During the West Africa Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) outbreak in year 2014, DEREKDUCK donated 10,000 pieces protective clothing to Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as disease management preparation. Our protective clothing exceeds both WHO PPE specifications Option 1 & 2 stated in EVD Managing Epidemics Handbook. This donation was used later for Taiwan Avian Influenza culling operation in year 2015.
DEREKDUCK has the responsibility to protect the young future. We decided to allocate more resources on Industry-University-Government Collaboration, hence participated in Designer Venture Challenge Program associated with YOUNG DESIGNERS' EXHIBITION (YODEX) in the year 2019. We encouraged occupational safety awareness mindset should start from young, learn about their rights and responsibilities in the workplace and gain valuable knowledge about how they can protect themselves and others.
DEREKDUCK works annually with Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to provide seminar for frontline operators on the importance of body protection against liquid splash, infective agents and chemicals. We implement Selection of Appropriate Protective Clothing and Proper Donning & Doffing mindsets on healthcare personnel to prevent occupational safety incidents.
DEREKDUCK demonstrated proper donning and doffing process of protective clothing to students of College of Medicine in Fu Jen Catholic University during COVID-19 period. We insisted this standard protocol for frontline operators, as heathcare personnel should avoid secondary contamination after daily occupational tasks and go home safely.
