The Government has recently announced their proposed “roadmap” out of lockdown. With various steps which will begin to take place over the next few months. In April, significant restrictions will be eased providing the spread of COVID-19 continues reducing in the UK. One notable change due to take place in April is the reopening of pubs and restaurants. Although indoor seating will still not be allowed, premises which have outdoor seating areas. They will be allowed to start serving food and drink to the general public again. This well help out hundreds of businesses who have had to stay closed and struggle throughout the multiple lockdown periods. It’s important that hospitality business owners take the right precautions to protect themselves, their staff, and their customers. The use of PPE such as reusable visors will help minimise the risk of transmission.
Should Employees Wear A Reusable Visor?
Reusable visors are an important part of the PPE that hospitality workers are likely to need to be equipped with once back to work. Research is indicating that wearing a face mask and a face visor provides the highest levels of protection. Especially when preventing the spread of COVID-19. When an infected person coughs or sneezes, their drops can quickly contaminate any nearby surfaces. In the hospitality sector this could be food, cutlery, tables, and anything else that can quickly come into contact with someone else. With the virus being able to spread through the nasal cavity, the nose, and the eyes, it is vital that hospitality workers are wearing full face protection.
By wearing a reusable visor with a face mask, the wearer is protected from even the smallest droplets. Therefore lowering the risk of contamination significantly.
Face Shields In Hospitality: The Benefits
Not only does a face visor create a protective barrier, they can also prevent hand-to-mouth transmissions. People who wear masks are much more likely to touch their face due to needing to adjust their mask. However, with a full face visor on too, the wearer is less likely to reach for their face due to the face shield being in the way. Face shields are easy and comfortable to wear for longer periods of time too. With anti-fog properties, they do not have any negative impact on productivity either.
Another significant benefit of reusable face visors is that they can be cleaned and used again after every use. As a result, providing much better value for money, and providing a more environmentally-friendly option of PPE.
