Webinar: Face Coverings- the importance of consumer trust for a safer world

As of early May 2020, 88% of the world's population lives in countries that recommend or mandate the use of face coverings in public.

With a swathe of these products now available, what should consumers consider when selecting these products, and what is the relationship between these products and other measures to help reduce the spread? Most important, how do manufacturers show consumers their products can be trusted?

In this webinar, hear from BSI Health and Safety Expert Kate Field and Product Certification Head of Marketing Hilary Roberts where they discuss these issues and whether a mark of trust can help address these. 

Topics that will be covered:

  • The evolution of the pandemic and how its changed habits
  • Global approach towards face coverings
  • Distinguishing between surgical masks, PPE and face coverings
  • Why the Kitemark scheme?
