Most of us have heard the term PPE thrown around in the discussion of slowing or preventing the spread of COVID-19. But what exactly is it and why is it so important? PPE stands for personal protective equipment. Some examples of PPE are face masks and gloves. According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), when properly used, PPE acts as a barrier between infectious materials such as viral and bacterial contaminants and your skin, mouth, nose, or eyes (mucous membranes). Using PPE combined with proper handwashing and other santitary / discinfecting methods is the best way to reduce the spread of disease transmission, such as COVID-19.
When investing in face masks, looking for quality products are key. Purchase from a reputable company, such as EMC CPR & Safety Training, LLC. In doing so, you can rest assured that you are receiving masks that are manufactured according to FDA guidelines. It can be a costly mistake to accidently buy counterfeit products, which will leave you unprotected, frustrated and possibly at a financial loss.
