In March, OSHA released a 35 page document with Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19 that includes recommendations to employers about how to create a safe workplace for employees and customers.
Initially, Essential businesses scrambled to find the appropriate PPEs (Personal Protective Equipment) to keep the workplace safe but the items they needed were nowhere to be found. Suppliers, unprepared for the increased demand, also scrambled to find alternative sources to fulfill the need.
Store shelves emptied as masks, bandannas and hand sanitizers were gobbled up by the general public. Thousands of home-made masks and face-covers started to be offered on Instagram, Facebook and Etsy to fill the void. Even recipes for making your own hand sanitizer circulated around the internet.
I personally witnessed a mother at the grocery store asking for the largest, cheapest bottle of vodka to make her own hand sanitizer for her family.
We’ve Got You Covered!
In response to the high demand for PPEs for businesses to create a safe workplace, Markit has assembled over 500 PPE related products for business owners and managers to find every solution to their unique business COVID safety requirements all in one place.
Of course, we have masks (over 130 to choose from) but we also assembled a selection of distancing barriers, infrared thermometers, coronavirus safety signs, social distancing floor decals, hand sanitizers, sanitizing wipes, UV light device sanitizers and bandannas. Basically, we think we have thought of everything a business will need for workplace safety.
A Brand-New Opportunity?
In 2009, during the first season of the hit TV show ‘Shark Tank‘, the investors were presented with an opportunity to buy into a business of custom printed surgical masks. All 5 Sharks passed on the idea in 2009 but if they were presented with the opportunity in January of 2020 I’m sure the outcome would have been very different.
Of course, we’re a branding company so we see the opportunity for businesses to prominently display their company logo, slogan or positive message. PPEs are viewed hundreds of times daily on every face in public, every retail floor and every entrance to every business the public visits.
It’s amazing how fast PPEs have become necessary in our daily life and in the operation of our businesses. With the introduction of new products with such high visibility, businesses are now presented with the opportunity to utilize this space as an effective marketing tool.
