Business solutions provider Transguard Group has been instrumental in the UAE’s fight against COVID-19. The company has deployed more than 1,000 staff to provide deep cleaning and sanitisation services to offices and residences all over the UAE. Its educational offerings have also been increased in an effort to keep its employees actively engaged and upskilled for the next phase of their careers.

Transguard Group managing director Greg Ward said: “Dedicated, specialised training has always been at the very foundation of what makes Transguard an industry leader. To support the increased demand for cleaning, Transguard’s Centre of Excellence (COE) has continued to upskill our employees in a variety of safe sanitisation practices.”

Transguard’s BISCs-certified teams deliver bespoke trainings across key areas, including the deep sanitisation of public areas, offices, and vehicles; high touch point zone cleaning for buildings and automobiles; and chemical room fogging. Employees are also proactively educated on the importance of safe hygiene and how to limit the risks of the spread of all germs while completing their daily tasks.

The COE has also recently ramped up its efforts in loading, warehousing, logistics and more as it continues to deploy its employees to companies currently requiring additional support, such as supermarkets and delivery services.

Ward explained: “Not only are we keeping our staff actively engaged, we are also empowering them with new skills that they can use in other parts of Transguard as they progress through their careers with us.”

With cleanliness and sanitisation at the forefront of everyone’s minds, Ward acknowledged that the Transguard team has taken on a surprising new role in the wake of global events: “They wear masks and protective gear instead of capes, but I hope everyone realises that all cleaners are heroes as they continue to support the country and the world in the battle against the spread of COVID-19.”
