Eco Friendly Face Masks with Lanyard

On this project they have noticed the increased waste of single-use masks on site during the coronavirus pandemic in the last few months.

This is in contradiction with the company’s green principles and they wanted to find a way how to reduce waste and to come up with something useful. They also wanted the masks to be easily accessible at all times and to avoid touching the masks or keeping them in dirty pockets.

After discussions with the workforce, they have come up with a cotton mask that can be washed and has a built-in lanyard that can go around the neck. This has proven to be very successful and all of the workforce are using them. The project have ordered a number of them for each person so that they can be washed regularly. As a result of this single-use masks are no longer seen on the site.

They have also decided to use one of their own contractor’s parents. who lost their job due to coronavirus, to make these masks and support them in their new venture.

This example of best practice is just one way that projects can work to tackle the virus and reduce the spread. For full guidance and the latest Government advice read the Construction Leadership Council’s Site Operating Procedures.
