It is vitally important that vehicles are kept clean, at a level that minimizes the spread of the coronavirus, particularly between drivers’ change. Coronavirus is transmitted mainly by droplets (for example, from sneezing, coughing, or contamination from the hand to the mouth to the surface). Therefore, the areas of greatest risk are likely to be those in front of the. driver's mouth and nose, and those that touch. These include the steering wheel, gear lever, operating panel (radio, a/c conditioner, etc.), seat belts, mirrors, door handles, window controls, air conditioning controls, controls and displays of infotainment, the dashboard, the fuel cap and the keys.
These areas should be thoroughly cleaned at the end of each driver's service period, each. day or before each delivery, whichever comes first, using disinfectant wipes (which must be available / stored in each vehicle).
1. Before cleaning, the driver must perform hand hygiene with alcohol gel.
2. Put on nitrile gloves.
3. Remove and dispose of general trash.
4. Clean vehicle areas described above, including keys.
5. Complete the cleaning log and view it on the dash visible through the windscreen.
6. Get out of the vehicle and lock it.
7. Take gloves off and dispose of them (for general cleaning, this is not a "biohazardous waste"
and can be placed in an ordinary landfill).
8. Repeat hand hygiene with gel alcohol.
Cleaning should be methodical and thorough.
In the event that a vehicle is delivered after driver self-isolation or a confirmed COVID-19
infection, a deep cleaning may be necessary.
If a new driver takes over a vehicle, and the cleaning log is not visible or it is not clear that
cleaning has been performed, you should carry out hand hygiene, wear nitrile gloves, clean
the vehicle as directed and then complete the registration.
