PPE for Covid-19

Where there is a need for protection against the risk of coronavirus infection First Aiders should consider wearing apron, gloves, visor (or goggles) and a face mask. They should be put on in the following order following a thorough hand wash or at very least hand sanitising where washing facilities do not exist.

  1. 1.Apron

  2. 2.Mask

  3. 3.Visor

  4. 4.Gloves

Following use they should be removed in the following order:

  1. 1.Gloves

  2. 2.Apron

  3. 3.Visor

  4. 4.Mask

PPE should be safely disposed of and hands washed after use.

In the absence of full PPE risks can be reduced by wearing a face covering and asking the casualty to also wear a face covering, wearing gloves if available and reducing contact with the casualty as much as possible.
