Creative PPE for your Staff
With a high demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) in the workplace, especially in industries that have not always required them, we are beginning to see a new level of creativity blossoming in the workplace. For those who are handy with a needle and thread, making masks is fairly easy, but not everyone is skilled in sewing. There is no need to worry, there are other avenues to take when it comes to PPE!
- Makeshift masks with layered paper towels and rubber bands
- Rubber Kitchen gloves if the store is sold out of latex gloves. Rubber kitchen gloves can even be sanitized and reused
- Well-fitting snorkel masks - an NYC physician suggested using a snorkel mask to help reduce droplet and aerosol exposure, as well as prevent touching your face!
- Make your own face shield from a hat or visor and clear vinyl from your local craft store
These ideas are just a few among many creative ways to protect yourself, your employees, and even your family. If you find that it is hard to keep personal protective equipment stocked, look into some creative avenues, and try to think of options that can be reused and sanitized.
