How do you reduce risk of exposure during transport to work?27 April 2009
Public transport should be avoided.
Options for transport to the workplace, in order of preference from a risk perspective, are:
c) Shared travel where passengers come within 1 meter (3 feet) of one another.
Vehicle occupants are advised to wear a surgical mask while in the vehicle. Commonly touched surfaces (door handles, driving controls, surfaces in immediate vicinity of seating) should be wiped down with a recommended disinfectant solution before each use of the vehicle.
All occupants should wash their hands soon after leaving the vehicle, and avoid touching their faces during transport.
Hands should be washed after any wipe-down procedure.
a) Travel alone in own vehicle.
Under such circumstances, no special protective meas-ures are required.
b) Travel alone in a rented vehicle.
On first acquisition of the vehicle, commonly touched surfaces (door handles, driving controls, surfaces in immediate vicinity of seating) should be wiped down with a recommended disinfectant solution.
Hands should be washed after any wipedown procedure.
