Medical waste disposal
The disposal of medical waste often involves unspecified substances and potentially contaminated syringes or other waste. Bacteria, spores and viruses may be contained in the waste, meaning that it is essential to wear a protection class FFP3 respirator. A respirator with carbon can be used to counteract any unpleasant odours (protection against gases and vapours under occupational exposure limits [OEL]). 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.
The suggested products listed below carry general, non-specific recommendations. For a detailed product analysis, please refer to our guide to help choose the right mask for your requirements: Basic knowledge/correct choice
