Facility And Workplace Management Post COVID Era

The unpredictable nature of the novel epidemic (COVID-19) has forced all major organisations to implement precautionary measures for the safety of their employees, in addition to the regular hygiene measures.

The Facility Management needs to ensure that the building and most importantly their employees are safe.

Implementation of the right prevention and containment strategies have now become a must, and deep cleaning of workspaces; a routine activity.

Majority companies are now ensuring that all their employees are inspected, well before entering the premises. Chemicals are being used to “disinfect” an individual, and are also considered as a precautionary measure.

The question that we need to ask is, how safe are the precautionary measures being implemented? How do we ensure that this does not in turn affect the health of the employee?

The Facility needs to ensure that the offices run smoothly with a 10-15 % capacity, adhering to the guidelines of the Ministry of Home Affairs and making certain that social distancing is followed, however with designated seats for employees in most organisations & with a maximum of 2 meters distance between each individual, how do you ensure that social distancing is followed?

Facility Management and the Admin Staff are in the forefront, strategizing and enabling business continuity, however the tension in the air is rising, and the pressure is surreal.


  • If there is only partial control of the Facility Management, how do you ensure coordination between all parties residing in the same office premises?
  • How to cope up with organizational change and physical space management in times of social distancing: How does this affect employees?
  • Turbulence in vendor management and supply chain: How can facilities ensure that there is a smooth movement of necessary goods and supplies?
  • How do we ensure that “frequent touch points” (eg: door knobs) are sanitized on an hourly basis?
  • Developing a strategy and step by step plan to ensure customers entering the premises feel safe
  • What are the right measures to be taken for a proper and complete disinfection?
  • The effectiveness of routine cleaning: Is it enough for the safety and prevention of the pandemic?
  • What is the Pharmaceutical industry doing differently, and what key points can be adapted by other industries to ensure safety?
  • What are the precautions needed to be taken for the prevention of potential contamination within the facilities?
  • What are the new operating models: Will employees adapt to the changing environment and work culture?
  • Rethinking the recovery plan & restoration of facilities: What should be done once the wave of the pandemic passes?

Dev Gupta
Sanosil Biotech

Sanosil’s CEO, Mr. Dev Gupta an MBA from the Bentley Graduate School of Business, Boston is an authority on the subject and has been a leading voice nationally advocating affordable and reliable eco-friendly bio-solutions for indoor disinfection.

Associate Partner

Sanosil Biotech, pioneered the novel concept of eco-friendly fumigation. It is a safe and effective alternative to formalin and other similar products many of which are known carcinogens. Their products Virosil and Virosil Pharma are Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) with Silver ion formulations. These two ingredients have a broad spectrum of neutralizing properties against viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeasts, molds, protozoa and algae.

The result is a clear, colourless, odourless, tasteless disinfectant which is non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic. It delivers significantly superior outcomes for indoor disinfection, where chlorine and ammonia based disinfectants are becoming increasingly unviable.

A brief 60 minute treatment (aerial and/or surface) will significantly reduce the viral threat of any indoor space making it safe for workers and customers alike.

Virosil is trusted by organizations and institutions such as Pfizer, Cipla, Dabur, J&J, Abbott, Serum Institute, Dr. Reddy's, Lupin Labs, Cadila Healthcare, Wockhardt, Biocon, Astrazeneca, to name a few.

Virosil’s patented formulations have also been widely tested and approved for use by various reputed institutions in Switzerland, France, Germany, Australia and the Indian FDA.
