Fusion PPE Helps Schools Plan to Safely Reopen in the Fall and Resume In-Person Instruction
After concluding months of online learning, administrators of schools across the country are working tirelessly to prepare to reopen and return to in-person instruction in the fall. Fusion PPE developed and shared its product methodology, “Pathway to Protection” (PTP) for schools to assist with these plans. This specific PTP looks at areas of vulnerability in schools and how to best protect students and faculty from them.
The “Pathway to Protection” breaks the school day into curricular and non-curricular sections to look more closely at each part of the day. This pathway is a diagnostic tool illustrating how the Coronavirus could spread from student drop off, to lockers, to after school activities, and everything in between. Next, Fusion PPE compiles a list of necessary personal protective equipment, like the Orbel™ Personal Hand Sanitizing Device, to safeguard teachers, students, and staff throughout the day.
The Orbel is an excellent solution for schools to protect their students as it sanitizes hand areas linked to cross-contamination in an instant. Furthermore, it is always accessible as it conveniently attaches to the students’ lanyards, pockets, backpacks, or belt loops as they go from class to class. Studies have shown that ‘compliance usage’ lowers infection rates.
As part of their planning, The Shipley School, located in Bryn Mawr, PA, is supplying the Orbel™ Personal Hand Sanitizing Device to faculty, staff, and students. Special thanks to The Shipley School for being proactive in its plans and making safety a top priority in the school. This proactive, thoughtful planning is a comfort to all of those involved in the Shipley community.
What is The Orbel?
Fusion PPE’s exclusive Orbel™ Personal Hand Sanitizing Device is an optimal PPE product for students because it clips onto your person. To see how easy it is to use, please visit our website with a video tutorial of the Orbel here.
The Orbel disperses sanitizer gel through a set of roller balls killing 99.9% of bacteria. The device releases the perfect amount of hand sanitizer, without excess, in order to quickly disinfect your hands on the go. It is designed for natural hand movements so you can clean your hands throughout the day without interrupting your daily tasks.
The CDC advises schools to reinforce and encourage frequent hand washing and to provide hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol wherever possible. The Orbel gel contains 72 percent alcohol, exceeding the CDC recommendation of disinfectant.
