BIG Safety was quick to respond to clients and customers needs as preparations for swine flu protection kicked into full swing.
Some clients were ordering enough masks for their workers to last up to one month. Our clients have the philosophy that they need their businesses functional and operational therefore it is better to be safe than sorry. The investment in P2 masks is a small price to pay for insurance to ensure their businesses do not stop in the event of an epidemic.
The P2 disposable masks are usable for five years from the date of manufacture, which makes the investment pretty small if amortised over five years.
The most common masks purchased were the P2 disposable face mask with exhalation valve.
With the news spreading the world about the threat of “Swine Flu” I just wanted to clarify the most apropriate masks and include a quick Question and Answer video to assist people in understanding the risks, protection measures sites to check for up dated information.
The US CDC (Centre for Disease Control) recommends N95 NIOSH approved masks to prevent the spread of SWINE FLU. N95 is a US standard for disposable face masks. The equivalent disposable face mask in Australia is the P2.
The link below talks about the resonable steps that you can take to protect yourself as well as a Question and Answer summary from the Centre for Disease control websitehttp://www.news.com.au/story/0,27574,25391554-401,00.html
