Controlling Infection in the Workplace – Lockabox PPE Storage Solution
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it is now more important than ever for employers to ensure they create a safe workplace. Remember the PPE provided in GCSE science – goggles, masks, and lab coats? Well, now it seems this is our new normal, it feels we are in one big science experiment..and as controversial as this may seem, PPE has become an essential part of daily life, especially within the workplace. Typically it is healthcare practitioners, dentists, and scientists that wear PPE…but not anymore, it is now personal trainers, accountants, and lawyers as well! So how can employers navigate the complications of PPE Storage and help prevent cross-contamination within the workplace.
Well, we can help with our small discrete solution, let us tell you how:
By storing essential PPE in the Lockabox to ensure it is not contaminated
Employers can make use of the Lockabox One by using it as a secure and safe PPE storage solution for hand masks, face shields, and sanitisers. The three-digit combination lock will ensure that once items of PPE are placed within the Lockabox One and the box is locked the items will be unable to be contaminated and accessed by others. This makes them perfect for workplace storage as they can be placed out of the way of employees and can be stored safely throughout the pandemic allowing companies to bulk buy and not fear essential items will be contaminated or go missing.
Designating employees a Lockabox for their own PPE storage
Providing each employee with a designated Lockabox where they can store essential items of PPE reduces the risk of contamination and spread amongst employees. Keeping PPE stored safely in a dry area allows it to be reused and kept in a good condition, meaning less money needs to be spent on renewing PPE equipment. It also allows employees to gain control over their PPE and reduces their worry surrounding the risk of their items being contaminated. Once it is locked away they know it is only them with the code and nobody can gain access to their PPE.
As a storage solution for employees personal belongings
During these times employees may be worried about bringing personal items into the workspace due to the risk of contamination. Although lockers may have been a proven solution before the pandemic it is now difficult for employees to access lockers whilst still maintaining a 2m required distance due to the proximity of their positioning. On the contrary, by providing each employee with a Lockabox on their desk they can store their personal belongings safely and securely and there is no risk of those items being contaminated or shared by others. The Lockabox One is lightweight yet secure, meaning it can be easily moved to suit any requirements and office spaces. Allowing employees to gain reassurance over their items whilst maintaining safety and following guidelines.
