Safetec Universal Precaution Compliance Kit: Safe, Effective Removal and Disposal of Blood or Body-Fluid Spills

If you’re looking for a kit that offers personal protection along with OSHA-, CDC-, and State Health Department-Mandated clean-up items, then the Safetec Universal Precaution Compliance Kit is the choice for you.

Ideal for cleaning, transporting, and disposing of infectious blood or body-fluid spills, the kit is equipped with an apron, safety mask, and vinyl gloves, all of which are used to shield you from infections and other hazards during cleanup efforts. The Red Z® solidifier works excellently with the SaniZide Plus® disinfectant wipe: The former is used to harden spilled blood or other bodily fluids to allow for easy, safe disposal into the 24” by 24” red biohazard waste bag, which is included with the kit. The latter is then used to sanitize and disinfect the contaminated surface.

The Safetec Universal Precaution Compliance Kit can be utilized as an effective pandemic-response kit; simply consolidate all contaminated materials, deposit them into the red biohazard bag, and then seal it up with the proper identification tag attached, and then dispose of it per all applicable local, state, and federal regulations. Additionally, this safe, effective, and easy-to-use kit includes a scoop/scraper, twist tie, and instructions. 

Take a look at the video below for five steps for containing and removing a bloodborne pathogens spill by using the Safetec Universal Precaution Compliance Kit:

The Under Armour Women’s ¼ Zip Job Shirt Has All You Need and More

At last, the first women’s-specific job shirt of its kind, the Under Armour (UA) Women’s ¼ Zip Job Shirt, has arrived and has garnered overwhelmingly positive feedback from female first responders. Featuring a practical blend of comfort and style, it is made of UA’s unique Charged Cotton®. It offers a flattering, form-fitting cut, and its Princess seams create a slimmer, more streamlined silhouette than job shirts that were made specifically for men.

We interviewed Volunteer Firefighter, EMT, and TheFireStore employee Amanda G. to learn about how the UA Women's ¼ Zip Job Shirt functions in the field, so be sure to take a look at her in-depth feedback on our TheFireStore blog post.

The UA ¼ Zip Job Shirt is loaded with useful features: Extra side-stow pockets allow ample storage space for safely securing all job-related equipment, while a radio clip situated on the shoulder gives immediate, easy access when needed. No need to worry about accommodating your microphones; use straps that attach to microphone holders for that, and utilize the conveniently located left-arm pen pocket to store your writing utensils. Be sure to utilize our innovative, easy-to-use Build-It. See-It. Buy-It. tool in order to add custom embroidery to your UA Women’s ¼ Zip Job Shirt.

Regardless of where you choose to wear it, either at home or at work, you can be assured that you will enjoy the same high level of comfort. Its lightweight stretch construction increases overall mobility, which gives you an unhindered, full range of motion. Additionally, it offers extra protection to several key areas: The drop-tail hem gives excellent back coverage, while multiple-layered, reinforced elbow patches effectively protect sensitive areas.
