PPE Supplies to Keep Your Employees and Customers Safe During COVID-19

With Canada’s first case of COVID-19 being reported over a year ago and the new daily cases continuing to reach highs across the country, it is as important as ever that everyone is taking the necessary precautions to protect themselves and slow the spread of COVID-19. In order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus everyone should be staying at home as much as possible.

However, if you are an essential worker or need to pick up essential items it is recommended to wear facemasks, use hand sanitizers/disinfectants and social distance wherever possible. Here at The Packaging Company, we offer a wide variety of personal protective equipment that can help protect you, your employees and your customers during these unprecedented times.

Face Masks, Face Shields and Gloves

Face coverings are an important part of the comprehensive preventative measures that can help keep yourself and others safe from COVID-19. There are many different types of face masks that are available for purchase ranging from homemade to medical grade. Although the type of mask and its quality does have an impact on the effectiveness of stopping droplets from spreading, the risks are significantly decreased by everyone wearing a face covering of any sort.

Here at The Packaging Company, we have several different types and designs of face masks available for purchase. We carry KN95 masks which are 5-ply, commercially graded and filter 95% of aerosol particles.

These cotton face masks can also be fully customized for your business and employees with a logo or a design of your choosing. Additionally, we offer a selection of protective face shields, vinyl and nitrile gloves, disposable gowns, shoe covers and more.

Hand Sanitizers and Disinfectants

The frequent washing of hands in combination with the use of hand sanitizers and disinfectants are another vital part of the comprehensive preventative measures for COVID-19. If there is soap and water available this should be the prioritized method of cleaning your hands, be sure to use warm water and soap and wash for at least 20 seconds.

If there is no access to soap and water, hand sanitizers that contain a minimum of 60% alcohol are a useful method of eliminating infectious agents from your hands. Be sure to apply enough to cover all areas of your hand and rub together until your hands become dry.

It is important to keep your hands clean especially before and after tasks such as eating or making food, using the washroom, touching your face, playing with animals, playing outdoors, sneezing, coughing etc.

The Packaging Company offers a variety of hand soaps, hand sanitizers and disinfectants that should be used in your business to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We carry an array of sizes ranging from 225ml personal use bottles to 4L bulk supply bottles, all our hand sanitizers contain a minimum of 65% ethanol alcohol and are sure to help keep your customers and employees safe.

Social Distancing Tools

Social distancing is another practiced method of preventing the spread of COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to minimize your exposure. When this is not possible, it is recommended to keep a minimum distance of 6ft away from other people and avoid any type of crowding or contact. In order to make these guidelines easier for customers to follow, it is advisable to have proper and effective signage in place to help remind customers to keep their distance.

The Packaging Company has several different products that can help keep your customers safe and aware of their surroundings. We offer both standard and custom-designed social distancing floor decals that can be placed 6 ft apart for customers to stand on if they are in a line format.
