Glasdon Launch PPE Waste Disposal Bins

Glasdon have launched a range of dedicated PPE bins to support the collection of PPE waste and reduce littering of used PPE.

Following the release of the COVID-19 Return to Work Safely Protocol, businesses are returning to the workplace, implementing the stricter hygiene procedures and social distancing measures required to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19.

One measure for consideration in all aspects of our lives is the use of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) whether as a requirement in the workplace, on public transport or as we venture back into the supermarkets and the wider community.

For businesses, the guidelines state that the precautionary use of extra PPE should not be encouraged, except in clinical settings or when responding to a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19.

However, if a risk assessment does show that PPE is required, this must be provided to workers who need it, free of charge and must fit properly.

The wearing of face coverings is recommended in all areas where maintaining social distancing is not possible, including shops, retail outlets and public transport, while remaining optional in other aspects of our lives. However, if an employee chooses to wear a face covering they should be supported to do so safely.

Dedicated PPE Bins for Collection of PPE Waste and to Reduce PPE Litter

These new ways of working and living bring the potential for a dramatic increase in PPE waste in all environments. Waste that is not familiar to us and that can present challenges for businesses and the public in their duty to dispose of PPE hygienically and responsibly.

Adrian Steen, Director, Glasdon International said:

We’ve responded as quickly as possible for our customers with an extended range of dedicated bins they require for the collection and disposal of used PPE.

It’s our aim to provide solutions for PPE waste that help to simplify disposal for employees, customers and commuters, while improving the operational environment for waste teams and reducing the cross contamination of waste through a more efficient means of segregation for processing.

The Glasdon range of PPE Bins offers solutions for the controlled collection of used PPE, which may be required in manufacturing facilities, warehousing, retail and distribution.

Alternatively for busy transport hubs and public spaces, transparent sack holders or large capacity, hooded bins with recognisable graphics can be used to increase the visibility of PPE disposal points and discourage littering.

Due to the changing nature of operations across all industries, Glasdon are committed to helping you by tailoring our products to your business needs.

We also offer a large range of products to assist with the implementation of social distancing measures and new health and safety protocols. Take a look at our range of social distance floor markers and signs.
