This programme allows graduates to work alongside professionals from around the world on technology that is dedicated to building a safer, cleaner, and healthier future for all.

In his own words, Spike shared, “I’m truly inspired by the vision to create a world where every patient feels safe. Joining SSG, a company that has such a profound and positive impact on society through various channels, is a real privilege.”

We asked Spike why he chose SSG for his first Halma Future Leader Development Programme – “When selecting my first rotation within the Halma group, various HFLs could not recommend SSG enough. The family culture, industry, purpose driven leadership and an opportunity to explore RTLS, an exciting and emerging technology, appealed to me greatly.”

Using antimicrobial additives in our nurse call systems to reduce the level of microbes in clinical environments

 

To support our Healthcare customers in the fight against healthcare associated infections, at the point of production, SSG incorporates an antimicrobial agent Polygiene BioMaster™ into the touch surfaces of our nurse call systems.

Based on silver ion technology, Polygiene BioMaster™ provides round-the-clock product protection from harmful microorganisms such as MRSA and E.coli. This passive environmental hygiene is a useful line of defence as it inhibits the growth of microbes on treated surfaces, between moments of active environmental hygiene.

Matt Clutton, Product Manager at SSG (Static Systems Group) said: “The addition of Polygiene BioMaster™ into our hand units and toilet pulls helps to keep patients and clinical teams safe by inhibiting the growth of bacteria and microbes on the product, for the entire lifespan of the product.”

The silver ions enter the cell through its outer layer, block the enzymes, preventing the cell from generating energy, and disrupt its DNA, thereby removing its ability to split and replicate.

A clinical swab of surfaces within a silver-treated clinical area revealed a reduction of 92.6% in bacterial load*. A clean environment benefits both patients and staff in areas where good hygiene levels are crucial for clean, safe care.
