Avian influenza protective equipment

 Avian influenza is a contagious viral disease that affects birds and poultry and can also be transmitted to humans. The protective equipment from Franz Mensch offers you optimum protection against avian flu - for carefree working.

How is avian influenza transmitted?

Avian influenza is transmitted in the same way as other influenza viruses. As a rule, it is spread by droplet infection as soon as infected droplets enter the inhaled air. The viruses attach themselves to the cells of the respiratory tract. Since faecal particles can be deposited on work clothing, there is an increased risk of infection in animals.

The following facilities and workplaces are particularly at risk:

  • Agriculture

  • Veterinary Medicine

  • Healthcare

  • Transport companies

  • Feed production

  • Disposal company

How to protect yourself from avian influenza

People who are in regular contact with animals must place special emphasis on adequate protection. This is especially true for those who work in poultry farming, meat processing or veterinary medicine. In order to minimise the high risk of infection, wearing the right protective clothing is of utmost importance in addition to strict hygiene measures.

That is why Franz Mensch and the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health recommend, among other things, the following protective equipment:
