Personal Protective Equipment

Personal protective equipment is special equipment you wear to create a barrier between you and germs. This barrier reduces the chance of touching, being exposed to, and spreading germs.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) helps prevent the spread of germs in the hospital. This can protect people and health care workers from infections.

All hospital staff, patients, and visitors should use PPE when there will be contact with blood or other bodily fluids.


Choose the Right Protective Equipment

You may need to use different types of protective equipment for different people. Your workplace has written instructions about what type of protective gear to use and when to use it.

Better Shield™

BetterShield™ Full Face Shield is designed to provide better shielding, even on the sides and bottom of the face. This premium face shield securely fits the widest range of users; one size fits all. Key features include distortion-free optics, secure fit, adjustability, airflow and ventilation, with a 3D curved design.

The BetterShield™ provides the widest range of coverage for the healthcare worker, protecting them against high level diseases. The BetterShield™ can also be used together with an N95 mask and/or glasses or protective goggles if required, and is preferred over the traditional flat face shield for better splash protection, again, reducing the risk of contamination.

The BPA free wide frame band is not made with natural rubber latex and provides a comfortable fit and is easily worn over prescription glasses.

Supports compliance with OSHA Bloodborne Pathogen Standards 1910.1030(d)(3)(x) and EEC Mandates.
