With hands free operation for the user and insulated waste removal for the service person, exposure to dangerous pathogens is absolutely minimal.
Ontario, CA (PRWEB) March 2, 2011
Exposure to blood born pathogens and general restroom hygiene are major concerns for restroom patrons, service people, and facility managers. Feminine hygiene product disposal poses a significant potential for bacterial and viral transfer in public restroom environments.
The Janibell PRIVE’™ was designed specifically to address these exposure issues. The simple hands free operation features an infrared activation sensor to automatically open and close the waste collection door. During the product development stage, one research participant said: “I have three daughters and I have taught them all that they are not to touch the napkin disposal unit with their hands under any circumstances. They can use their feet if they have to. Who knows what those things are contaminated with.”
According to OSHA, in regards to sanitary napkin disposal, they “expect these products to be discarded into waste containers which are lined in such a way as to prevent contact with the contents…If OSHA determines, on a case-by-case basis, that sufficient evidence exists of reasonably anticipated exposure, the employer will be held responsible for providing the protections of 29 CFR 1910.1030 to the employees with occupational exposure.” Not only are there health and safety issues, but there is a growing legal concern for liability associated with disposal practices.
To protect the service worker, the Janibell continuous bag liner system means they never have to see, touch or smell the unit's contents. Each section of the liner is closed, cut and sealed without the contents of the bag being exposed.
“The PRIVE’™ sets a new standard for hygienic sanitary napkin disposal,” comments Bumkee Kim, company president. “With hands free operation for the user and insulated waste removal for the service person, exposure to dangerous pathogens is absolutely minimal.”
The PRIVE’™ was designed for use in both high and low traffic restrooms in office buildings, medical facilities, school dorms, athletic facilities, hotels, restaurants, airports, shopping centers and department stores. The elegant and compact wall-mount design fits in any restroom wall or partition.
