Reduce Staph Infections Where the Equipment and Gear is Stored
The sports world has more in common with the medical world than you might think. Players involved in close physical contact are susceptible to frequent injuries including cuts, turf burns and blisters, which can all lead to dangerous staph infections. Now, in a hospital you have extremely strict cleaning rules to help reduce the chance that a nurse or patient will contract a staph infection. The problem is that the locker rooms and equipment rooms in athletic facilities – where the players store their gear, towels, and clothes – are not held to the same high standards as medical facilities, even though both places take care of injured people. If you are wondering where to begin to reduce staph infections, you can start with stainless steel modular casework.
Stainless Steel Modular Casework is Used More Than You Think
You might not think about casework outside the context of an office, but perhaps you should. Stainless steel casework is used in place of built-in cabinets, storage shelving, work surfaces, fixtures, benches, and more in most industries that are at high risk for infections. This casework is used because it helps maintain the best hygiene standards possible. Perhaps it is time to recognize that athletic facilities are just as high risk for staph infections as hospitals and hold them to the same high standards of cleanliness.
If you are wondering why stainless steel, it’s because the surface is non-porous, which means that germs, viruses, and bacteria cannot get into the furniture. This also makes stainless steel easy to clean and keep clean. Stainless steel casework is also an economical choice because it stands up very well to constant use.
Where to Use Stainless Steel Casework in Athletic Facilities
Stainless steel casework can be used in a variety of places in athletic facilities. Here are just a few ideas of where:
- Work Benches
- Training Tables
Protecting your players and employees from staph infections when they are handling equipment, gear, and uniforms is easy with stainless steel casework. These areas need to be treated like medical facilities where excellent hygiene is a must, and with stainless steel casework you can accomplish that very important goal.
