Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
SERVPRO of Ocala strives to make sure all our production professionals are well equipped when responding to biohazard problems like sewage and mold. Sometimes the area and amount of the hazardous material is so large and vast that PPE or Personal Protective Equipment is needed and worn. The suites, gloves, eye protection and masks are not easy to put on, so SERVPRO professionals help one another with the equipment. Making sure suits are not torn, and gloves and foot coverings can sometimes be taped for added protection are the responsibility of each person to look after the other. Its important as well that adequate Air and Water be available as the suites get very hot and stuffy. Safety is top of mind that is why many times a Safety Officer or Supervisor is there to watch out for the technicians.
