End-to-end infection control with four lines of defence
When it comes to health management and hygiene safety, prevention is always better than cure. With hands-on experience of infection control in acute facilities, Veridia has a wide range of products and resources to help you keep your people safe and your premises compliant.
From surface protection and hand care to personal protective equipment and detecting symptoms, our wide range of products includes nitrile gloves, face masks, disinfectant and many more.
Surface Disinfection .
As your first line of defence, surface disinfection is a critical layer of infection control. It minimises the spread of pathogenic infectious microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses which can survive on surfaces for a period of time.
It is important to use the correct grade of disinfectant and follow manufacturer’s instructions including dwell times and expiry dates. It’s also key to both visibly clean and disinfect appropriately for hard, soft, sensitive, porous and non-porous surfaces. ATP Testing is a great way to measure results.
For more detailed surface disinfection advice, read how to protect people from harmful microorganisms like COVID-19 and download our Surface Disinfection Guide. With a wide range of products including Biosan II, Kwiksan and the Accent Plug N Pump range, Veridia has everything you need.
Hand washing is the simplest and most effective layer of defence against infection. Our hands can have 4.6 million bacteria on every square centimetre, so keeping them clean with effective but gentle hand soap is critically important for infection control.
But when it comes to effective hand washing, there’s a lot more to consider than simply killing infections with harsh chemicals. At Veridia we have commercial moisturising soap solutions that are harsh on infection, but kind on hands.
Veridia’s Accent Handcare brand provides nutrient-rich soaps in economical, safely sealed cartridge dispensers, keeping your hands clean, healthy and moisturised. To learn more, read our article on how to ace five key moments for hand hygiene or download our hand washing guide.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Once your surfaces and hands are clean and disinfected, the next layer of infection control is high quality personal protective equipment to slow the spread of infection from viruses and bacteria.
Veridia has an extensive range of PPE products including antigen tests, nitrile gloves, vinyl gloves, apparel, face masks, face shields, hand sanitiser, disinfectant and alcohol wipes. We also offer leading brands such as from brands including Biosan II and Kwiksan.

Whether a proactive protection measure or regulatory requirement, early identification of people with infectious symptoms is an important infection control measure.
This is particularly important for high traffic facilities and healthcare or aged care operations that are home to vulnerable customers, residents or visitors.
Veridia offers infrared thermometers for temperature checks and rapid antigen tests for COVID-19 testing to help you quickly detect symptomatic persons before they pose a risk to your facility.
