Reusable Face Masks

Our reusable face mask service is for businesses that require protection against cross-contamination and virus protection by a reduction in touching the face. This includes people working, for instance, in food processing, pharmaceuticals, or retail industries.

Reusable Masks & the Importance of Hygiene in the Workplace

The importance of hygiene is becoming more apparent in the current climate. Studies are now showing that the only way to prevent or slow down the virus transmissions is to protect people from getting the virus in the first place.

This happens mainly by supporting people to be hygienic, to wash hands more often, and by helping them be more considerate around other people. The Reusable Face Mask Service introduced aims to help in the latter. The fabric mask will help people to keep from touching their face which is a major source of infection and act as a barrier for droplets of saliva or discharge from the nose when a person coughs or sneezes.

The reusable face mask is not to be considered as a medical device or PPE as it has no proven protective features.
