3 Benefits of a Reusable Face Cover

Covid-19 can spread when an infected individual coughs or sneezes. With a reusable face cover it helps to prevent the droplets from landing on surfaces as well as being inhaled by others. This is why it was recommended by the British Government that the public should wear face covers in confined areas such as public transport and when social distancing is difficult.

Reusable Face Covers

As face masks are in high demand, the British government has recommended that the public wear a reusable face cover instead of face masks, to help stop the spread of Covid-19.

1. How They Help to Protect You

Although face covers are there to protect others, it can also help protect you in a certain way. We have told time and time again since the beginning of the pandemic that we must wash our hands and not touch our face. This is sometimes easier said than done. Wearing a face cover helps you protect your face from your potentially infected hands as your mouth and nose are covered.

2. How They Help Protect Others

The main benefit of face covers is that it helps protect others. Although face covers won’t eliminate you catching the virus, it could prevent you spreading it to your family and friends. The idea is if everyone wore face covers in confined spaces, it will reduce cross-contamination. Some individuals are A-symptomatic and do not have the usual symptoms such as coughing. If you have Covid-19, but don’t realise it yet, wearing a face cover can help protect others from infection.

3. How Reusable Face Covers Saves The Planet

Face overs are recommended in Wales, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland in confined spaces. It is important to note that face covers can help protect the public, but only if it used correctly. You must clean face covers correctly in order to ensure it is most effective in protecting others. SafeFace (manufacturers of face covers) recommends that face covers are washed before use, as well as after each subsequent use of the mask.

Reusable face covers are sustainable and environmentally friendly as they are washable and saves landfill.

Make the conscious decision to protect the environment.  



We understand that every hospitality organisation is unique. Our guide is simply intended to prompt businesses to think about the responsibility each one of us has to reduce risk. Implementing specific measures within their own environment will help make their workplace safe. 

1. Risk Assessments

As an employer, you have a legal responsibility to safeguard your employees and others to ensure health and safety risks are minimal. You must all understand that it is impossible to completely eliminate the risk of COVID-19. One way to mitigate the risk is by undertaking a risk assessment to identify the risks associated with your individual premises and work activities.

Guidance regarding COVID-19 risk assessments can be found on the HSE website.

Obtain support from your workforce to identify the risks can be a great way to provide inclusion for your team and allow them to recognise the extents of the business efforts to safeguard there well-being. 

Some key areas to focus on to take into account when conducting a risk assessment: 

  • Increasing the frequency of hand washing and cleaning.
  • If it’s possible; encourage working from home. Where not possible, comply to social distancing guidelines.
  • Where social distancing is not possible, mitigate the risk to staff and others by enforcing the use of PPE and sanitisation. 
  • Where appropriate, use screens or barriers to separate people from each other. 
  • Where appropriate utilise one-way traffic systems for footfall
  • Ensure textiles within the workplace meet thermal decontamination and are determined ‘safe’ to use.

2. Hygiene

Good hygiene across all settings is vital to maintain the reduction of transmission. Ensure hand washing is always inline with government guidelines. 

Ensure professionally clean and safe workwear is provided to all employees to safeguard themselves and others. Take the responsibility away from the individual to ensure your business is as COVID-19 secure as possible. 

WHO is recommended a cotton textile to be used when drying hands after hand washing. Consider using individual face cloths as hand towels and have them professionally cleaned. 

3. Staff Protection

The most important thing to bare in mind when protecting your workforce is the routes of transmission. Work out what actions can be done to reduce high risk contact areas of your organisation. Improve ventilation by opening windows and doors, regularly sanitise the identified high risk areas whilst implementing a cleaning schedule. 

Ensure PPE is utilised across the organisation in the form of face covers, disposable aprons and gloves.

We’d highly recommend providing your team with workwear to facilitate changing onsite after every shift. 

4. Utilise COVID Secure Textiles

Operating a hospitality organisation in normal circumstances can be challenging. Balancing the operational requirements with customer expectations is always fun. Now we have the added responsibility regarding How to Make Hospitality Organisations COVID19 Secure. 

One way of reducing operational requirements and protecting the interests of your guests and organisation is to utilise a commercial laundry service. Why? A commercial laundry service has the facilities and processes in place to accommodate the decontaminating requirements the fluctuating demand of the hospitality industry. 

We ensure all textiles reach thermal and chemical decontamination to provide COVID secure textiles for use and remove the operational burden to clean large volumes. Most providers will provide a fixed cost per item which allows you to accurately cost your textile requirements and reduce your operational headaches. 

5. Look for Value

During these strange times, it would be sensible to review supply changes. Reflect on which suppliers have been supportive through the pandemic, and which providers has continually tried to financial crucify you through lockdowns. Ask yourself, are they truly a partner you want to work with? 

The answer will obviously be no. 

It’s easy to focus on the ‘white paper’ cost of a service. Are you really comparing red apples with red apples? Cheap is never cheerful, and cheap is never best value. 

It’s best value we should concentrate our efforts to achieve in a supply partner. Does your supplier deal with issues efficiently, or do they bury their heads and fail to respond? Do they deliver on time? Do they charge you for hidden fees? Is their reject rate unacceptable? 

We provide probably the best valued service in the industry to ensure your organisation works like clockwork and without hassle.
