RONCO GC-1000 Glove Dispenser Offers Reduction of Contamination or Infection in the Workplace

RONCO recommends the use of the GC-1000 glove dispensing unit in work applications where there is the need for preventing contamination or infection

While wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the most effective strategy for the prevention of cross-contamination or bacterial contamination in food or healthcare practices, RONCO recommends using a glove dispenser such as their GC-1000 as a good housekeeping measure and best practice for a clean and safe work environment.

The RONCO GC-1000 glove dispenser holds up to 150 disposable gloves and is made from food-grade approved polypropylene for easy cleaning at the end of every work shift. Easily mounted on the wall with stainless steel screws, the GC-1000 is a strong and rugged dispensing unit that is ideal for HAACP or ISO 22000-compliant environments such as food processing or preparation and other work environments that follow strict quality compliance measures, such as laboratory, beauty or healthcare. The unit is designed for single glove dispensing to reduce waste, is transparent for easy restocking and comes with labels to indicate glove size on the unit.

"Wearing gloves is only safe until the surface of the glove touches another object and just the act of donning a glove can contaminate them," explained RONCO President, Ron Pecchioli. "RONCO recommends using a glove dispenser for more than just convenience. When you consider all the hands that touch a box of disposable gloves and all the sources for recontamination that occur, the GC-1000 is a sensible preventive strategy in many food, clinical or industrial practices."

The Public Health Agency of Canada estimates that each year roughly one in eight Canadians will get sick with a domestically acquired food-borne illness. PPE tops the list of infection-prevention products worldwide - a market that is set to reach $130 billion globally by 2013. Matthew Shannon, RONCO product manager, says that inquiries for PPE dispensers has spiked.

"In their quest to adhere to global quality standards, businesses are implementing every measure possible to reduce the risk of contamination or infection, including the installation of various point-of-use dispensary methods." Mr. Shannon continued, "From individual packaging of PPE, to small wall mounted dispensing units, to large automated vending machines that operate with computerized inventory control systems - all these methods are designed to reduce the risk of food-, blood- and air-borne pathogens or hand-to-mouth spread of germs and bacteria."
