These boxes are aimed at all employees regardless of whether they work in an office, a construction site, a restaurant or a clinic. EPE kits will also benefit employees whilst they travel to and from work. This represents a responsible commitment to the welfare of employees everywhere.
EPE Kit Benefits
- A responsible commitment to employee welfare, health and safety
- Increases safety for employees whilst at work
- Increases safety for employees whilst travelling to and from work
- Increases likelihood of employees attending workplace
- Reduces risk of business disruption/ interruption due to viral outbreak
- Reduces risk of potential legal action against employer
- Reduces potential liability and insurance risks
- High-quality, certified products delivered to the office regularly
- Each employee receives their own box/ PPE supply, which avoids regular contact with a shared supply that could become contaminated or is shared unevenly.
Infrared Thermometer – The thermometers do not require contact with a person and can swiftly measure temperature from 1cm-5cm from the forehead. These are particularly useful for use in public places like a hotel, airport, factory or office. These are battery-operated, handy and easy to use thermometers, which do not require any trained technicians. Whilst they are by no means definitively accurate in the detection of COVID-19, they are widely being used across the world to detect potential symptomatic COVID-19 carriers.
Pulse Oximeter – These easy-to-use devices simply clip on to your finger and measure pulse rate and blood oxygen saturations, which can be key indicators in viral infection.
KN95 Masks – ViraxClear has developed its own range of KN95, FDA Registered and CE marked masks, which may be comfortably worn for hours.
Disposable 3 Ply Masks – ViraxClear has developed its own range of FDA Registered and CE marked 3-ply disposable masks, which are particularly helpful travelling to and from work.
Gloves – To reduce the risk of transmitting potential pathogens, particularly during travel to and from the workplace.
Antimicrobial Hand Wipes – These wipes include active agents to kill certain types of potential pathogens.
ViraxClear EPE kit works to help keep the workplace safe in three ways:
- Limiting Contact Transmission: The antimicrobial wipes and gloves limit the transmission of germs from direct and indirect contact with the environment around us to our hands and face. This is applicable both travelling to and from work and whilst in the workplace.
- Limiting Airborne and Droplet Transmission: The use of 3-ply masks and KN95 masks can help to minimise the risk of respiratory viral transmission.
- Detection: Early detection of COVID-19 symptoms is key in limiting the spread of the virus. Pulse oximeters and infrared thermometers could allow employers to detect signs of infection and restrict the transmission to others.
