    PPE -Face masks

    The threat of catching the Covid-19 virus has increased all our personal anxiety levels in various ways.

    The long awaited return to work after lockdown, has begun and will no doubt lead to increased anxiety levels in many people,workers and customers alike.

    PPE in the form of protective masks , nitrile gloves and hand sanitiser will play an important role in allowing people and businesses to get back to work feeling safe.

    Government advice in Scotland, England and Northern Ireland is for people to wear face coverings when going into enclosed spaces and to wash our hands frequently.

    UPDATE: It is now mandatory to wear a face mask whilst shopping or using public transport in Scotland.

    It is also mandatory to wear a face mask when travelling on public transport and visiting a hospital in England

    Wearing a mask or face covering is especially important where physical distancing is more difficult and where there is a risk of close contact with people outwith your normal household.


    The consequences of not providing PPE

    Insufficient or no PPE for returning workers can increase tensions and could also potentially cause employers to be in breach of Health and Safety legislation leading to prosecution, heavy fines and loss of reputation.

    Your PPE solution solved

    Glasgow based Workplace personal safety specialists Salvas have worked in partnership with BlueKit Medical in London, to produce a value ‘Back to Work PPE Kit’ for workers.
