UAE 두바이, 건설현장에 코로나바이러스 자동 소독장비 설치

   UAE 두바이 앰뷸런스 서비스공단은 구급대원들과 그 동료들과 가족들을 다양한 종류의 감염 위험으로부터 보호하고, 코로나바이러스(COVID-19)의 확산을 막기 위한 예방책으로서 첫 '자동 소독 워크' 서비스를 시작했다.

Self Sanitisation Walk라 불리우는 이 장비는 구급대원들이 확인되고 의심되는 COVID-19 사례와 함께 작업하는 동안 옷에 걸릴 수 있는 감염원으로부터 자신을 보호하도록 도와준다.

이 장비는 20초도 안 되는 시간에 근로자들에게 옷을 소독하는 안개 스프레이를 뿌린다. 움직임을 자동으로 감지해 사람이 통과할 때만 스프레이를 뿌리기 시작해 에너지를 절약하는 데도 도움이 된다. 이 장치에는 손 소독장치도 있다.

The device helps paramedics safeguard themselves from any infection that their clothes may catch during the course of working with confirmed and suspected cases of COVID-19.

The ‘Self Sanitisation Walk’ sprays workers with a mist that disinfects clothes in less than 20 seconds. By detecting movements automatically, the device starts spraying only when a person passes through it, helping to save on energy. The device also has hand sanitisers.

According to state-run news agency, Wam, the ‘Self Sanitisation Walk’ has been installed at the entrance of the accommodation facility of Dubai Ambulance’s field workers, along with thermal screening equipment.

“The new device, developed in collaboration with SFFECO Global, enables healthworkers to perform their duties with a high level of safety. By efficiently sterilising their clothes and shoes, the ‘Self Sanitisation Walk’ allows paramedics and other staff to gain an additional level of protection,” the executive director at Dubai Ambulance, Khalifa Aldrai, said.

The initiative is in line with the directives of the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to ensure the safety of the community and the protection of frontline workers in the fight against COVID-19.

The president and chief operating officer at SFFECO Global, Hadi Al Khatib, said it collaborated closely with Dubai Ambulance in transforming this project from concept to reality in 24 hours, as part of its commitment to serve the community and support efforts to combat the COVID-19 outbreak.
