Keep your staff safe with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Personal protective equipment, or PPE, is designed to provide protection from serious injuries or illnesses resulting from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, viruses or other hazards. Careful selection and use of adequate PPE should protect individuals involved in chemical emergencies from hazards effecting the respiratory system, skin, eyes, face, hands, feet, head, body, and hearing. No single combination of protective equipment and clothing is capable of protecting against all hazards. Thus PPE should be used in conjunction with other protective methods, including exposure control procedures and equipment.
When inside an office, store, restaurant or school, or when on public transportation, you should wear a mask. The only exceptions are times when you are alone or with your family, such as if you are in your office with the door closed or in your car.
When you are outdoors walking or exercising near others, it is also important to wear a mask.
Your mask should cover your face from the bridge of your nose to under your chin. It should be loose fitting but secure enough to stay in place. Make sure you can talk with your mask on and that it doesn’t irritate you, so you are not tempted to touch it or pull it out of place, which could limit its effectiveness or put you at risk from touching your face.
The CDC recommends: “Washing hands with soap and water whenever possible because handwashing reduces the amounts of all types of germs and chemicals on hands. If soap and water are not available, using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can help you avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others.” Alcohol based hand sanitizers can deactivate many types of microbes very effectively when used correctly. Hand sanitizers do not replace proper hand washing techniques and will be ineffective if hands are visibly soiled. Users must ensure that they are using a large enough volume and that they are not wiping it off before it has dried. Ideally you should rub it in for at least 30 seconds. If you choose alcohol based sanitizers, which can be available in gel, liquid or aerosol solutions, be aware of where and how you use them. Alcohol based hand sanitizers contain ethyl alcohol, which readily evaporates at room temperature into an ignitable vapor, and is considered a flammable liquid. emergencies from hazards effecting the respiratory system, skin, eyes, face, hands, feet, head, body, and hearing. No single combination of protective equipment and clothing is capable of protecting against all hazards. Thus PPE should be used in conjunction with other protective methods, including exposure control procedures and equipment.
The main reasons for wearing gloves in a janitorial or other cleaning position is to minimize the spread of germs as well as for chemical and puncture protection for the person wearing the gloves. As a janitor or other sanitary maintenance worker, one of their main goals is to keep the environment they’re working in clean and germ free to stop the spread of sickness, which means it is vital that they use gloves. Hands remain cleaner and don’t spread germs when they are protected by a glove barrier.
Anyone working with chemicals on a regular basis should be wearing gloves in order to protect themselves from any harmful effects that come from skin being in contact with chemicals.
For basic cleaning tasks, a pair of disposable latex, nitrile, or vinyl gloves are suitable protection. However, nitrile gloves are strongly recommended for cleaning tasks that take place in healthcare industry environments because nitrile has high levels of chemical and puncture resistance. In many environments, particularly in healthcare, you want to choose a disposable glove because you’ll be changing gloves very frequently.
Face shields are excellent at preventing droplets from coming into contact with the nose, mouth, and eyes, which are the body sites that the virus enters to establish infection.
To get the most benefit from a face shield, always wear a face shield with a mask
The shield should come to the level of the chin or below in the front, it should almost reach the ears on the sides and there should be no gap between the forehead and the front of the shield unless there is a cover over the gap. Otherwise a droplet could come through the gap and land on your face.
Cleaning with a neutral detergent and warm water to remove any visible soiling, followed by a clean water rinse.
We recommend disinfecting the face shield, preferably with a chlorine-based solution. Alcohol can damage plastic and glues over time. In addition, it may remove any antiglare or antifogging properties.
Rinse again with clean water to remove any residue.
