Early on during the pandemic, PPE clothing quickly became scarce (and later with supply chain challenges, the crisis became far more noticeable).
Now, several different companies have been manufacturing both simple and advanced protective outfits that are reusable.
One company claims their PPE clothing can be laundered up to 100 times. The contents pros are looking at ones with built-in hoods, and elastic at the wrists and ankles.
Expect to see some of this reusable PPE equipment on specific jobs soon – one article reported that a group of just 5 hospitals were using over 3 million disposable garments a year (which amounted to 213 tons of medical waste).
We are willing to do our part to reduce waste on every job, in every possible way.
