Eldo Care For All Your PPE Equipment



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.

Perhaps one of the most striking lifestyle changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic is the recommended use of face masks in grocery stores, restaurants and other public places. Wearing a mask, especially when in close proximity to others, is imperative to slowing the spread of COVID-19. But one look outside of your “safe-at-home” haven and you might find people wearing masks in a variety of different styles: dangling from one ear, pulled down below the nose or resting below the chin. These common mistakes decrease the effectiveness of masking and increase the wearer’s risk of catching and spreading the disease. 

 

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, and for
