Why does the hand sanitiser in my safety pack not have alcohol in it?

Alcohol is not required to kill Covid. Most of the cleaning substances we use at home to disinfect surfaces do not contain alcohol. The hand sanitiser rub we have in our packs has successfully passed the same tests that all hand sanitisers must pass (including alcohol based sanitisers) in order to be approved for use in the UK. 

You can collect your free safety pack from the Level 2 Helpdesk in our King’s Gate building.
