From fighting fires to dealing with hazardous chemicals, there are many forms of PPE. When it comes to ensuring safety around biohazards, Aftermath technicians are equipped with the best PPE available for the task. We want to pass on this same type of safety to you.
According to OSHA, “Bloodborne pathogens are infectious microorganisms present in blood that can cause disease in humans. These pathogens include, but are not limited to, hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the virus that causes AIDS. Workers exposed to bloodborne pathogens are at risk for serious or life-threatening illnesses.”
In the past 4 years, Aftermath has given away hundreds of PPE kits to police and first responders throughout the country. Because of it’s disposable nature, numerous departments have told Aftermath that PPE is something they truly need; winners often put their kits in their cruisers, so that they are ready for any biohazard situation. Last year, one winner stated that he had to use his kit almost immediately after receiving it. Jokingly, he said he didn’t even have time to enjoy winning before he needed it!
