Showcasing Sustainable PPE Innovation for our NHS
We are excited to announce that Tecman is exhibiting at England’s premier NHS procurement event – P4H England, at the NEC, Birmingham on 15th September 2021, taking place as a hybrid event, both in person and online.
We invite you to visit us on stand 34 where we will be showcasing our most recent sustainable PPE innovation – Optec™ Reusable Face Shield System. Made from cleanable biomaterial technology, Optec™ reduces the use of plastic by 90%, having been designed alongside the NHS as a sustainable solution to help meet carbon reduction targets. The products compact packing reduces packaging waste by over 50% compared to alternatives, which in turn cuts shipping weight by 80%, reducing transport emissions.
Our commitment to providing sustainable solutions resonates with NHS healthcare workers across the board. Results from our recent survey showed 90% of the 156 primary and secondary care clinicians surveyed communicated growing concern about the environmental impact of PPE, as well as other concerns such as poor fit and fogging of eyewear.
This user feedback is a critical component within our design process, Optec™, like every product line within our portfolio is underpinned by Four Pillars of Comfort:
Comfort – ergonomically designed for optimal all day comfort using skin friendly, medical grade materials.
Performance - Optec is equally effective at providing protection from spray and droplets as single-use products and is fully EN 166:2001 certified when using the impact resistant screen.
Sustainability – Optec makes use of reusable bioplastic made from trees, is more compact and more effectively shipped.
Cost - Cost competitive with imported alternatives, we’re breaking the perceived link between quality and cost. NHS organisations no longer have to choose between budget, staff protection, and protecting the planet.
Optec provides procurement professionals with a choice that meets both organisation-wide carbon reduction goals and departmental/product cost constraints.
Find out more about how Optec™ supports carbon reduction targets by booking your complementary ticket here and visiting our stand, either online or in person.
We look forward to seeing you there!
