Swine Flu/Influenza Prevention
Daily news reports about Swine Flu raise many questions as to what are the best methods to protect you and your workforce. A suitable P2 respirator that is snugly fitted can help act as a barrier to harmful viral infections and alcohol hand sanitizing can also help destroy viruses and bacteria. Swine flu is caused by type A influenza virus. Germs can be spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth. Droplets from a cough or sneeze of an infected person can move through the air. Germs can be spread when a person touches respiratory droplets from another person on a surface like a desk and then touches their own eyes, mouth or nose before washing their hands.
Seton Australia has a range of masks, sanitizing and related products that are now available. We highly recommend taking precautions especially when traveling overseas or where there are known or suspected outbreaks of viral infections such as Swine Flu.
Important Respirator Mask Information
- Be sure to immediately dispose of used mask after use without touching anything else. This can be done with your normal rubbish
- Used masks should not be reused
- After removal of a respirator mask clean your hands immediately with soap and water or an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
