PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT
Safely remove throw-up and other body fluids on tables, floor or walls using OSHAKits.com Food Safety Spill Kit. “We often find that customers use a mop and bucket or any supplies on hand to respond to a cleanup,” says Owen Griffin, CFO of OSHAKits.com. “It’s an inconsistent approach and really increases the risk of cross-contamination.” The kit quickly, efficiently and reliably removes such potential biohazards as *Norovirus, E. coli* and Salmonella. The kit contains all the components needed to clean solids and liquids from a contaminated area. Head-to-toe personal protection covers the employee performing the task, single-use scrapers and dustpans handle the solids, a variety of sprays and wipes finish off the cleaning (which is left to air dry) then everything is safely tossed out in double trash bags. “The kit is organized for fast response when seconds count,” adds Griffin. “Once a cleanup is complete, the entire contents of the kit are thrown away. None of the kit components are reused for future use, again reducing the risk of cross contamination in supply closets.” All the sprays are safe for food contact surfaces without the need to rinse the surface afterward and offer a 30-sec. kill time. The kit includes 2 complete single-use sets; bilingual instructions come with step-by-step images.
