Reopening the world in the wake of a pandemic brings new health and safety concerns. Much of the emphasis has been on personal hygiene, such as hand washing, social distancing, and face covering. But as industries begin to open, a new normal awaits them where personal hygiene must extend to shared work surfaces.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends regular cleaning of your frequently touched surfaces. Maintenance technicians, electricians, and others who share tools need to understand and follow safe cleaning and sanitization procedures. This includes test tools, such as multimeters and electrical testers, as well as personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves and shields.
In this video, Fluke product application specialist Sean Silvey shares the do’s and don’ts for how to clean, disinfect, and care for your Fluke tools.
