Food production, storage and distribution industries require a different approach to PPE. You need to be certain of a high protection level in order to avoid cross contamination. Because cleanliness is our primary consideration; our process satisfies the most stringent of health and safety standards.
Of necessity, disposable latex gloves are most commonly used in food preparation. As well as supplying those, we can help you with your chilled storage and distribution PPE.
Our impressive Otex system is used by the NHS and is proven to kill all detectable bacteria.
We have sent washed, soiled and new gloves to be tested by a UKAS approved laboratory. As we expected, the bacterial activity on both samples fell below detectable levels.
Because of our intervention, many food production and distribution employees are no longer disposing of used thermal gloves. When they are soiled or wet we collect and process them and return them sanitised and bacteria free.
Adele, the NPI buyer and team leader of a well known milk and yoghurt producer said,
“With our large workforce using PPE daily comes the growing costs of PPE and the environmental impact of sending used PPE to landfill. Staysafe have provided us with a solution to this issue. They collect our used PPE, gloves and bump caps, wash them and return them to us ready to be re-used. We have saved around £30K in just over 12 months and limited our waste to landfill. Each pair of gloves can be washed and re-used approx. 5 times so good for the planet too! Washing uses no harsh chemicals, so another bonus”.
