Hygiene and the need to minimise the risk and spread of infections has never been more important.
Firms need to ensure employees remain safe and healthy – it’s vital for staff wellbeing and essential to a successful business.
Safety is the watchword and employers must make sure they have steps in place to instil confidence in their workforce by limiting the chances of any infection which would result in time off work.
Remaining operational and productive is at the very core of a thriving business and having staff off work does nothing to help that process. That is why basic hygiene and prevention of infection are now featuring high on any company’s list of priorities.
Occupational health company My Occ Health, in partnership with Midlands-based Summerfield Healthcare, has produced a must-have mail-order kit of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supplies which can be delivered to businesses. The companies are also offering COVID-19 testing provisions to manage symptomatic or absent employees.
The PPE in a box is designed to help keep your business operating at peak efficiency while providing the added layer of safety to bring employee confidence to the workplace and minimise the effects of absenteeism.
The Workplace Starter Kit is recommended quality PPE equipment for five employees for five days. It includes one infrared thermometer, 50 masks, 100 pairs of gloves and five hand sanitisers.
Having taken delivery of your starter kit, there is also a PPE Top-Up Kit available.
These tried and tested kits are approved by My Occ Health and Summerfield Healthcare medical professionals and provide the essential items needed to reduce the risk of spreading germs.
Dr Grant Charlesworth-Jones, of Summerfield Healthcare, said: “As more and more people return to work after lockdown, businesses are realising they need to act in limiting the risk and spread of infections – and not just because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Basic hygiene and protection are also important in preventing the spread of more traditional viruses which have an effect on employee health on a regular basis. These kits will help keep people healthy at work with the positive knock-on effects of keeping businesses operational.
Dr Charlesworth-Jones also urged businesses not to leave it until the last minute.
“All business are going to need PPE at some point whether they are reopening now or in six months but if all businesses wait until they need it, it may not be as readily available,” he said.
