Secured environments are preventing injury and saying goodbye to the hazards of utensils sharpened to shanks by switching to EcoSecurity Utensil, or ESU. These slick, moisture-resistant, paperboard utensils serve as the perfect sturdy scoop for any bite-sized foods while at the same time preventing self-harm and costly lock-downs and cell extractions due to utensil misuse.
Injury prevention is priority number one in high-security environments like correctional and mental health facilities, and the ESU renders utensil monitoring obsolete. Many facilities value ESUs for their suicide-watch units. And while the cost savings associated with eliminating eating utensil misuse is critical, ESU also allows facilities to offer more humane options than fingers-only eating, and expands limited, fingers-only menus.
