Question Title

* 1. The limited availability of PPE during the COVID pandemic lead to quality and safety issues in terms of European standards for the manufacturing and use of PPE. Some of the key issues identified include:

·        The quality and size availability of PPE

·        The procedures and ease of donning and doffing PPE

·        The materials used to address safety (barriers to contamination)

·        Comfort and practicality to carry out the role

Are you, as a supplier, addressing any of the above issues? If so, and you would like to share your products and processes with the NO-FEAR practitioners, please provide details here.

Question Title

* 2. PPE gives a sense of "depersonalization" both for the Health Care Worker as well as the beneficiaries. NO-FEAR and its networks have identified some strategies used to address this:

·        "Personalization of the PPE" – writing your name and role on the PPE, Attaching your picture to the PPE.

·        Requesting "coloured PPE" by function "normally used" in Health Care (e.g. blue or green).

·        Transparent facemasks could be made available (to be followed up). These masks are especially important while communicating with persons who have a hearing impairment (who assist themselves by lip reading).

Are you, as a supplier, addressing this issue utilising any of the proposed strategies mentioned above or an alternative strategy? If so, and you would like to share your products and processes with the NO-FEAR practitioners, please provide details here.

Are you, as a supplier, addressing the issue of increased production and usage of disposable PPE? If so, and you would like to share your products and processes with the NO-FEAR practitioners, please provide details here.
