HOW TO WORK SAFELY IN SPECIFIC SITUATIONS, INCLUDING WHERE PPE MAY BE REQUIRED:
Reference to PPE in the following situations means:
fluid-resistant surgical face masks
disposable plastic aprons
Where PPE is recommended, this means that:
a facemask should be worn if a distance of 2 metres cannot be maintained from someone with symptoms of coronavirus
if physical contact is necessary, then gloves, an apron and a facemask should be worn
if a risk assessment determines that there is a risk of fluids entering the eye from, for example, coughing, spitting or vomiting, then eye protection should also be worn
When PPE is used, it is essential that it is used properly. This includes scrupulous hand hygiene and following guidance on how to put PPE on and take it off safely in order to reduce self-contamination.
Face masks must:
cover both nose and mouth
not be allowed to dangle around the neck
not be touched once put on, except when carefully removed before disposal
be changed when they become moist or damaged
be worn once and then discarded – hands must be cleaned after disposal
