Safetex Laundry Bag is a reusable, self-opening laundry bag, designed for the collection of heavily soiled and infected linen.
Safetex has unique welded seams to ensure the bag is totally fluid and odour-proof.
Once the Safetex bag is safely inside the washing machine the bag naturally opens. The natural opening minimises manipulation of the bag and prevents exposure of staff to the infectious linen prior to decontamination as per
5.31 Dept of Health CFPP, Decontamination of Linen for Health and Social Care: Management and Provision
In the future, easy-emptying bags or automatic bag opening equipment may offer an alternative to water-soluble bags in Option 2. If easy-emptying bags or an automated procedure is adopted, a bag handling procedure should be used that:
• minimises manipulation of the bag and prevents exposure of staff to the infectious linen prior to decontamination;
• is fully automated for washer loading;
• incorporates equipment that is capable of being adequately disinfected
• requires any outer bag to be decontaminated before disposal or reuse.
Safetex bags are environmentally friendly and a cost-effective alternative to single-use disposable red bags, with a lifespan that can withstand multiple processing.
Available in Blue or Green (for delicate items that cannot withstand a boil wash), Red (for infected linen), and White (for Mop Heads and Cloths).
