We have started the de-escalation within the Coronavirus crisis, many workers return to their jobs. For all those who have doubts about how to protect yourself against the coronavirus in this new stage, we leave you some tips.
We offer you different options about how to take care of ourselves against COVID-19 in this new phase.
Protection will depend on the possible degree of exposure to the virus:
– Those who are in contact with patients should use fully closed glasses, they are type glasses Goggle
– For those who need prescription glasses, there is also a certified model of glasses with anti-liquid protection, with hermetic closure of the eye area, which due to its design is another smaller option compared to a goggle. This is the case of the glasses ORGANIK HERMETIC.
– Those who are facing the public in shops, pharmacies, supermarkets, etc., and have contact with many people, have a possible medium / high degree of exposure, in which case we recommend comprehensive face protection with a face shield. This screen consists of an adjustable visor to the user’s head and a transparent cover that protects our eyes, nose and mouth from possible splashes or droplets of potentially infectious liquid. It is used in conjunction with the safety mask and its cover is anti-fog. You can see our model HERO to know more details.
– Those who already come to their workplace, and are not exposed to frequent contact with clients, should bear in mind that protection throughout the working day is important, avoiding touching their faces and / or protecting the routes of infection. Also, we must be alert when we use public transport or are in closed areas with other people.
For these cases we recommend the use of glasses with a transparent lens, neutral or adding prescription if necessary, with side shields that help protect the eyes by keeping the area as closed as possible. As in the previous proposal, the use of a mask in conjunction with this PPE will help us have the necessary security elements to take care of all the points that we must keep safe. Two of the examples we have mentioned about glasses with side shields are models BRAVE and FEVER.
Whether you use a face shield or glasses, remember that in any case you should frequently clean these protective equipment that comes into contact with the face correctly.
The face shields can be cleaned with a soft cloth slightly moistened with a solution of room temperature water and a mild non-alkaline detergent. Once washed, remove the screen with a cloth and do not use it until it is completely dry.
You can wet the glasses with water and apply a small drop of soap or detergent to each lens to rub them gently, just like with the frame. Remove the soap with water and finally, to dry them, use a microfiber or lint-free cloth to avoid damaging the lens.
In any case and whichever option you choose, our main recommendation is that you always wear certified glasses, by an approved laboratory, and guaranteed quality. Keep in mind that taking care of our health is the most important thing.
The protective screens protect the face from liquids (drops or splashes). Its colorless visor completely covers the eyes, nose and mouth, and must be used together with a mask. The visor is placed on the head and adjusted by a harness until the perfect fit is achieved, leaving “hands free” to carry out the operations. This type of face shield is a protection barrier that also offers comfort for those workers who are in daily contact with the public.
Yes, we recommend cleaning the screens frequently. For this, only a cloth moistened with water and a little detergent will suffice, and to dry it also use a soft cloth. It should be kept out of contact with abrasives, solvents or solvent vapors. Do not use the screen until it is completely dry.
There are different options for visual protection against COVID-19 (Coronavirus) depending on the activity you carry out. If you are directly in contact with the virus and therefore very exposed, it is likely that you need a single-lens type goggle. For other activities, such as customer service, in addition to face shields are options like neutral glasses or prescription glasses closed by their sides with side shields.
