WASHING YOUR HANDS IS IMPORTANT, BUT SO IS CLEANING THE DEVICES THAT YOUR HANDS TOUCH ALL DAY LONG.
THOROUGH DISINFECTION OF MOBILE COMPUTERS, TABLETS, PRINTERS, SCANNERS AND OTHER DEVICES IS CRITICAL TO INFECTION CONTROL IN WORKPLACES AND PUBLIC SPACES. BUT THERE IS A RIGHT AND WRONG WAY TO DO IT.
Given the rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 coronavirus, we are receiving a high volume of questions about how our Zebra mobile devices and Zebra printers should be cleaned in order to best protect the front-line workers using them in warehouses, manufacturing shop floors, routes, and more. These inquiries span across the entire portfolio of mobile computers, scanners and printers that we offer … and come from every industry we service today.
Cleaning devices that are going to be used by multiple workers across shifts is a key requirement that everyone should consider and here is some clear guidance on how you can most effectively clean and disinfect devices once they are installed in the field.
The most important thing to consider when looking to deploy a cleaning protocol for your Zebra products is that our guidance on how to clean a device, and what to clean with, is different for each device … there is not a one-size-fits-all approach.
