For 2019, TSS is pleased to offer customers a select number of high-quality safety products through our new online store.
In keeping with TSS’s mission to provide the most current and trustworthy information and resources — using industry-leading technology and best practices — our certified safety specialists are always researching and vetting safety products. Now, with the New Year, we are proud to be able to offer these online. ( Also available at our local offices.)
“The online store at TSS includes products that our staff feels can provide true safety benefits to the community,” said David Martin, TSS’s safety coordinator.
The Cutter Tick Test, for example, is the first product that allows you to test the tick for Lyme disease instead of the person, which means no more having to go to the doctor for a blood draw to determine whether you have been exposed. The results are quick, and the name Cutter is trusted worldwide.
Meanwhile, the brand new LifeVac can help save lives when seconds count. The revolutionary design, registered with the FDA and with Health Canada, has proven to be highly effective in choking incidents when traditional abdominal thrusts don’t work.
“Making these products available is one more way that we can ensure that TSS is attuned to all of our clients’ safety needs, with budget and convenience in mind,” Martin said.
LifeVac — Choking is one of the leading causes of death in children and results in about 100,000 visits to the emergency room each year. LifeVac is a new device that is being used in police, fire, rescue and emergency vehicles around the US and in schools, homes and assisted living facilities. It is a non-powered, single patient, portable suction apparatus that is used when the Heimlich Maneuver has failed to work. LifeVac has received high praise in numerous medical journals and is registered with the FDA.
Ambu CPR Mask — Preferred by professionals, yet easy enough to use for any rescuer, the latex-free Ambu CPR Barrier Mask makes resuscitation safer for the responder and more efficient for the patient. Since you won’t be pinching the patient’s nose shut, each rescue breath has two avenues of entry into the body. Plus, it has a transparent dome for you to see how the patient is doing and completely seals easily to the face. Each barrier mask comes in a hard clamshell case with a one-way valve included.
Cutter Lyme Disease Tick Test — With this new test, finding out whether you have been exposed to Lyme Disease through a tick bite is as close as your medicine cabinet, firstaid kit or backpack. The Lyme Disease Tick Test provides a 99.9 accurate DNA test result that tells you if a tick is a carrier of Lyme Disease. It tests the tick, not the person or pet. It’s also easy to use and results are available in a matter of days. We recommend the test for anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors as a hobby and for work (for example, landscapers and builders) as well as for pet owners.
Contaminated Drink Test Coaster — Drink Safe Technologies, a leader in date rape drug detection has created an innovative coaster that detects Gamma Hydroxybutyrate (GHB) and Ketamine, the drugs most commonly used to spike drinks in date rape incidents. These odorless and colorless drugs are nearly impossible to detect and can quickly make victims incapacitated. These coasters are small enough to keep in pockets, purses and backpacks, and are an easy-to-use way to stay safe when going to parties or bars.
