2019/05 Cam Syml i Leihau Costau PPE

Amser: 2019-05-20 Trawiadau: 154

While it may seem obvious, one of the easiest things you can do to decrease your PPE cost is to take care of it.

Companies who properly launder their gloves can often increase lifespan by up to 300%. Laundering removes harmful chemicals, perspiration, and everyday grit and grime that can weaken protective fibers and seams. Think of the grit like sandpaper. Every move you make is creating friction as these particles rub against the threads of your gloves. Additionally, many OBMs and other chemicals over time begin to break down the fabrics from which gloves are made. Even OSHA has a statement regarding PPE cleaning "Clean and properly maintained PPE is important to ensure the effectiveness and proper functioning of PPE…“

Some of the things that we have seen work well include:

· Rhowch ddau bâr o fenig i bob gweithiwr, bob yn ail bob dydd. Mae hyn yn rhoi cyfle i'r menig sychu, sy'n ymestyn oes

· Purchase a scratch-and-dent washing machine from your local appliance center and wash gloves each night with Dawn® dish-washing liquid, Oxy Clean®, or Simple Green® to remove as many oils as possible. When using laundry detergent, powdered works better than gels

· If you don’t have access to a washing machine, rinse off and scrub with Dawn® dish-washing liquid or Simple Green®

· Wash your gloves with your hands in them like you are washing your hands. Then use an old toothbrush to remove sand and debris from the seams. Let dry overnight

· Sicrhewch fod menig yn ffitio'n gywir, oherwydd gall gwisgo'r maint anghywir leihau bywyd maneg

· If one hand of a glove gets ruined, make sure you keep the other glove available in case the opposite glove gets ruined for someone else

· Check the care label of all gloves, or check the website for launder-ability. Some materials and gloves are not launderable or lose their performance when washed

· Always store your gloves or other PPE in a dry, ventilated area away from the sun. Moisture, heat and UV light can over time break down components of almost all PPE
