PPE Equipment

As a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, you will notice we have included a new category within our catalogue. We stock a range of PPE equipment to help keep you safe and prevent the spread of the virus. The government website has detailed guidance on protecting yourself and others.

What is PPE Equipment?

PPE is an acronym that has been used a lot in recent months, but what does it mean? PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment. It will be familiar to anyone who works in a Health and Safety setting. PPE was around long before the start of the pandemic and includes clothing and equipment to protect workers and members of the public in different contexts. For example, construction workers wearing steel toe capped boots and hard hats.

Since the start of the virus, PPE has become necessary to help keep people safe and to contain the virus as much as possible. It includes face masks and coverings, protective gloves, visors, aprons, and more besides.

PPE at Lancaster Printing

Lancaster Printing stocks face masks that can be used by members of the public and frontline workers. We also stock hand hygiene keyrings that reduce the need to touch surfaces that could potentially carry harmful germs.

The government has stipulated that face coverings must be word by members of the public in enclosed public spaces such as shops, supermarkets, banks, museums, railway stations and on public transport. Members of the public who fail to do so could face a fine. There are some exceptions to this rule.

Coronavirus is spread when droplets containing the virus are sprayed into the air by coughing and sneezing. Therefore, wearing a face mask helps to contain this. This article has more information on the rules and how to use PPE equipment.

Lancaster Printing stocks face masks for public use. Our 3 ply disposable face masks are comfortable to wear and will protect the wearer from large droplets. They can be disposed of immediately after use.

Of course, if you work in a medical setting then medical face masks are required. We stock these also. Our KN95 face masks are suitable for use by anyone in close contact with Coronavirus (Covid-19). They are recommended for use by NHS staff and front-line healthcare workers. These masks are N95 rated and are designed to protect those at the highest risk of encountering harmful airborne droplets.

When you’re out in public it is often necessary to touch surfaces that have been touched by others. For example, cash points, lift buttons, chip and pin machines, door handles, etc. If surfaces have been touched by someone carrying the virus, then it is possible that it may be transferred. To reduce the need to interact with these surfaces, we stock hygiene hand keyrings.The keyring hooks around the finger for ease of use and comes complete with a hook for door handles, a button pusher and a stylus. Our hand hygiene keyrings can be customised with your logo or artwork.
