SERVPRO Personal Protective Equipment By ensuring their own safety, our team members are better able to ensure your safety and the safety of your home or business!

When SERVPRO of North Columbiana county goes out for a job our number one concern is safety: the safety of our clients and the safety of our employees. Whether it is a flooding job with possibly contaminated water, mold remediation, or a possible COVID-19 sanitization job, we keep our customers and employees as safe as possible. Each job comes with its own safety concerns and specific personal protective equipment or PPE is required. To make sure the job is done right, employees need to take proper precautions when working in specific situations.

Our professionals at SERVPRO are given the proper training and personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure they are prepared to safely handle each one of those incidents and a wide range of others. They follow specific guidelines laid out by our company and by the National Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Some examples of PPE you may see our employees wearing:

Tyvek Suits and Booties: They are made of a strong, but lightweight material that can protect a person from contaminants in the air. These suits cover a person from head to toe (except the face).

Dust Masks: They are lightweight masks worn around the nose and mouth to keep out less serious contaminants like typical, household dust.

Full Face Masks: These are more heavy-duty, plastic masks, seal off the entire face and include respirators. These are used in more dangerous conditions. The respirators filter out any harmful airborne pathogens and mold spores.

Gloves: Different kinds of gloves are used depending on the situation. Nitrile gloves are used to protect from certain contaminants like bodily fluids. Whereas stronger rubber gloves are used to protect when handling sharp or rough objects.

Goggles: They are used to protect the eyes in dangerous conditions.

Hard Hats: They are used to protect employees in situations where there is a risk of building collapse or falling debris.

By ensuring their own safety in the field, our team members are better able to ensure your safety and the safety of your home or business.
