Getting the right skin care regime for your workforce is often overlooked as one of the most important steps in making sure your workers have healthy skin and are able to carry out their tasks.
The correct products will both clean and protect the users skin and promote balanced and healthy skin conditions.
At PK Safety we recommend using the Peter Greven range of soaps and skin care products.
Peter Greven products are designed and manufactured for the workplace and with gentle, balanced skin care as the primary objective.
The range has products for the 3 essential stages of a good skin care system: Protect; Cleanse and Restore.
Before starting their shift workers should was their hands and then use a barrier cream to create a breathable protective layer on their hands. This will protect the workers hands from contact with liquids and also help prevent sweating when wearing gloves. Both sweating and prolonged contact with moisture will lead to contact dermatitis and other skin conditions.
Throughout the shift workers should be able to clean their hands when necessary. It’s important that they use a soap that suits their working conditions and the level of dirt or contaminant they come in contact with. The soaps from the Greven range covers light to extreme contamination. Each option is carefully constructed with gentle surfactants, the heavy-duty options use olive seed powder as eco-friendly scrubbing agents. You can see more details on each soap option in the Greven range here.
At the end of the shift workers should clean their hands and then apply a restorative moisturiser to ensure that the natural oils and moisture are restored and maintained.

To help operatives follow the correct skin care process we can provide skin care boards that clearly lay out each step and why the operatives should do each stage. These boards also have the products on to make it easy to learn and use.
