OCCUPATIONAL HYGIENE

Numerous studies worldwide point to a connection between the work of a fire fighter and the development of a large number of cancer types (NIOSH study). Any preventive measure of occupational hygiene within the fire service, however brief, is better than doing nothing and letting things rest.

CLEANING OF FIRE BRIGADE CLOTHING AND FACE MASKS

In cooperation with Diversey, we have cleaning products for cleaning fire brigade clothing, fire brigade gloves, face masks and also for the fire station. But turnout gear can also be cleaned with liquid CO2. Liquid CO2 penetrates into the deepest fibres of the exposed textile, loosening and removing the most harmful and toxic particles.

More information about the studies and tips for occupational hygiene in the fire service regarding the implementation of measures inside and outside the barracks? Please contact Paul Bertens at paul.bertens@hobrand.nl.
