INTRODUCING THE LID LIFTA:
HANDS-FREE OPEN/CLOSE BIN LID
World Health Organisation (WHO) latest notifications indicate that it is advisable to “…either sneeze or cough into a flexed elbow or use a tissue. If you use a tissue you should dispose of it immediately into a closed bin…” https://youtu.be/bPITHEiFWLc 00:42
Touching the lid of a closed bin may facilitate the spread of the virus:
The NSW Department of Health states:
“…Studies suggest that coronaviruses (including preliminary information on the COVID-19 virus) may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days..”
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control states:
“…The virus enters your body via your eyes, nose and mouth, so avoid touching them with unwashed hands...” https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/novel-coronavirus-china/questions-answers
In many professions and work situations it is not feasible to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water each and every time you open the lid of a bin. The Lid Lifta® foot pedal bin eliminates the need to touch the bin every time it is opened and/or closed. The Lid Lifta® is an effective tool in limiting cross-contamination, including the Corona Virus COVID-19.
The Lid Lifta® foot pedal bin has been specifically designed and manufactured in Australia for industrial use and has been utilised successfully for over 24 years in a range of commercial and medical situations where hygiene is paramount.
