Like other B2B industries, the JanSan market continues to experience major changes  – the rapid rise of disruptive technology – the social media revolution – buying power shifts with Millennials and Baby Boomers, distribution model changes and more. No matter how much the JanSan industry changes, there is always a need to protect the health and safety of workers.  In fact, recent reports indicate that market conditions in commercial real estate and the medical sectors are fueling growth in the JanSan industry.  How can you capitalize on the growth in SanJan?

3 Smart Sales Tips for JanSan Safety

  1. Stay current on Trends
    Trends, such as increased health and safety, energy and labor savings, and sustainability, have fueled the cleaning industry and will continue to do so for years to come. Manufacturers in the JanSan industry will continue to invest in research and development and product innovation to stay on the cutting-edge.  This is a great outlook for distributors who will have a steady stream of new products that provide customers with innovative solutions to do their work safer and more efficiently. The needs are virtually endless and so is the income stream for those that stay informed and take action.
  2. Understand what matters
    Find out what’s really important to your customers.  Do you really understand your customer’s unique needs?  Curiosity is a powerful trait. The most successful  businesspeople will tell you that curiosity is one of the best qualities a salesperson can have. Curious salespeople ask probing questions and take a genuine interest in learning about their clients. if you stop selling and start asking, you’ll find out what motivates them to make decisions, and, by listening, you’ve now built a trusting relationship. It’s a win-win-win.
  3. Promote Solutions
    How do you add value?  Smart distributors understand this key fact – you don’t sell products – you sell solutions.  When describing the JanSan products that you sell, be specific about the problems that they solve for your customers in each sector in JanSan – education, government, healthcare, hospitality, food service, commercial and domestic.  Sure, you sell disposable latex, nitrile vinyl, and poly gloves, but what do you really sell?  Emphasize the solutions your products provide –
  • Healthcare: “We help hospitals reduce the spread of infections.”
  • Education:We help schools reduce student absenteeism.”
  • Industrial:  “We help facilities increase productivity.”
  • Foodservice: “We help restaurants reduce cross contamination.”

Safety is Everyone’s Business.  You may not think that you are in the safety business, but safety impacts everyone in every industry. No matter how much the JanSan industry changes, there is always a need to protect the health and safety of workers.  Gloves are an essential tool for safety. The JanSan industry – manufacturers, distributors, and facility managers – that can offer quality products, understand what matters, and add value by promoting solutions will be positioned to capitalize on the forecasted market growth.

Why Safety Matters for All Industries


June is National Safety Month and workplace safety is no accident.  In fact, occupational accidents and injuries affect every industry and can majorly impact an employer’s bottom line.  Businesses spend $170 billion a year on costs associated with occupational injuries and Illness. However, workplace accidents can be substantially reduced with a solid safety program incorporating personal protective equipment (PPE). This June, we encourage you to learn more about why safety matters for all industries.  Each week during National Safety Month, AMMEX will share valuable industry-specific topics, tips, and trends that you can reshare or send directly so you are a Safety Expert for your clients #‎SafetyMatters.

Safety Matters for All Industries

    • Week 1:  Safety Month Launch
    • Week 2:  JanSan Industry
    • Week 3:  Automotive Industry
    • Week 4:  Food Service Industry
    • Week 5:  Medical and Dental Industry

Why Safety Matters for All Industries

Workplace safety affects all industries – whether it’s food safety in the food service industry, chemical safety in janitorial and sanitation, or protection against biological agents in the medical and dental industry – whatever the case workplace safety matters to every industry.  In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that workplace injuries reached 3.0 million in 2014 and occurred across all occupations.  Workplace injuries can significantly impact an employer’s bottom line.

“Creating a safe workplace is becoming increasingly important to business success.”

Employers that invest in workplace safety can expect to reduce fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. This will result in cost savings in a variety of areas, such as lowering workers’ compensation costs and medical expenses, avoiding OSHA penalties, and reducing costs to train replacement employees and conduct accident investigations. In addition, employers often find that changes made to improve workplace safety and health can result in significant improvements to their organization’s productivity and financial performance.

“Because much work is done with the hands, gloves are essential for workplace safety programs.”

Fatalities and injuries can be substantially reduced with the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).  Any form of PPE that acts as a barrier between the skin and the agent of exposure can be considered skin protection. Gloves are an essential tool in protecting workers. Some examples of gloves commonly used as PPE include leather work gloves and disposable gloves such as nitrile, latex, vinyl or poly.  Many different gloves are used for protection, generally against biological agents, chemical agents, and mechanical trauma.  Other than gloves, protection worn for the purpose of protecting the skin is considered personal protection equipment such as face masks, poly sleeves, aprons, and hair nets.

National Safety Month is a great time for employers to evaluate workplace safety programs and safety equipment. The benefits of a workplace safety program can directly affect the company’s bottom line, reducing costs and improving productivity.  AMMEX disposable gloves are sold by AMMEX distributors and trusted by the most prominent end users across a variety of industries.  Contact us today to become a distributor and supply your customers with superior quality disposable gloves and barrier protection products.

Help Prevent Norovirus Outbreaks in the Food Service Industry


The Norovirus is commonly associated with wide-spread illness that occurs on cruise ships, but those account for only about 1% of all reported norovirus outbreaks. Recent news of Norovirus affecting a popular restaurant chain confirms that it can occur anywhere people gather or food is served.  Infected people can spread norovirus to others through close contact or by contaminating food and surfaces. Food service workers who have the norovirus can contaminate food and make many people sick. However, there are ways to help prevent norovirus outbreaks in the food service industry such as following food service safety practices like proper barrier protection and hygiene policies.

A Boston-area Chipotle has been shut down temporarily after an employee was diagnosed with norovirus and two others reported similar symptoms,CBS Boston reports.

News such as this highlights the facts that the Norovirus, is highly contagious – often spread by infected food service workers – and immediate action should be taken to help prevent norovirus outbreaks in the food service industry.

Consider these Norovirus statistics from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

Help-Prevent-Norovirus-Outbreaks-in-the-Food-Service-IndustryAbout 20 million people get sick from norovirus each year

Help-Prevent-Norovirus-Outbreaks-in-the-Food-Service-Industry#1 cause of outbreaks from contaminated food in the US.

Help-Prevent-Norovirus-Outbreaks-in-the-Food-Service-IndustryInfected food workers cause about 70% of reported outbreaks

Norovirus outbreaks from contaminated food are common in the food service industry because food service industry workers often go to work when they are sick and may contaminate food.  Of outbreaks caused by infected food workers, 54% involve food workers touching ready-to-eat-foods with their bare hands. Ready-to-eat foods are foods that are ready to be served without additional preparation, such as washed raw fruits and vegetables for salads or sandwiches, baked goods, or items that have already been cooked.

Observations of food service workers have shown that they practice proper hand washing only 1 in 4 times.

Norovirus is hard to kill and stays on food, kitchen surfaces, and utensils. It can remain infectious on foods even at freezing temperatures and until heated above 140°F and can stay on countertops and serving utensils for up to 2 weeks.  Norovirus can also be resistant to many common disinfectants and hand sanitizers.

What can be done to help prevent norovirus outbreaks in the food service industry?

Food service industry can

  • Adhere to food safety laws and regulations.
  • Certify kitchen managers and train food service workers in food safety practices.
  • Establish policies that require workers to stay home while sick with vomiting and diarrhea for at least 48 hours after symptoms stop.
  • Foster a work environment that encourages workers to stay home when sick, by considering such measures such as paid sick leave and a staffing plan that includes on-call workers.

Food service workers can

  • Tell a manager when sick with symptoms of norovirus such as vomiting and diarrhea.
  • Wash hands carefully and often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the restroom.
  • Use single-use disposable gloves to avoid touching ready-to-eat foods with bare hands.
  • Regularly clean and sanitize kitchen surfaces and frequently touched objects, using a chlorine based product or other sanitizer approved by the Environmental Protection Agency for use against norovirus.
  • Immediately block off, clean, and disinfect areas where there has been a vomiting or diarrheal incident.
  • Carefully wash fruits and vegetables and avoid serving undercooked (below 140°F) oysters and other shellfish.
  • Visit www.FoodSafety.gov for the latest information.

Due to the nature of the food service industry – where workers directly handle food  – disposable glove usage in this sector is common. The U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) requires all employees to wash their hands if they make contact with food. However, when it comes to the prevention of norovirus, food service disposable gloves are the most effective barrier protection according to the CDC – it helps to prevent the spread of the norovirus.

The CDC strongly recommends food workers use disposable gloves to avoid touching food with bare hands.

Food service disposable gloves, such as polyethylene gloves commonly referred to as poly gloves are a popular choice in the food service industry.  Disposable poly gloves such as, AMMEX Poly are ideal for food service since they are single-use and workers tend to switch between various light-duty tasks, and they need a disposable glove that can accommodate their workflow.

Another popular single-use disposable glove for food service is polyvinyl chloride (PVC), also known as vinyl.  Disposable gloves such as AMMEX AntiMicrobial Vinyl are single use, FDA approved for food service and they contain an antimicrobial agent to help inhibit the growth of microorganisms.

Regardless of which disposable gloves food service workers use, poly, vinyl, and latex disposable gloves are a smart investment for the food service industry.  Food service disposable gloves can help prevent norovirus outbreaks in the food service industry – protecting workers and consumers against foodborne illness – And helps to protect businesses against tarnished reputations and decreased profits when restaurants have to close due to outbreaks.  Thousands of distributors rely on AMMEX to supply their customers in the food service industry with high-quality AMMEX disposable gloves. Contact us today to become an AMMEX distributor and learn how we help our distributors grow their glove sales on average of 31%!

Disposable Glove Usage: Industrial Safety and Chemical


Did you know the industrial, safety and chemical industries had the highest disposable glove revenue, on par with the medical and dental industry in 2012? Not only was this sector the top contender for industrial markets that year, analysts project it will continue to have the second highest overall revenue by 2022.

While industrial safety is a broad area, one need remains key: chemical protection. This is why nitrile gloves account for 65 percent of the glove material distribution in this industry.

Considering the American Burn Association said 3 percent of hospital admissions for burns from 2003 to 2012 were for chemical burns, and 9 percent of all burns were occupational, workers in the industrial and safety industry are vital potential customers for nitrile and other glove materials that offer chemical resistance.
