Your PPE Supply Shouldn't Be Dwindling - Here's Why

Keeping your employees and customers safe and healthy isn’t just a trend of 2020. Safety is a full-time commitment, especially as illnesses like the flu and COVID-19 continue to affect workplaces and communities.

In the early days of the pandemic, demand for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) hit an all-time high as essential employers rushed to buy gear for their workers. Now, the use of PPE, like masks, has become commonplace as it remains crucial in preventing infectious diseases. Demand is still high for this gear and is predicted to stay in high demand until at least 2024.

Not only is a full supply of PPE helpful in the safety of your employees, but you can also use it to help the success of your business. In this guide, we present the reasons why you should still be stocked up in PPE.

Supporting Your Technicians and Customers

Workplace hazards can’t always be avoided, but they can be mitigated. Your technicians are in a unique field where they don’t just face dangers in their workplace but also in the many homes they service throughout the day.

You can support your technicians by supplying them with PPE, such as masks or face covers, to wear in throughout their workday. Additionally, as an employer, you are in a unique position where you also want your customers to be safe from a potential spread as your technicians work in many homes throughout the day. Preliminary evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people who become infected with the Delta variant can be infectious and spread the virus to others.

This evidence has led CDC to update recommendations for fully vaccinated people to reduce their risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and potentially spreading it to others. Your technicians can meet these CDC recommendations by wearing a mask in indoor settings regardless of the potential transmission level.

OSHA has provided a chart on the situations your technicians may find themselves in and their exposure risk level.

Supporting Your Business

In addition to helping your customers and technicians feel safer, PPE can also help with the success of your business. Branding your PPE with your company’s logo can help drive your brand’s recognition, consistency, and culture.

This reinforcement of your company’s image can help your customers remember your name and could make it more likely that they’ll use your services again in the future.
