OSHAKits.com Launches Eco-Friendly Body Fluid Spill Kits
The new Eco-Friendly Body Fluid Spill Kit from OSHAKits.com allows foodservice establishments to comply with state and local food codes while also achieving corporate sustainability goals.
“Beyond a keen focus on efficacy against foodborne illnesses like norovirus, the most common request we’ve heard from food safety managers is their desire for us to reduce the amount of plastic being thrown away with kits after an incident,” says Owen Griffin, Business Development Manager at OSHAKits.com. “We’re proud that our Eco-Friendly Body Fluid Spill Kit allows our customers to protect their employees and guests while also adhering to corporate-wide objectives related to sustainability and the environment.”
The new, single-use Eco-Friendly Body Fluid Spill Kit, which is 85 percent decomposable, is designed to be completely disposable, helping to eliminate the potential for cross-contamination. These kits also contain a specially engineered set of coated, long-handled cardboard scrapers, mop heads, and a closable waste pan sturdy enough to safely collect solidified and sanitized body fluids and broken glass.
In addition, each Eco-Friendly Body Fluid Spill Kit contains a single-use bottle of PURELL® Foodservice Surface Sanitizer, which holds the EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE) certification, to disinfect spills and surfaces. Out of the 3,000 EPA-registered surface disinfectants and sanitizers, fewer than 100 have the EPA’s Category IV lowest toxicity rating, and of those, fewer than 10 have the DfE certification. PURELL® Surface Disinfecting and Sanitizing products have the fastest overall disinfection times for bacteria and viruses, more than any other DfE product.
The FDA Model Food Code states that food establishments that serve or sell food, even packaged food, shall have written procedures for employees to follow when responding to a body fluid incident to reduce the risk of norovirus and other pathogens contaminating surfaces. OSHAKits.com’s products and training materials make compliance easy. The Eco-Friendly Body Fluid Spill Kit offers compliance with a smaller environmental impact.
To learn more about these industry-leading kits, foodservice organizations can call OSHAKits.com at 800-270-0153 to schedule a presentation and demonstration by representatives from both OSHAKits.com and GOJO.
