Systematic Skin Care and Hand Hygiene

Prac­ti­cal con­cepts for hand hygiene and skin care are a basic pre­req­ui­site for avoid­ing ill­ness in all com­pa­nies. Pre­ven­tive mea­sures such as reg­u­lar hand wash­ing or dis­in­fec­tion, for exam­ple, reduce the risk of infec­tion among employ­ees and the asso­ci­at­ed absen­teeism. Not only do these mea­sures sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce the cur­rent spread of coro­n­avirus­es, they also com­bat the trans­mis­sion of oth­er pathogens, such as influen­za or noroviruses.

To ensure that occu­pa­tion­al skin expo­sure, which is already high in some cas­es, does not lead to skin dis­eases, the use of skin pro­tec­tion and skin care prod­ucts is impor­tant. PGP pro­vides sup­port not only in the selec­tion of suit­able prod­ucts, but also in the nec­es­sary accom­pa­ny­ing imple­men­ta­tion measures.

Hand Disinfection – The 4th Pillar of Occupational Skin Care

In the pan­dem­ic, hand dis­in­fec­tion has become sig­nif­i­cant­ly more impor­tant and has final­ly estab­lished itself as an inde­pen­dent pil­lar of occu­pa­tion­al skin care. There are numer­ous hand dis­in­fec­tants that dif­fer in some points, espe­cial­ly with regard to their effi­ca­cy or their skin com­pat­i­bil­i­ty. But not only the selec­tion of the appro­pri­ate hand dis­in­fec­tant is impor­tant for occu­pa­tion­al skin care.

The inter­ac­tion of the var­i­ous pil­lars with each oth­er, i.e. the opti­mal com­bi­na­tion of agents for skin pro­tec­tion, skin cleans­ing and skin care, is also cru­cial for the over­all con­cept. There­fore, PGP offers dif­fer­ent dis­in­fec­tants, suit­able for the respec­tive requirements.

Digital Services — Complement Personal Consultation

The need for infor­ma­tion with regard to the top­ics of occu­pa­tion­al skin care and hand hygiene is enor­mous. This trend has been fur­ther rein­forced by the Coro­na pan­dem­ic. In addi­tion to per­son­al con­sul­ta­tions, PGP offers a new dig­i­tal infor­ma­tion por­tal at www.hautschutzportal24.de to all inter­est­ed parties.

The web­site pro­vides rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion on the top­ics „occu­pa­tion­al skin care“ and „hand hygiene“. The skin care por­tal com­ple­ments PGP‘s dig­i­tal ser­vice offer­ing, which already includes the hand care plan con­fig­u­ra­tor www.handcareplan.com and the online train­ing tool www.hautschutzschulung.de.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, hautschutzportal24.de and hautschutzschulung.de are not avail­able in Eng­lish currently.

Dispensers — Practical Solutions for the Right Dosage

A suc­cess­ful occu­pa­tion­al skin care and hand hygiene con­cept also includes dis­pens­ing sys­tems. Dis­pensers do not only ensure the cor­rect dosage of hand dis­in­fec­tant, skin pro­tec­tion, skin cleans­ing and skin care prod­ucts. They must also be hygien­ic, eco­nom­i­cal, effec­tive and easy to use. Appro­pri­ate dis­penser solu­tions also lead users to use prod­ucts more regularly.

PGP offers dis­pensers for almost every appli­ca­tion: well-shaped dis­pensers made of met­al or plas­tic, with man­u­al or touch-free oper­a­tion, for 1- or 2‑liter bot­tles, floor or table stands or for wall mounting.

UV Protection — Important Component of Occupational Skin Care

Every year, offi­cial sta­tis­tics show a high pro­por­tion of occu­pa­tion­al skin dis­eases and skin can­cer caused by UV radi­a­tion in the total num­ber of con­firmed occu­pa­tion­al dis­eases. There­fore, occu­pa­tion­al skin care and espe­cial­ly occu­pa­tion­al UV pro­tec­tion are very impor­tant com­po­nents with regard to the pre­ven­tion of occu­pa­tion­al skin dis­eases. Pro­fes­sion­als should use pro­fes­sion­al prod­ucts for occu­pa­tion­al use.

When decid­ing on suit­able UV skin pro­tec­tion prod­ucts, per­fume-free and water-resis­tant prop­er­ties are par­tic­u­lar­ly rel­e­vant deci­sion-mak­ing cri­te­ria, in addi­tion to a high sun pro­tec­tion fac­tor. PGP offers an exten­sive prod­uct range of UV pro­tec­tion sprays, creams and lotions.

Naturally Sustainable

The top­ic of sus­tain­abil­i­ty has basi­cal­ly been impor­tant to Peter Greven since the very begin­ning, even if it has only been explic­it­ly named as such in recent years.

While eco­log­i­cal and eco­nom­ic goals in the area of sus­tain­abil­i­ty are already defined in qual­i­ta­tive terms, social goals still need to be pre­cise­ly defined. Ecol­o­gy, econ­o­my and social aspects are the three pil­lars of sus­tain­abil­i­ty – not just for PGP.
