CHICAGO, May 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OSHAKits.com, a leading national provider of food safety spill kits, announced today ahead of the 2017 National Restaurant Association Show that it has developed OSHAKits.com™ Food Safety Spill Kits, a food safety and bloodborne pathogen spill kit, with GOJO, the inventors of PURELL® Hand Sanitizer and the global leader in hygiene solutions.
The premium clean-up kits are designed to meet the requirements for biohazard spills involving vomit, blood, feces and other potentially infectious body fluids. The nucleus of each kit is PURELL® Foodservice Surface Sanitizer, which is formulated to kill norovirus in 30 seconds, and the hospital-grade absorbent solidifier manufactured by Northfield Medical Manufacturing, LLC, parent of OSHAKits.com.
"This new spill kit will set the standard for the foodservice industry," said Carter Smith, COO, OSHAKits.com. "With a focus on quickly killing foodborne pathogens and ease of use, restaurant workers will be able to effectively clean and sanitize infected areas."
Two complete, single-use food safety kits will be packaged together in a wall-mountable plastic case for easy access by foodservice employees. They are available directly from OSHAKits.com or through a network of national and regional distributors.
Most states have adopted the US Food Code rules for responding to contamination events in order to prevent outbreaks of foodborne illnesses, including norovirus. OSHAKits.com™ Food Safety Spill Kits featuring PURELL® Foodservice Surface Sanitizer include the required written procedures, single-use clean-up tools, and specific protocols for foodservice employees to follow to minimize the contamination risk associated with body fluid events.
OSHAKits.com™ Food Safety Spill Kits featuring PURELL® Foodservice Surface Sanitizer, which is formulated for food contact surfaces and kills norovirus, Salmonella and E. coli in 30 seconds, offer a compelling set of features for national foodservice companies including:
- Medical-Grade Solidifier: Gels up to three liters of vomit, blood and other body fluids in 30 seconds
- Quick Access PPE: Separately-packaged "PPE Packs" within kits for easy access when seconds count
- System-Wide Implementation Aids: Bilingual and video instructions accessed by smartphones
- Eco-Friendly SKUs: Several kits specifically designed to minimize landfill footprint with greater than 90% comprised of biodegradable and/or recycled material
"By working with GOJO, we can deliver a superior food safety spill kit solution to foodservice organizations," added Smith. "PURELL® Foodservice Surface Sanitizer represents the best solution for neutralizing contamination risk associated with norovirus, E. coli and other pathogens. OSHAKits.com is proud to have a trusted brand represented in its latest kit."
