Green GlovesHundreds of industries have joined in the struggle to “go green” by lowering their carbon footprint, using recycled materials, or reducing the amount of waste they produce. But can the disposable glove industry dream of joining them? Even though many green strategies can’t be used – the vast majority of nitrile gloves are definitely not recyclable and rarely reusable – glove manufacturers are still making great strides. Here’s how.

A great weapon in the war against bed bugs, ActiveGuardT mattress and box spring liners are patented, fitted covers proven to kill bed bugs within 72 hours after installation in both lab and real-life scenarios. This translates into no live bugs crawling around under you while you sleep. Since the active liner goes on the mattress or box spring in the same way as a fitted sheet, installation is significantly easier with no ripping or tearing. Cutting edge research demonstrates that within only 10 minutes of contact, bed bugs tend not to feed and females do not drop their eggs, resulting in fewer bites and significant population control.   Its continuous protection, easy installation and success rate make ActiveGuard a natural choice for PMPs, public health and housing agencies, shelters, universities, property managers, hotels and other transient lodging facilities.

But whether you’re a technician, a supervisor, or the boss, there’s no excuse for not using PPE when you face real hazards at work. PPE protects you from numerous dangers that you could face throughout a normal day of work.

Still, there are lots of bad reasons for not wearing PPE. Here are some of our favorites:

Excuse #1 (more…)

Pest control applications sometimes require more skin protection than just gloves, You may need disposable coveralls to shield your body, booties to cover your shoes, or protective sleeves for your arms.

For some pest control tasks, regular work clothing provides adequate personal protection, but for others, it’s simply not enough. Furthermore, clothing may hold or absorb a toxicant, physical irritant, pathogen, or allergen, resulting in (1) a longer exposure to the hazard for the wearer, and (2) the risk of carrying the hazard to other locations, even home. Those are two things you want to avoid.
