FACE MASKS (3-PLY, KN95, OR CLOTH) AND HEPA FILTERS
3-ply face masks and filters protect against the spread of bacteria and viruses. The facemasks are soft, sterile, and easy to use, and the filters include a bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) of 95%.
Hand sanitizer, soap, and dispensers
For the personal safety of all your employees, be sure to encourage and enforce proper hand washing and hygiene etiquette. The CDC recommends washing hands for at least 20 seconds after handling or touching any public surface or item during this time. If soap is not readily available, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol can be used for quick sanitation purposes. Having several hand sanitizer and handwashing stations throughout your workplace is an appropriate step to enforcing hygiene. We supply hand soaps, lotions, skin wipes, sanitizer dispensers, and hand sanitizers to get you through these challenging times.
Disinfectant spray, wipes, and other antibacterial cleaners
Keeping surfaces clean is an effective way to reduce the spread of germs. When it comes to cleaning your office space, you’ll want to invest in disinfectant products like sprays, wipes, and antibacterial cleaners. We currently have several options in stock that can help you ensure your business space is clean, sanitary, and free of contaminants.
Nitrile gloves are made from an allergy-safe compound that feels like latex but is stronger, costs less, and is more comfortable to wear. These gloves are perfect for cleaning the office, handling cash or other heavily-used items, and interacting with high-touch areas. In-stock quantity is incredibly limited at this time – review our list of products to see what is currently available.
Non-contact infrared or digital thermometers
One of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses is to request that employees to stay home if they are feeling unwell. You may also wish to implement regular temperature checks for all employees if you work in a large office space or an industry with many high-touch contact areas. Our digital infrared thermometers have you covered – they’re simple to use and non-contact.
With extra sanitation and cleaning efforts throughout your office space, you’ll also want to have a steady supply of paper towels on hand. Our online store offers a selection of paper products, including paper products made from recycled materials.
Antimicrobial pens and other antimicrobial office supplies
Lastly, you’ll also want to stock up on all the usual office supplies your office needs, especially if the stock was running low before your company shut down. From notepads and printer paper to pens and everything in between, these products are essential for a productive and efficient workday upon your return. For added peace of mind and security, choose products that also have antimicrobial properties to stave off bacteria-causing illness.
Garbage bags, waste containers, and recycling containers will be particularly essential in the early days of reopening. Encourage employees to follow proper waste disposal procedures to prevent germs from spreading. As always, be kind to Mother Earth by recycling office supplies and other waste that are recyclable.
Your newly returned employees will appreciate one return to normal – morning coffee! Be sure to stock up on the cups, stir sticks, dispensers, coffee filters, and more to ensure everyone starts their day back in the office on the right foot.
