Preventing the spread of infection
It is our duty to protect ourselves and others around us.
We have been given government guidelines about keeping 2m (6ft) apart but what happens if this isn’t always possible? Although we don’t want to deprive the NHS of vital supplies we can still keep ourselves safe at home, whilst shopping or working, by using appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is protective clothing or equipment manufactured to guard a person from infection or injury.
PPE covers a range of different items from Disposable Aprons and Disposable Gloves to Hand Sanitisers and Face Masks; all carefully produced to safeguard and protect people against infection.
