Colour-coded gloves reduce the threat of cross contamination

25 June 2017

Globus has launched I-CON, a colour-coded glove system designed to offer enhanced chemical protection for workers undertaking cleaning and hygiene tasks in the food sector. 

The new I-CON glove system not only protects workers’ hands against the most common chemicals and substances used during cleaning regimes but also helps prevent contact contamination from bacteria.
All gloves in the I-CON system are manufactured from nitrile. Every glove is CAT III certified in accordance with the EN374-1 chemical resistance standard while cross contamination threats in infection control areas are reduced because of the colour system – with individual coloured gloves designated for specific work areas.
There are eight I-CON system gloves – four single-use, four re-usable which follow the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc) approved and adopted colour-coded system for infection control using:
• Red for sanitary appliances and washroom areas.
• Green for general food and drink areas.
• Blue for general areas excluding washrooms and clinical areas.
• Yellow for clinical, treatment and isolation areas.
To support the EN compliant range, Globus can also provide tailored support packages to aid the implementation of the I-CON system.
