Avanti has chosen BRACE as charity of 2012   

 
We are proud to be supporting BRACE, a local charity funding research into Alzheimer's Disease. BRACE is one of only a few charities that exists specifically to finance dementia research and has raised over £10 million to help support diverse research projects into all aspects of dementia, since the charity was founded in 1987. BRACE supports research projects undertaken in universities and hospitals in the South West of the UK, particularly Bristol, which is a centre of excellence for neuroscience research.

BRACE aims to raise the much needed funds to help support a continuing programme of research and also to raise awareness of the disease and its effects, not only on the sufferer but also on family life.

BRACE prides itself on funding high quality research projects in different aspects of dementia research. The projects range from the development of more accurate methods of diagnosis and evaluating treatments to examining a person's genetic make-up to see why some people suffer from dementia when others live into old age without developing the condition.

Avanti now offering the DuoMax range – Environmentally safe infection control products

     
 

Avanti is delighted to have been chosen to distribute the new DuoMax range. DuoMax kills 99.9999% of bacterial population, bringing it down to a safe level in under 30 seconds whilst gently removing dirt and grease with ease.

 
How does it work?

DuoMax uses ground breaking technology to eradicate bacteria. DuoMax pierces the outer membrane of the bacteria and destroys the DNA and RNA which eliminates the risk of bacteria developing resistance to the product.

Alcohol denatures only external membrane proteins which does not kill the bacteria, only temporarily disables them, allowing them to regenerate with increased strength.

By removing the protein, DuoMax not only kills the bacteria, but any odour will also be removed. All this whilst being non-toxic, non-irritant and non-corrosive.

Key Benefits

  • Eliminates Bacteria, Fungi and Viruses
  • Non-Toxic
  • Non-Irritant
  • Non-Corrosive
  • Cleans & Disinfects
  • Non-Flammable
  • Alcohol-Free
  • Removes grease and dirt
  • EN 1276 Approved
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Eliminates risk of cross contamination
  • Safe to use on wide range of surfaces
  • No PPE required

 We are having a great deal of success with this range in schools, nurseries, care and nursing homes. Call us for more information or to request a sample.

New British Standard BS-8599 for Workplace First Aid Kits

A new national standard for First Aid kits has been introduced by the British Standards Institute (BSi). 
 
Legislation requires employers to ensure that first aid kits are readily available in the workplace and of the right composition to meet their needs following their own risk assessment. However, current Workplace First Aid Kit contents were last reviewed over 14 years ago in 1997. Since then there have been extensive changes in training protocol, new product innovations and increasing infection control. 
 
With this in mind, a new national standard for workplace First Aid kits in the UK has been introduced by the British Standards Institute (BSi). It follows extensive work by the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) in cooperation with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
 
Previously, with BHTA guidance, four kits had been designed based on the HSE guidelines, kit 10, 20, 50 and a travel kit. These BHTA kits have become the national standard and are almost universally adopted by both the public and private sectors. 
 
Following the adoption of the new standard, there will continue to be four kits, now called Small, Medium, Large and Travel. The broad changes to the kit involve the following products:
 
Gloves
It was determined that the existing kits and HSE guidelines had insufficient quantities of gloves, given current infection control concerns. Nitrile gloves were selected in line with NHS and St John Ambulance guidelines. 
 
Plasters and Wipes
A survey of customers indicated that a larger quantity of plasters was required. 
 
Burns Dressings
Modern wet gel burns dressings are now much lower in price and are universally used by accident and emergency services. Given that any workplace that has a kettle has a risk for burns, this item is added. A conforming bandage is added to the kits to secure this dressing, where appropriate. 
 
Resuscitation Device
Mouth-to-mouth resuscitation can present an infection risk to the patient or first aider. Employers have a duty of care to protect their employees from such a risk. 
 
Finger Dressings
A large proportion of injuries involve fingers. The old kits had only plasters to offer for treatment of such injuries, the smallest serious wound dressing was 12cm2, a finger sized dressing is added to the new kits. 
 
Adhesive Tape
Adhesive tape is added to conveniently and safely secure dressings and bandages, without the need to use safety pins. Safety pins are retained as an option, particularly for triangular bandages used as slings. 
 
Triangular Bandages
The number of triangular bandages has been reduced reflecting the current first aid protocols that no longer indicate their use for immobilisation of lower limb injuries. 
 
Foil Survival Blanket
Clinical shock presents a risk to life. The treatment includes keeping the casualty warm, the addition of foil survival blankets allows first aiders to treat clinical shock, where in the past they would be reliant on blankets being available. 
 
Scissor/Shears
Where injuries occur through clothing or shoes, protocol dictates that the clothing should be cut away around the wound site to allow it to be covered with a dressing. Current first aid kits do not include the equipment to do this task, the new kits include shears that are capable of cutting leather. 
 
The existing BHTA first aid kits will remain until the end of 2011, after which they will be withdrawn. The new BSi standard became effective from 1st July 2011. This allows for a 6 month transition period.
