The personal protective equipment (PPE) plays a major role in worker protection, for instance when treating patients with transmissible diseases.
Only carful handling of the personal protective equipment offers effective protection against infections. Especially the removal of PPE can lead to the contamination of clothes or of the body.
Hence, we prepared descriptive infographics which illustrate how to put on and take off your personal protective equipment. You can choose between a poster depicting the handling of FFP-masks or a poster showing the handling of surgical masks.
Depending on the pathogen and the respective transmission path, different components of the PPE are recommended by the KRINKO.
The following overview illustrates which pathogens require which face mask. A detailed list can be found here.
