Appropriate personal protective equipment

It is important to exercise good personal hygiene in relation to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) as well as your regular uniform.

  • When using gloves, it is recommended as best practice to wash hands with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand rubs before and after wearing gloves.
  • It is very important to change gloves regularly to ensure good personal hygiene is maintained whilst also lowering the risk of cross contamination.
  • It is important to regularly wash the clothes that you wear at work after each shift, as clothes just like other surfaces can hold the COVID-19 virus.
