Over 1.1 million people carry the HIV virus, and more than 2.7 million people have contracted Hepatitis C in the United States alone. Whether in a jail cell, police vehicle, or at the scene of a crime, using proper personal protective equipment (PPE) is the most widely known and effective means to protect yourself from potential exposure.
Don’t Wait Until Something Happens to Protect Yourself.
Each and every year, first responders just like you become ill or injured when they enter a crime or trauma scene without proper personal protective equipment (PPE). For this reason, it is wise to universally regard all human blood and body fluids as dangerous in order to reduce the risk of infection and prevent serious illness. Just a single puncture wound from a sharp object (needles, scalpels, razor blades, broken glass, even a pen), or even a simple cut or accidental abrasion, can put you in contact with blood or body fluids contaminated with dangerous bloodborne pathogens. To best protect yourself and your department, call the professionals at Aftermath at 877-872-4339.
Don’t Become a Statistic. Learn How (and When) to Properly Use PPE.
OSHA dictates that employees who face the chance of occupational exposure to blood or other potentially infectious materials (OPIM) minimize their chances of an infection by implementing an exposure control plan. Proper use of PPE is one of the most widely known and effective methods to control the spread of disease. For employers, PPE kits and training are a cost saving and convenient approach to safety. We believe so strongly in the importance of PPE that we are giving away 25 PPE KITS and 1 TACTICAL BAG. Each PPE kit included everything you need to help prevent accidental exposure to serious illness or disease, including a full suit with hood, respiratory mask, booties, gloves, and safety goggles.
