Animal epidemics and treatment of animals with diseases
When treating sick animals or responding to an animal epidemic, it is of particular importance to wear appropriate PPE especially because of pathogens and the associated risk of infection being transmitted to humans and other animals. In such scenarios, a protection class FFP3 respirator should always be used. A respirator with carbon can be used to counteract any unpleasant odours (protection against gases and vapours under occupational exposure limits [OEL]). The respirator is therefore only intended for single use and must be correctly disposed of immediately after being removed. You can find product suggestions for this purpose below. Please ensure all appropriate and requisite personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn, as offered by uvex.
