Facemasks for Employees?

Post by aturrell » Wed Apr 08, 2020 9:59 am

This conversation is from a thread between MAPP members on the topic of whether or not they have facemasks for their employees right now. Please share your experience and thoughts below!

[Original Question]
I have a new question on PPE. Have face masks been implemented for all employees at your facilities yet? We are trying but there is resistance as well as the cost of having face masks for all employees every day. Thoughts?

Yes we have implemented facemasks for all employees in the facility, office included. However, we are NOT using N95 masks. We are using homemade or basic surgical masks.

At our company we were able to secure non- N-95 facemasks and passed them out to employee and said that they could wear them on a voluntary basis. Some employees have made there own and some have found some industrially made masks. It is very difficult to get masks and it is hard to believe that in a time when hospitals cannot get them for their staff that we should be competing for them against the hospital workers.

We have implemented a face mask policy for the whole facility. We were able to get reusable cotton masks on Amazon. Although the site shows late April to early May delivery, we received enough for each employee within a few days of ordering and have placed additional orders. We are allowing employees to bring their own masks, if preferred, and are providing materials for DIY masks. Our employees have complied without complaint.
