PPE works as a barrier between an individual’s skin, mouth, nose, or eyes and viral and bacterial infections. In order to be used in a medical setting, most PPE—medical gloves, gowns, and N95 respirators—is regulated by the government agency and must meet their regulations. When used properly and with other infection control practices such as hand-washing, using alcohol-based hand sanitizers, and covering coughs and sneezes, PPE minimizes the spread of infection from one person to another.
Suprina has always sought to better the lives of her clients as well as society as a whole. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Suprina saw and was greatly troubled by the merciless profiteering by unscrupulous medical supply brokers. These suppliers took advantage of the crisis by overcharging health care institutions who were trying to supply heroic workers with enough Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Suprina, along with her friends and colleagues that she has rallied to participate, knew they had to do something about this, and that’s where WHG was born. One of the biggest challenges to the PPE industry is how to pay for the goods, especially when the prices of those goods are being astronomically inflated. This said, WHG’s focus is on Financial Health. More specifically, to provide PPE products, obtained from all over the world, to those in need at the best possible price.
As businesses reopen, they will be required to follow the guidelines of the CDC. This includes keeping social distancing guidelines in place, encouraging workers and customers to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer frequently, as well as cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces at least once a day and more often in high-traffic areas. Whether employers are actually required to provide PPE to workers varies by state, and you can check out our COVID-19 Info By State page to find out more about your state! However, although the actual employer may not always be required to provide PPE, the use of PPE in the workplace will definitely be the new norm as we get back-to-work.
If you are a small business, or are looking to order less than 10,000 units of PPE goods, we are here to help! WHG creates a buying coalition of smaller orders in order to reach “large order pricing”. In other words, your PPEs request will be added to other small businesses orders to create a volume big enough to go direct to manufacturers, cutting out the middle-men and mercenaries and decreasing the price. WHG is happy to support the aggregated buying power for our small business community!
