To clean ZERO fall protection equipment, please follow the instructions provided in the technical notice for each product. We recommend you follow the appropriate health authority for guidance in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19.

 

When should I wash my PPE?


You should clean your PPE periodically. We strongly recommend using your own PPE only. DO NOT share PPE with others during any stage of COVID-19 outbreak.

 

What temperature should I clean my PPE at?


You can use any temperature (up to 35 degrees Celsius) of water to wash your PPE. We recommended using warm soapy water on ZERO webbing products. Cold water and warm water both kill germs and viruses as long as you use a mild detergent.

 

What products can I clean my PPE with?


Use on approved cleaners and mild detergents (including soapy water). Wash with a soft non-abrasive brush or sponge. ZERO Height Safety approves the use of GERMSHIELD BioShield® 75 as a light application as per the manufacturer’s instruction. This excludes working parts of retractable fall arrest devices. BioShield® is an antimicrobial sanitizer that inhibits the growth of bacteria, viruses, mold, fungi and other microorganisms.

 

Do I need to dry my PPE?


Germs spread more easily from wet surfaces. Drying your PPE completely is an important step. After cleaning your PPE, leave in the shade to air dry.
