LESOL Travel Spray is designed to be sprayed on to the outside of your luggage, to make it more visible to people around you.
The spray is designed for travel, hotels, cars and other vehicles, with the aim of making your luggage visible.
The product has been developed by California-based company, LESol, which has received the prestigious ‘Best of Show’ award from the Australian National Transport Safety Bureau.
The company’s president, Chris Smith, said the product could save lives, even though it is only available for travel in the US.
Mr Smith said it was important to be aware of the risks of aerosol spray on clothing, luggage, personal effects, furniture and other items, and also to be cautious when using them.
He said the company’s product, which comes in a sprayable spray bottle, was designed to protect your body from the harsh chemicals of travel.
Mr James said LESLabs spray was designed for a variety of purposes including cleaning the interior of vehicles, where people would be exposed to dangerous levels of chemicals, and for spraying on luggage, furniture, personal belongings and other surfaces.
The manufacturer, Mr Smith, also designed the product to protect the wearer against dust, fumes and water vapour.
He added the spray could also be used as a disinfectant.
Mr John said while aerosol spraying was not a new technology, there was a need to be more informed about the dangers associated with it.
Mr Johns said it made sense to design products to protect people from the chemicals they are exposed to, such as the aerosol which has been linked to serious health issues such as asthma.
“There’s an increasing number of studies coming out now showing that aerosol dust poses a significant risk to our health and well-being,” Mr Johns explained.
“It’s not a big deal to spray it on, and the people that spray it do so at a distance.”
Mr Johns also said there were also practical applications, such the use of LESlabs spray as a deodorant.
LES Labs product uses an aerosol technology similar to those used to spray a laundry detergent on clothes, Mr Johns told the ABC.
“The aerosol can be dispersed by the environment around the clothes,” Mr James added.
Mr Jones said he did not understand why people would need to wear LESols in the first place.
“I think they’re pretty useless,” he said.
“You can’t be wearing them on a plane because of all the dust, the fumes and the chemicals.”
A spokesman for the NSW Office of Emergency Services said the organisation would not be providing any additional information until the company had received advice from the federal health authorities.
“In relation to the LESllabs, NSW Emergency Services do not provide any assistance for individuals to self-deploy,” he told news.com, Wales.
“However, we will be offering support if required.”
The spokeswoman said while LESlab has tested its product in an area of the state where they were operating, it had not found any safety issues.
“We are aware of a number of safety issues, and have taken appropriate action to rectify them,” she said.
The spokesman also said it had received reports of other products that were not as effective.
“At this time, we are not aware of any other products in the market that do not meet the requirements of NSW Emergency Service,” he added.
‘Criminals are taking advantage’ Mr Smith was confident the LETSlabs product was safe, and said the manufacturer had taken a lot of steps to ensure that people were using the product safely.
“Our team is thoroughly reviewing the data from our product, and we believe it is safe to use,” he explained.
Mr Kelly said the products safety record had not been particularly good, but he believed LES labs had taken the safety precautions necessary to make the product safe.
“They are using a new spray technology and have not had any issues,” he argued.
“If you’re going to do this you need to have a good safety record.”
Mr Kelly added that he believed the NSW Police Force had done a good job of educating the public about aerosol products.
“What you need is to educate the public, and get them the information that they need,” he suggested.
Mr Thomas said the use and risk of aerosols were a growing concern.
“For years, there has been a criminal element taking advantage of aerosOL to cause harm and destruction of public property,” he noted.
“This is one of the reasons we need to ensure the public have good safety records, and this product is a great example of that.”
