BACKGROUND

HMP Thameside is a Category B Men’s prison located in South-East London. The prison has 638 cells and can hold up to 1200 convicted and remand prisoners. HMP Thameside’s vision is to provide a safe and
respectful environment that works to reduce re-offending through constructive regimes.

THE CHALLENGE

It is vital that prisons provide safe and hygienic cells and facilities to ensure the welfare of prisoners. Research has found that a clean prison environment has a positive effect on prisoner mental health, which helps to reduce future reoffending rates. However, due to the confined nature of prisons, it is easy for infectious illnesses to spread fast.

HMP Thameside regularly deals with incidents, in cells and communal areas, that involve bodily fluid. It is vital that these contaminated areas are deep cleaned in a timely manner to ensure the safety of prisoners, employees, and visitors.
