GIPskins PPE: Veterinary

Protect your skin from infection and injury from bites and scratches in the workplace.

An introduction to GIPskins PPE for Veterinary professionals

Dexterity, hygiene and safety all play an equal part within the veterinary workplace.  We know that veterinary professionals like yourselves face the risk of personal injury and infection every day whilst at work. Here at GIPskins PPE we don't believe that this should be an acceptable workplace hazard. We have created patented arm protecting sleeves that cover all the skin that will come into contact with your patients. Acting as a barrier, your GIPskins PPE will help prevent scratches and damage from bites, thus helping to prevent skin2skin infections.

NOTE:  GIPskins PPE are not a replacement for gauntlets. GIPskins may be worn with gauntlets or when gauntlets are not practical e.g. when taking bloods.

Vet in GIPskins Sleeves

The British Veterinary Association (BVA) is urging veterinary teams and pet owners to work together to improve safety in surgeries as new figures reveal that two-thirds (64%) of small animal vets have been injured in the course of their work in the last year.
