Safety in the Hospital beyond Occupational Footwear

Safety in the hospital is a constant concern for all health professionals and their patients. In addition to the use of appropriate occupational footwear, there are a loto f measures that must be taken to ensure a safe and secure environment.

In this article, we are going to address safety indicators, along with occupational footwear, for positive protection in hospital environments.

  1. Use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): In addition to occupational shoes, it is essential to use other PPE, such as gloves, masks, aprons and goggles, depending on the activities carried out. This equipment is essential to prevent exposure to chemicals and other hazards present in the surrounding environment.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
  2. Wash your hands: Proper hand hygiene is one of the most important measures to prevent the spread of infections. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, especially before and after contact with patients, contaminated surfaces and materials.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
  3. Prevent falls: Keep the environment clean and organized, avoiding obstacles along the way, use antislip footwear and pay attention to warning signs, such as wet or slippery surfaces.                                                              
  4. Handling Biological Materials: When handling biological materials such as blood and other body fluids, it is critical to follow safety protocols. Use appropriate containers to transport these materials.

We remind you that these tips are complementary to the use of appropriate occupational footwear, being essential to guarantee a safe clinical environment for everyone.
