Disinfectant dispensers to protect against microbe transmission
Especially in modes of transport in which lots of people come together, pathogens can quickly propagate. Regular hand hygiene is thus especially important. The most hygienic solution for a bus is a sensor-controlled disinfectant dispenser. This contact-free variant prevents hands coming into contact with the device. Both alcohol-based and water-based disinfectant solutions can be used to prevent any germ transmission. The refillable disinfectant dispenser is now available and can be installed on the walls or grab rails of the bus as a retrofit.
If you are interested in the available COVID-19 retrofit package, please contact your OMNIplus service centre.
Virtual coaching offer with the focus on touring coaches
How can I ensure the optimum way to ventilate my coach? What must I do before, during and after a trip to keep the risk of infection as low as possible for staff and passengers? The virtual OMNIplus training offer for employers and drivers will give you the answers. The offer is currently available in Germany, but Europe-wide implementation is under consideration.
The online course will pay particular attention to how the climate control system functions. The aim of the course is to advise on the best way to operate the system, and to convey basic technical knowledge. You can register for the training course by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
OMNIplus service centres pay attention to health
In times of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly care is required of the service in order to minimise the danger of infection. The OMNIplus service brand has therefore issued strict rules for its own firms in Germany, as protection against viral infections.
This begins with the vehicle being handed over outdoors, without any direct contact, in the yard of the service point. Inside the building, floor markings in the customer contact area help to maintain the required physical distance. In all areas, cleaning frequency has been increased, and disinfectant dispensers are available. Ordered spare parts are deposited on a counter to be handed over.
The vehicle key, the steering wheel or operating buttons – all the parts of a bus that are touched are cleaned carefully. Above all, the staff air the vehicles thoroughly – 20 minutes in the open air before each trip and also before the bus is handed back to the customer. If a customer does not wish to travel to the service point at all, they can use the collection and delivery service.
Professional driver protection door with transparent partition
For Daimler Buses, drivers' safety also has top priority. For this reason, OMNIplus provides driver protection doors with a transparent partition for the entire surface for Mercedes-Benz and Setra brands. The retrofit solutions of safety glass or high-quality polycarbonate are already available for many bus models.
