Eldo Care Explain Why PPE & Training are So Important



ELDO is a business that primarily manufactures disposable wipes. In 2007, the product range expanded to include disposable vinyl gloves. Now, the company also provides disposable latex gloves, and since the COVID-19 crisis, disposable face masks.

Despite being at high risk of exposure to COVID-19, frontline healthcare professionals who were appropriately protected did not contract infection or develop protective immunity against the virus, and the good thing is that the pandemic has made us more aware than ever before of the importance of personal protective equipment in many areas of our life, including hospitals and our places of work. 

 

As Eldo Care explain, personal protective equipment is special equipment you wear to create a barrier between you and germs. This barrier reduces the chance of touching, being exposed to, and spreading germs. Personal protective equipment, or PPE, protects its user against any physical harm or hazards that the workplace environment may present. It is important because it exists as a preventative measure for industries that are known to be more hazardous, like manufacturing and mining. 

 

PPE used in healthcare includes gloves, aprons, long sleeved gowns, goggles, fluid-repellant surgical masks, face visors and respirator masks. The initial risk assessment of whether or not PPE is required is based on the level of risk of transmission to and from the patient. 

 

Personal protective equipment (PPE) helps prevent the spread of germs in the hospital, and protects people and health care workers from infections. All hospital staff, patients, and visitors should use PPE when there will be contact with blood or other bodily fluids. 

Wearing glovesprotects your hands from germs and helps reduce the spread of germs. 

 

You may need to use different types of PPE for different people. Your workplace has written instructions about when to wear PPE and what type to use, and you will need PPE when you care for people who are in isolation as well as other patients.
