Christopher - People of Pearson

“I’m studying mechatronics engineering and management at McMaster University and I just finished my internship on the Greater Toronto Airports Authority’s Facility Systems Engineering team. 

The airport is a small city, with engineers in almost every discipline. It’s a small but powerful team of experts with a hand in almost every aspect of the airport experience.

At the start of the pandemic, I began looking into our options for sanitization. UV light was a very promising technology and that’s how we came to install CleanSlate UV’s smartphone disinfection units.

If you’re exposed to the sun’s UV rays, you’ll get sunburned. Over time, that could become cancerous. The same thing happens to virus cells under UV light, except much quicker, breaking up the virus DNA and stopping it from replicating.

That’s how CleanSlate works—it’s chemical free and it takes twenty seconds to use. That’s exciting because this is making people measurably safer and it’s also allowing you to feel more confident and in control.”
