While the impact of the government’s response to COVID-19 on the oil and gas industry was profound, IPT rose to the occasion and funded the production of PPE to aid workers at the front line. To date, IPT has contributed to produce over 4,000 3D-printed mask strap extenders to hospitals, clinics, and essential businesses using a battery of 3D printers purchased for this purpose.   These simple plastic parts take pressure off worker’s ears while using surgical masks. Surgical masks were not designed for extended use and result in discomfort and injury when worn for many hours during the shift. Some users experience skin rubbed raw and bleeding from long-term use.   Our process of producing these straps involves printing a clinically-approved strap extender from the National Institutes of Health. Over the course of two weeks, the printing process was optimized to produce functional pieces at the fastest rate possible. [...]
