The coronavirus is a topic that is on everyone’s mind. Taking measures to prevent the spread of the virus is vital to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of those in all of our communities. This involves the work of every company, manager, and employee. One question that has arisen is if there an increase risk due to processing aluminum cans. While the typical PPE, especially puncture resistant gloves, will provide basic protection, keep in mind that these are also surfaces that need to be cleaned on a regular basis. In fact, PPE such as face shields and protective eyewear should be cleaned frequently due to the close proximity of an infection pathway (the eyes). While you are cleaning the PPE, don’t forget the handles of tools, equipment controls, the pen that everyone uses to sign in with, etc.
