Flying high for safety
07 March 2013
Stephen Falder recently spoke at the 50th annual SAFE Association symposium in Reno, Nevada, addressing an audience of military safety experts on the potential impact of Byotrol's hygiene technology on the safety of frontline aviators.
Falder spoke on the benefits of using Byotrol to improve the quality and safety of aviator respiratory masks.
Byotrol continues to work when it dries, killing 99.9 per cent germs for up to 24 hours and doesn't degrade the surfaces it touches, so expensive equipment isn't damaged during cleaning.
'Historically, cleaning has damaged the respiratory masks, putting personnel at high risk of infection as damaged masks are a breeding ground for microbes,' comments Falder.
'Byotrol ensures safer working conditions for aviators.' Jerry Reid of SkyTexus, the authorised US distributor of Byotrol within the military sector, comments: 'After our presentation, we were overwhelmed by the response of attending life support professionals looking for an alternative to alcohol. Byotrol is that alternative.'
