The current COVID pandemic has led to a huge rise in demand for PPE; masks, gloves and hand sanitisers and we have all become too familiar with stories in the media of demand outweighing supply by far.
The economic model of supply and demand is the driving force behind business. Unfortunately, in the current situation, people are seeing this crisis as a golden opportunity to make a “quick buck”. New PPE supplier companies are being launched, many online, with the sole aim to profiteer from the current situation.
The products they are selling may be sub-standard and not meeting the required regulations and prices may be artificially inflated to take advantage of business owners across the UK and Ireland who are desperately trying to fulfil their duty of care to make their workplaces COVID-safe.
