Quayclean to ensure health of venue attendees when AFL season re-starts
June 9, 2020

With the AFL season re-starting this week, leading cleaning, hygiene and waste management company Quayclean has been contracted to seven of the eight venues to be used by AFL clubs in coming weeks – Marvel Stadium, GMHBA Stadium in Geelong, the SCG, Giants Stadium, the Gabba, Metricon Stadium and Adelaide Oval (before Port and the Crows head to the Gold Coast).

Quayclean carries a significant responsibility to ensure the safe health of all venue attendees with Quayclean staff set to be particularly busy at Marvel Stadium and Metricon Stadium with these venues hosting weekend and same-day double headers in coming weeks.

Quayclean’s staff will be cleaning and disinfecting areas and surfaces including:-

  • Team changing rooms, coaches rooms and interchange benches
  • Umpires rooms
  • Media conference rooms, tables and chairs
  • Media facilities including radio and TV broadcast areas, desks and chairs
  • Lifts
  • Handrails, doorknobs, support ledges, toilets, light switches, phones, fridges, taps
  • Stadium equipment control areas and equipment
  • Photocopiers, printers

Quayclean Chief Executive, Mark Piwkowski said his staff have undergone special training programs to ensure the venues are safe for players, officials, media and stadium event-day staff.

Piwkowski notes “the cleaning and disinfecting of these areas are essential and all Quayclean staff have completed and are certified in the Government recommended ‘Infection Control Training – COVID 19” program.

“Staff will use World Health Organisation approved, hospital-grade cleaning and disinfectant products and will spend around 22 hours cleaning venues before the first bounce, and 60 hours post the final siren.

“The purpose of the cleaning and disinfection process is to remove viral contamination from environmental surfaces and equipment surfaces to eliminate transmission of the virus from these surfaces.

“Additionally, a team of cleaners will be conducting rotational cleaning of all occupied areas of venues while games are in progress.”
