Industrial work clothing, footwear, protective gloves, helmets, and other protective gear are often contaminated with residues of sweat, soot, smoke, and fuels, which are difficult to clean. These constitute an occupational safety and health risk for the entire personnel. Conventional cleaning methods and equipment maintenance procedures fail to remove such compounds efficiently, and equipment maintenance in itself is a significant factor affecting overall exposure. With Hygio, cleanness of work clothing and gear can be achieved efficiently and safely.
For industry, we recommend:
Improves Occupational Safety
Treatment of work gear and equipment in the Hygio a40 Medi disinfection cabinet removes health hazardous PAH compounds much more efficiently as compared to traditional washing methods. Combining washing with Hygio treatment allows removal of up to 70 percent of the harmful PAH compounds accumulated in the equipment.
Easy to Use As Part of Daily Life
A Hygio disinfection cabinet enables efficient daily cleaning of clothing and equipment, since because of its user-friendliness and safety, anyone can use it. Programs can be started at the touch of a button, and after the treatment, the clothing and goods are immediately ready for use.
Improved Visitor Safety
Disinfection of protective equipment shared by factory visitors is of utmost importance. Without proper cleaning, after each use, shared protective equipment may spread infections, since several visitors use the same pieces of equipment. With Hygio, protective equipment can be disinfected easily, quickly, and efficiently after each use.
Work clothing and protective equipment are often contaminated with residues of sweat, soot, smoke, and fuels, which are difficult to clean. These constitute an occupational safety and health risk for the entire personnel. All protective equipment and clothing retain their properties longer when maintained and washed regularly. Dirty protective equipment or clothing are not merely unclean, but may lose their protective qualities or visibility. In such a case, they also constitute a safety risk.
Oil-based compounds, fumes and runoff are commonplace in industrial production, maintenance, service, and rescue missions. From the gear and protective equipment, harmful compounds are also extensively released into the environment. Conventional cleaning methods and equipment maintenance procedures fail to remove such compounds efficiently, and equipment maintenance in itself is a significant factor affecting overall exposure.
Study results indicate that the Hygio disinfection cabinet efficiently removes carcinogenic PAH compounds and makes cleaning easy and quick. Work clothing, footwear, helmets, safety gloves, and other protective equipment can be cleaned as they are, without disassembly. After the treatment, the goods are immediately ready for use.
With Hygio disinfection cabinets, annual cost savings in the order of tens of thousands of euros can be achieved, since soiled equipment marked for disposal can be returned to use. The disinfection cabinet can also be applied to disinfect protective clothing and equipment used in connection with visits to factories and production facilities.
For industrial use, we recommend the efficient Hygio a40 Medi disinfection cabinet.
