The term 'Infection Control' relates to strategies that should be put in place to reduce the risk of an outbreak in your business.

Best practice combines antibiotic stewardship with clinical practice, environmental cleanliness and general hygiene precautions.

Recommended products for infection prevention and control

Portable Ozone Room Sanitiser (OTEX)

The ultimate deep clean machine

As an essential piece of kit in the fight against infections, our portable ozone disinfection machine uses natural ozone gas to safely reduce viruses, bacteria and other micro-organisms in the room and on its surfaces - while permanently removing unpleasant odours.

Whilst manual cleaning can reduce levels of micro-organisms to safe levels, the additional use of gaseous ozone following your cleaning regime can enhance the overall impact and provide reassurance that manually inaccessible areas are also treated effectively.

Thermal Disinfection Dishwashers

Meet best practices for food hygiene

Unlike standard dishwashers that don’t feature thermal disinfection, and may therefore only achieve limited ‘surface cleanliness’, JLA’s thermal disinfection dishwashers give care homes & hospitals – as well as hygiene-conscious restaurant and hospitality kitchens – the optimum method of killing micro-organisms.

Using a specified temperature for a defined time to eradicate the risk of cross-infection within a load, they not only clean but decontaminate plates, crockery and other items.

Thermal Disinfection Dishwashers

NHS Guidelines for ward end dishwashing stipulate that a cycle should maintain either 65ºC for 10 minutes or 77-82ºC for 2 minutes.

Sluice Room Macerators

Automate your sanitary and waste disposal process

With an ‘Inco’ model that has a built-in bacterial suppressant, and ‘Pulp’ models that offer hands-free operation, JLA's range of macerators offer a fast, hassle-free alternative to manual apparatus – and eliminate the infection risk of wide area contamination that can occur when using manual processes and yellow bags.

Standard precautions for infection control

The most common principles of infection control given by the NHS include best practices in:

  • Hand hygiene
  • The use of personal protective equipment
  • The safe use and disposal of sharps
  • Safe handling and disposal of clinical waste 
  • Spillage of blood and bodily fluids 
  • Decontamination of equipment and environment 
  • Safe management of linen

Although these standard precautions are given as guidelines by the NHS, they form a useful foundation for other businesses and organisations to follow healthcare-standard best practices where applicable.


  • Meet food hygiene standards and get high quality results in every cycle with thermal disinfection dishwashers.
  • Use OTEX ozone disinfection washers if you have a large-scale on-premise laundry for uniforms and table linen – or a communal service launderette.


  • Safeguard staff, students/pupils and visitors with thermal disinfection dishwashers.
  • Consider ozone washers if you have a large on-premise laundry for boarders and resident staff.
  • Provide more hand soap at different wash stations around your buildings and campuses.
