SafeHandles™ Antimicrobial Solutions
Every day, police officers, sheriffs and correctional officers come in contact with high-risk populations such as drug-abusers, the homeless, etc., which can affect their health and sanitary conditions. These high-risk populations along with crime scenes expose law enforcement officers (LEO) and their facilities to biohazards. SafeHandles™ is committed to providing a 100% safe sanitizer that can eliminate these health risks.
Most LEO are sensitive to this vulnerability and therefore make a habit of wearing gloves to protect themselves from biofilms such as urine, feces, saliva, and blood. However, these are not enough to protect their patrol cars and work areas from harboring the harmful bacteria, germs and fungal threats associated with these biofilms.
In an ongoing study with a Northern California Police agency, SafeHandles™ found a single patrol vehicle can have up to 5,000 relative light units (RLU) of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is correlated to the presence of bacteria. RLU numbers that are greater than 1,000 are classified as dangerous with a high risk of contamination from disease-causing bacteria by the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA). So, clearly, values above these levels should be dealt with as a serious health hazard. This quickly made us aware that police service vehicles are at a high risk of being susceptible to the transferring of dangerous illnesses.

“ SafeHandles is a win all around.”
“ … not one single case
of MRSA has been reported since we began using SafeHandles.”
At SafeHandles™, we specialize in offering antimicrobial cleaners for hard surfaces and spaces within law enforcement facilities. PURE Hard Surface is a game-changing disinfectant that kills and eliminates the build-up of dangerous viruses, bacteria, and fungi. PURE Hard Surface disinfectant kills a wide variety of pathogens, providing a 24 hour residual protection from certain bacteria when used with one of our recommended electrostatic sprayers. These units produce the greatest coverage and labor savings, providing up to 23,000 square feet of disinfectant coverage.
In fine-mist form, the non-toxic PURE Hard Surface cleaner provides a sanitizing coverage of all your facility surfaces that cannot be achieved by manual application – no matter how hidden or cluttered. Why hasn’t this application method been used with existing sanitizers? Bleach, Peroxide, and QAT based sanitizers with similar kill claims as Pure HSC cannot be electrostatically applied because of serious health hazards associated with inhalation of these sanitizers in vapor form.
Zap Germs Away, Anywhere, Anytime
PURE Hard Surface is a disinfecting formula that is tough on disease-causing germs but gentle on the environment, humans, and animals. The non-toxic formula provides a deep sanitization of jails, prisons, law enforcement offices, and vehicles. killing a wide range of pathogens within as little as 30 seconds. These pathogens include Human Coronavirus, Influenza, Listeria, Norovirus, Salmonella, and E. coli, etc. It can also eliminate the common flu and cold viruses that are easily spread within jail facilities.
Registered with the EPA since 2011, PURE Hard Surface disinfectant was designed with superior efficacy on hard, non-porous, environmental, and food-contact surfaces. This means it can be used around the entire facility to eliminate both enveloped and non-enveloped viruses.
The odorless non-irritating formula does not require special personal protective equipment (PPE) during use. Additionally, when used on surfaces, including food-contact surfaces, no-rinse is required.
PURE Hard Surface is sold ready-to-use and unlike typical disinfecting cleaners, PURE Hard Surface doesn’t contain bleach, ammonia, phosphates, phenols or VOCs (volatile organic compounds). In fact, it is registered with the lowest EPA toxicity rating – Category IV and has an HMIS rating of 0,0,0,0 with no signal warning words. The hybrid formula is non-caustic, non-toxic, and non-irritating, making it safe for anyone to use in any environment.
Using the PURE Hard Surface antimicrobial surface sanitizer, SafeHandles™ conducts a monthly electrostatic treatment protocol on law enforcement patrol vehicle fleets. Each treatment consists of a 30-second application of a micro electrostatically charged fine mist. This ensures that all surfaces of the vehicle regardless of access or orientation are disinfected. This included the vehicle heater and air-conditioning units. Post-treatment ATP testing has consistently shown results of less than 30 RLU.
Over the course of 2 years of monthly treatments, the pre-treatment levels of ATP have decreased to a much more acceptable level, i.e. less than 200-300 RLU.
During the past 2 years of working with law enforcement agencies, SafeHandles™ has received positive results and feedback that other law enforcement agencies should seriously consider ensuring the health and well-being of their staff. At a very affordable rate, SafeHandles™ is providing sanitation services to law enforcement vehicle fleets along with information sessions on how the process works and best sanitary practices.
