‘‘Best practice” are two words the Whiteley organisation takes very seriously. Because in the field of cleaning and infection control – best practice saves lives and livelihoods.

And given how pathogens spread and mutate so easily, improving infection prevention processes has never been more important. Fortunately, under the leadership of Dr. Greg Whiteley – a world-renowned expert on infection prevention and control, best practice is always advancing.

An obsessive focus on clinical research combined with a bespoke TGA certified manufacturing facility has already led to many significant advances in hand hygiene as well as medical instrument and hard surface cleaning and disinfection. And these have been relied upon by healthcare facilities both in Australia and overseas for many decades. Today, more than ever, that has never been more important. Whiteley – protecting lives and livelihoods since 1933.

Whiteley’s core customer base for disinfectants in Australia has traditionally been the healthcare sector (Hospitals, Day Surgeries, Aged Care, GPs, Dental etc.) and the commercial cleaning sector ( building service contractors, and smaller cleaning companies who clean shopping centre, healthcare facilities, schools, offices etc.)

In recent times, due to the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the requirements of COVID SAFE business plans, our target market has expanded significantly to include retail outlets, hospitality, beauty care, and manufacturing to name a few.
