Thursday 8th April 2021| Today, the UK’s number one disinfectant brand1 Dettol, and the leading flexible workspace provider WeWork announced their partnership to provide sanitisation solutions and hygiene products in over 60 WeWork locations across the UK from April.
Dettol’s hand sanitiser and antibacterial surface wipes will be available for members to use in and around the WeWork spaces. The selected products available for WeWork members are proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and Coronavirus (SARS-COV-2)2.
“Helping break the chain of infection by establishing better hygiene practices as a foundation for improved health outcomes is core to our purpose,” said Rahul Kadyan, Executive Vice President of Global Business Solutions for RB.
This partnership underscores WeWork’s extensive health and safety protocols. WeWork has been working throughout the pandemic to prioritise the health and safety of all members and employees in its spaces. The modifications the company rolled out beginning in 2020 included prioritising personal space by modifying shared spaces, increased frequency and scope of cleaning and sanitisation, enhanced HVAC systems and improved air quality, and distribution of sanitisation products. WeWork’s health and safety measures, response plans and space modifications have been independently audited and awarded a Global Certificate of Conformity by Bureau Veritas, an internationally recognised testing, inspection, and certification organisation.
Nathan Ashker, Head of International Building Operations Compliance & Quality Assurance, WeWork –
“With employee wellbeing undeniably an essential part of every business’s workplace plans, what is also absolutely crucial is that those going into the office know they are doing so in a space that prioritises their safety. We continue to take a holistic approach to implementing protocols and new measures to instil confidence for our community, and our partnership with Dettol reinforces our ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards– a household name known for its scientific efficacy and expertise.”
Rahul Kadyan added, “Our brands are built on trust and scientific expertise. We remain committed to helping businesses, people and communities to break the Coronavirus chain of infection. We are excited to partner with WeWork to give their community a sense of normality as well as the confidence to work from any location, knowing that Dettol helps clean these sites intrinsically.”

Dettol first started in hospitals 86 years ago as a medicine where it was used for cleaning and disinfecting surgical tools to protect mothers from illness after childbirth. Ever since then, Dettol Liquid has been trusted around the world as a reliable and effective medicine for cleaning wounds caused by cuts, bites, grazes, insect stings and for personal hygiene to help mums protect their families from harmful germs. Some home Dettol products are powerful enough to use for environmental germ- killing tasks. Use the products safely. Always read the label and product information before use. Whilst Dettol started by helping preventing infection and sickness in hospitals in the UK, the brand’s mission was always much bigger, aiming to keep people sanitised as part of their every-day lives in the home. Every year, Dettol pledges to do more for families across the world – from going into schools to teach children the importance of handwashing to providing starter kits to new parents to help them care for their new-born baby’s hygiene.
