|5 BENEFITS OF USING SHOE COVERS
Shoe covers are common items of personal protective equipment (PPE) within the medical, cleanroom, chemical, industrial, laboratory, and emergency environments. Such environments often require shoe covers as part of standard PPE protocols. But what about environments in which shoe covers aren't mandated by industry or facility standards, such as contracting work? Consider these five reasons why shoe covers remain a valuable piece of PPE attire even for contractors such as carpentry, cable installation, HVAC installers, electricians, plumbers, and more.
5 Benefits of Wearing Shoe Covers
Wondering if your workplace should initiate the use of shoe covers? Consider these five reasons why your organization may benefit:
1:Reduces the spread of contamination. Disposable shoe covers can be simply thrown away after leaving a work environment. This drastically reduces the risk of cross-contamination and prevents employees from tracking potentially harmful material to other areas of the building or even into the community.
2:Helps maintain a cleaner room and environment. Shoe covers prevent tracking of substances around the building or workspace, which could otherwise damage flooring, pose as a fall hazard, or impair the sterility and cleanliness of the rooms. Even the spread of ordinary dirt and grime can be prevented by contractors such as electricians and plumbers when walking in and out of a customer's home with the help of disposable shoe covers.
3:Helps keep shoes clean. Many jobs require activities which may expose employees to materials which can stain or damage footwear. Since shoe covers provide a physical barrier between these materials, individual footwear remains cleaner...and more professional looking to boot (no pun intended).
4:Improves efficiency. Employees wearing shoe covers are less likely to require time away from their required job duties in order to clean or change soiled footwear.
5:Improves customer satisfaction. Customers—whether in medical facilities, office buildings, or private homes—appreciate the attention to detail and level of care and professionalism shown by personnel who choose to use shoe covers. Many customers have specific personal, health, or religious reasons against the presence of shoes in the home, and shoe covers offer a reasonable alternative when it's not safe or appropriate for personnel to remove their footwear. Additionally, customers will appreciate the improved cleanliness which shoe covers provide, and likely feel more comfortable and safe in the given environment.
Effectiveness of Face Mask or Respirator Use in Indoor Public Settings for Prevention of SARS-CoV-2 Infection — California, February–December 2021
The use of face masks or respirators (N95/KN95) is recommended to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 (1). Well-fitting face masks and respirators effectively filter virus-sized particles in laboratory conditions (2,3), though few studies have assessed their real-world effectiveness in preventing acquisition of SARS-CoV-2 infection (4). A test-negative design case-control study enrolled randomly selected California residents who had received a test result for SARS-CoV-2 during February 18–December 1, 2021. Face mask or respirator use was assessed among 652 case-participants (residents who had received positive test results for SARS-CoV-2) and 1,176 matched control-participants (residents who had received negative test results for SARS-CoV-2) who self-reported being in indoor public settings during the 2 weeks preceding testing and who reported no known contact with anyone with confirmed or suspected SARS-CoV-2 infection during this time. Always using a face mask or respirator in indoor public settings was associated with lower adjusted odds of a positive test result compared with never wearing a face mask or respirator in these settings (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] = 0.44; 95% CI = 0.24–0.82). Among 534 participants who specified the type of face covering they typically used, wearing N95/KN95 respirators (aOR = 0.17; 95% CI = 0.05–0.64) or surgical masks (aOR = 0.34; 95% CI = 0.13–0.90) was associated with significantly lower adjusted odds of a positive test result compared with not wearing any face mask or respirator. These findings reinforce that in addition to being up to date with recommended COVID-19 vaccinations, consistently wearing a face mask or respirator in indoor public settings reduces the risk of acquiring SARS-CoV-2 infection. Using a respirator offers the highest level of personal protection against acquiring infection, although it is most important to wear a mask or respirator that is comfortable and can be used consistently.
This study used a test-negative case-control design, enrolling persons who received a positive (case-participants) or negative (control-participants) SARS-CoV-2 test result, from among all California residents, without age restriction, who received a molecular test result for SARS-CoV-2 during February 18–December 1, 2021 (5). Potential case-participants were randomly selected from among all persons who received a positive test result during the previous 48 hours and were invited to participate by telephone. For each enrolled case-participant, interviewers enrolled one control-participant matched by age group, sex, and state region; thus, interviewers were not blinded to participants’ SARS-CoV-2 infection status. Participants who self-reported having received a previous positive test result (molecular, antigen, or serologic) or clinical diagnosis of COVID-19 were not eligible to participate. During February 18–December 1, 2021, a total of 1,528 case-participants and 1,511 control-participants were enrolled in the study among attempted calls placed to 11,387 case- and 17,051 control-participants (response rates were 13.4% and 8.9%, respectively).

The Pros and Cons of "Disposable clothing"
The Advantages of Disposable Clothes
When you live out of a backpack for several months on the road it can drive you crazy only having the same few items to choose from. Whenever I get bored I can buy a cheap new shirt or pair of pants to replace one of my oldest ones. Over the course of 6 months or a year, a large percentage of my small backpack wardrobe will have been rotated out for new items.
When my backpack starts to hurt my shoulders or doesn’t meet the baggage regulations anymore I go through my clothes and give away the ones I love the least. I never feel bad when I have to lighten my load by leaving a few clothes behind because I have only paid a few dollars for them anyway. Even if my entire backpack was stolen or lost, I wouldn’t be that devastated because I could easily replace everything inside it.
The Disadvantages of Disposable Clothing
Sometimes when all is said and done, I wish that I could have that beautiful fuzzy cashmere sweater or that totally impractical silk blouse that my backpack would destroy. Buying cheap and practical travel clothes means that you will never feel that glamorous or chic.
In order for this strategy to work the best you need to be able to find cute clothing that looks decent on you for a very cheap price. However, finding something to wear that only costs a few dollars but isn’t hideous can sometimes be a lot of work, especially in high priced locations such as Europe and North America. If you are traveling through an expensive destination, you might find yourself with very few options if you need to buy new clothes. I’ve learn to have a great eye for the sale rack and spot the best deals, but it can take some time.
The ultimate guide to disposable lab coats
Benefits of disposable lab coats
When a scientist wears a lab coat, spills and contamination of that coat are a fact of life. This means that, if a scientist is wearing the same lab coat every day, all day for a week, the chances that different chemicals with potentially adverse reactions combining on the coat become much higher. Even if a scientist wears the same lab coat all day, and cleans it each day, that risk is still there. When a new coat is worn every time the lab is entered, the odds of a chemical reaction due to what’s on the coat are next to zero. This seriously reduces risks of fire as well as physical risks to the scientist.
Throwing away a lab coat after every work session helps ensure that no diseases leave the lab or examination room. Lab coats must be cleaned, and often off-site. However, bringing an infected lab coat to a cleaning facility could start the spread of a new contagion. Even if the cleaning facility is on-site, that means more hands will need to touch the lab coat to clean or sterilize it between uses. This increases the risk of contagions on the coat spreading elsewhere.Fabric lab coats need to be bleached to ensure that all contagions are killed. They also need to be thoroughly washed to ensure no contaminants are left after use. Disposable lab coats are usually made from plastic materials which are less porous than cloth fiber. They are easier to wipe down between uses, and can be washed easily with alcohol or bleach wipes to remove pathogens.
Disposable lab coats come in all sorts of different styles and sizes. This makes it easier for users to find what they want, and they can even order a variety and try them on one by one to see what works best. Lab coats can be custom-ordered to fit various needs. For example, a laboratory working with hazardous liquids can order waterproof lab coats while a company dealing with microorganisms can order antibacterial lab coats.
