Return to Work Packs

Medsurg have designed the Get back to work pack for yours and everyone else’s safety, as the preparation to open businesses begins.

As you know we need to stop the spread of the covid19 virus by ensuring we all keep 2 meters apart, work from home if possible and try to prevent droplets of saliva or secretions when we cough or sneeze.

The wearing of a disposable mask prevents the wearer spreading the virus and therefore contaminating the environment they are in (workplaces, trains, tubes and buses).
We supply 2 types of face masks, both of our face masks have a bacterial filtration and a particulate filtration built into the layers of breathable fabric. Our daily use 5 ply water repellent face mask (FFP2), can be worn for up to 8 hours. This face mask has 5 layers of filters built within the material and is comfortable, breathable and gives you confidence that you are protected to the highest level. In our view this 5 ply (KN95) gives the best protection from droplets from coughs and sneezes.Our other face mask is a 3 ply type IIR (EN14683) fluid repellent face mask that can be worn for up to 3 hours. This is the best 3ply on the market, which is rarely offered online as it is usually reserved for surgical use.There are cheaper 2 and 3 ply disposable face masks on the market that are not CE tested and do not give you the protection you require. There is mass confusion over what mask suits what industry because for example, a builder, an office train commuter or a salon beautician would typically be fine with a type 1 or 2, but remember we aren’t trying to prevent spray tan smells or brick dust – we’re trying to protect a killer virus.

Using an inadequate mask – This is one of the most dangerous threats to society right now. Why? People going out in close proximity thinking they are protected when they are not, is worse than having no mask and staying indoors. There are also self-made cotton, or washable masks for sale and as trendy as they may look, this isn’t a fashion contest. We’re preventing viral droplets from escaping or entering.

Advice
Always look for the EN14683 standard before you buy your face mask. The EN14683 demonstrates that the mask has been tested for the bacterial filtration (BFE) and the particulate filtration (PFE). There are a lot of new mask sellers on the market today, which we appreciate. Not all are bad, and many are doing what they need to do in order to diversify their business. Please be careful, and don’t always be led by price. Do your research, understand what you are buying, and lastly ask yourself if you were to go in for an operation and your surgeon wore a washable cotton fashion mask or a grade 1-2, would you be happy?

Finally, the most important message we all need to pass on is how to wash your hands correctly, you should ensure you wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds and wash from your wrists down to your finger tips, ensuring that you get the soap between your fingers. This is vital as the virus has a lipid membrane which soap and water kills. If you don’t have washing facilities near you, then use a 65-70% alcohol hand sanitiser that would also kill the virus in the same way.
