As aid pours into Haiti for victims injured and displaced by the recent earthquakes, the massive cleanup is just beginning. Based on specific needs expressed by workers in Haiti, Ansell is assisting with the relief effort by shipping gloves for medical workers and work crews involved in the search for victims and removal of debris. Earlier this month, the company shipped exam gloves that are being used in hospitals and at other sites to examine and treat patients.
“Ansell is proud to help protect members of the medical teams and work crews involved in disaster relief efforts throughout Haiti,” said Doug Tough, CEO Ansell Limited. “With so many people injured and countless buildings destroyed or severely damaged, the need for assistance is tremendous.”
Ansell has responded to other major disasters in the past, including Hurricane Katrina, the fires in Australia and the tsunami in Southeast Asia. The company routinely provides the non-profit organization Direct Relief with medical gloves for charitable use.
