The Czech pharmaceutical company VAKOS XT, a.s., became one of this year’s Good Practice Awards winners for developing measures to protect police and rescue services personnel from exposure to illegal narcotics.
The technique results in real improvements, as reported by exposed workers, such as decrease in symptomatic toxic indications (e.g. muscle spasms and cramps or non-specific headaches). Likewise, the procedures for workplace preventive decontamination led to a reduction in long-term damage to health.
