Healthcare Respiratory Protection: How Covid-19 Highlighted the Need for Superior Safety

Healthcare workers have taken on a lot in the past year and a half. In this episode, Editor Sydny Shepard sits down with Dentec Safety's Claudio Dente to discuss how the pandemic led to a creation of superior respiratory protection.

Because they can be exposed to dangerous viruses in and outside of work, healthcare workers have been facing increased likelihood of contracting Covid-19 since March of 2020. Issues in the supply chain limiting necessary PPE, increases in contagious patients and new rules that allow healthcare workers to reuse disposable face coverings and respirators have not made things easy for those on the front lines helping to protect our most vulnerable during this pandemic.

In this episode, I am bringing you a conversation I had with Claudio Dente, the President and Co-Founder of Dentec Safety Specialists all about the plights healthcare workers have faced in the last year and a half, how federal regulatory agencies are trying to increase protections and what manufacturers in the safety industry are doing to help.

Claudio has been in the Occupational Health & Safety Industry for over 40 years and has dedicated his career and business to providing the highest quality safety products and solutions delivering enhanced value and comfort. His expertise and experience in industrial safety and innovated design technologies have solidified him as a leader in this field. He and his wife Judy Dente co-founded Dentec Safety in 2004. What started off as a small family run business, has grown quickly, built on the foundation of relationships and accessibility which Dentec continues to keep at the center of its business model.
