Orange Medical Safety Products Questions and Answers
Why does Sandel Medical Industries manufacture orange colored products?The staff at Sandel Medical Industries understands that healthcare employees are often at risk for work-related injuries as a result of their tools blending into a "Sea of Blue" rather than being clearly and distinguishably visible. Our orange products are manufactured to prevent these injuries by allowing medical tools and equipment to become safely separated from other materials.
Have there been substantial annual instances of healthcare employees becoming inured on the job?
Yes. It has been estimated that each year, between 600,000 and 800,000 healthcare professionals become injured while performing their expected job functions. It has also been noted that nurses experience almost half of all such reported injuries.
How are orange products beneficial for healthcare employees?
Using medical equipment and tools that are orange, instead of the typical blue, help provide a distinct separation between sterile sharps and other nearby medical objects. When each medical tool stands out from the rest because of color contrasts, there is less risk for common operating room injuries.
