfaces, such as food trays, lavatory surfaces, and door handles.

TSN Recommendations for Disinfection
Frequent Use:

Disinfection procedures should focus on high touch surfaces that come into direct contact with the public each day. When a vehicle is out of service for inspection, TSN primary service providers can be employed to disinfect:

  • Seats
  • Grab Poles & Handles
  • Walls, Windows & Floors
  • Overhead Compartments
  • Equipment
Regular Maintenance and Renovations:

Utilizing TSN for routine disinfection after maintenance and repairs is an the perfect time to introduce a vehicle back into public use fully serviced. Further promote this added step for quality control with TSN’s SteraMist™ Advantage Program.

Emergency Preparedness:

Developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in response to weaponized anthrax, TSN primary service providers are equipped with the best disinfection tool for emergency response.
