The return to work in a post-lockdown environment presents many challenges. Staysafe Visor addresses one very important issue…
When the true scale of the unfolding crisis of COVID-19 became apparent to leading UK plastics manufacturer 1stPackaging Limited, the company’s response was swift. Specialising in the large scale production of die-cut P.E.T for products in the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and medical sectors since 2002, they not only recognised the urgency with which PPE would be required across the country, but crucially, had the capacity and agility to switch their production to essential PPE.
Staysafe Visor was created as a specialist subsidiary operation and across one weekend in April, its team created the necessary tools to manufacture high volumes of protective visors. The first week of production delivered 65,000 units (a number that has since risen to more than 250,000), the bulk of which went straight to frontline healthcare
Great efforts were made by small producers in the early days of the crisis but a clear shortage of PPE meant there was an urgent need for the situation to be addressed by specialists in large-scale manufacture with high stocks of raw materials and a reliable supply chain.
The value of visors as a primary element of PPE is well illustrated by the Faculty for General Dental Practice who state that ‘A full-face visor will reduce the amount of exposed skin on the face and neck that may be subject to splash or droplets.’
As lockdown is relaxed to allow economic activity to resume, employees in a broad range of industries require protection. Staysafe produce a range of BSI CE-certified visors which protect against splashes, droplets and sprays, can be easily cleaned and are comfortable to wear.
As industries open their doors in a post-lockdown world, the competitively priced Staysafe Visor range is available from stock for next day delivery.
