Does your employees' work expose them to germs and bacteria?

 
There are some health concerns in most industries. There are others, though, where the work could directly expose your employees to germs and bacteria.
 
These are:

Medical laboratory researchers;
First aiders; and
Biohazard transporters.
 
If your employees work in any of these fields, they come into contact with germs and bacteria every day. But there are two pieces of protective gear you can use to help protect them from these health hazards...

Use these two types of PPE to protect your employees from contact with germs and bacteria

 
Rubber gloves: If your employees come into contact with people who are sick or they work with biohazards, they must wear rubber gloves. 
 
They must throw these away after they're finished so they don't spread any of the germs or bacteria. 
 
Face Masks: Your employees can inhale germs or bacteria. This is why face masks can be extremely important. They'll protect your employees from breathing in or even spreading germs to people who are already sick.
 
So, if your employees are in any of these industries, ensure they use these two types of protective wear.
