The Skellefteå model, based on the "Healthy Firefighters" project, is a practical model that strives for good hygiene. The model is designed to reduce the risk of, for example, firefighters being exposed to hazardous substances. Towards healthy firefighters, now and in the future!
"Is the fire department now more at risk than the generation before?" This is a question that concerns many fire department experts. It has been proven that firefighters are more likely to suffer from cancer and infertility, for example.
The Healthy Firefighters project strives for a better working environment for all firefighters. The project was carried out in Sweden with, among others, the emergency services organization Kommunal Räddningstjänsten and the Swedish firefighters association.
This project was not about the dangers that the firefighters run during exercises, fire fighting and other dangerous activities of the fire department. No, it was all about creating that healthier and better working environment for the fire brigade.
One component within this project, for example, was an extensive risk assessment. This ultimately led to the emergence of new procedures for the fire brigade. Ensure that fire brigades stay healthy, now and in the future.
See a video here that clearly shows what you should pay attention to during a fire or exercise, but also when cleaning yourself and your firefighter's clothing. In this video you will also see various equipment for the fire brigade, including a washing machine and dryer from the Podab brand and a washing machine from the Solo Rescue brand. The Solo Rescue is specially for washing your fire boots, fire helmets, cylinders and breathing apparatus (SCBA). Of course available at Laundry Expert!
We recommend that the fire brigade work according to the Skellefteå model to ensure that you come into contact with harmful substances as little as possible. More information about this model and minimizing risks? Contact us quickly and we will help you find the right solution!
