Disinfecting Devices is Just as Important as Washing Your Hands
Social distancing, daily temperature taking, and proper hygiene practices are becoming the new normal for businesses. Shared devices are prime targets for contracting viruses. Although disinfecting is important, when equipment like handheld scanners, mobile computers and industrial tablets are cleaned frequently, the plastic housing can get dried out and crack if inappropriate cleaning agents are used. Luckily, all it takes is a little education and you can limit problems with your devices.
Consider 'disinfectant-ready' housing, which is designed to be cleaned regularly (i.e., in a healthcare environment) and can stand up to the regimens and requirements to limit the spread of viruses like the flu and COVID-19.
Follow manufacturer cleaning guidelines. We recommend reading this blog from Zebra covering specific instructions to clean Zebra products.
