Firstly, consider your entry and exit points—you don’t want people re-entering and re-contaminating the area—you may need security, or additional staff to secure the area. Secondly, consider your cleaning protocols, for example, how are you using your cloths? What chemicals are you using and how? And thirdly, consider how you are verifying that you are cleaning the site to a safe level.
