Safety is the highest priority for the UNSW School of Aviation. By adopting SW2™ UNSW are keeping their students, staff and spaces safe.
The day-to-day of the UNSW School of Aviation’s Flying Operations Unit at Bankstown Airport was interrupted by COVID shutdowns. COVID protocols directed that any building an infected student or staff member entered had to close. To reopen a building, UNSW Aviation staff needed to provide a deep clean certification and await approval from UNSW Managers, supervising the COVID response.
That process burdened UNSW Aviation with the significant cost of “deep cleans” and delayed the in-person training that is essential to students’ learning.
As part of COVID protocols, UNSW Aviation implemented nightly cleans. Each evening cleaners would come in for several hours and wipe down all surfaces with a disinfectant. These nightly cleans could not guarantee protection once potential contamination was reintroduced the following day.
How did the UNSW School of Aviation address this challenge?
Allied BioServices came highly recommended to UNSW Aviation by an aviation partner to resolve these issues.
The team at Allied BioServices assessed the Bankstown airport campus administration building and hangar, which totalled 700 square metres including classrooms, offices, briefing rooms, bathrooms, reception areas and kitchens.
In early 2022, the Allied BioServices team applied SW2™, a clinically proven and innovative long-lasting disinfectant technology, to all surfaces in these spaces.
SW2™ forms a protective coating hostile to germs, bacteria and COVID that lasts for 15 weeks.
The long-lasting effect of SW2™ has allowed the UNSW School of Aviation to remain open after reported COVID cases and lets students and staff to safely return to learning sooner.
Applying SW2™ has also enabled UNSW Aviation to revert to normal levels of cleaning (pre-COVID) while protecting people’s health. Despite the UNSW School of Aviation no longer performing nightly COVID cleans, baseline and post-application testing shows SW2™ has vastly improved (by 450 per cent) the hygiene of spaces.
