Fentanyl is a powerful synthetic drug, similar to morphine and heroin, but 50-100 times more potent. Increasing rates of usage and addiction to fentanyl are placing everyone from first responders, law enforcement, janitors/maintenance staff and many more at a greater risk of accidental exposure.
Just 2-3 milligrams of fentanyl (the equivalent in size to 5-7 grains of table salt) can cause an overdose. Increasing rates of usage and addiction to fentanyl are placing first responders, law enforcement and other professions at a greater risk of accidental exposure. Exposure to the dangers of fentanyl can occur in many ways, from ingestion to inhalation to absorption.
The risk is real and that’s why Ansell offers a variety of tested hand and body protection solutions to help protect against accidental exposure to fentanyl and keep workers safe.
