About Safe'N'Clear, Inc.

Safe’N’Clear, Inc. markets the world’s first FDA approved surgical face mask with clear window.

Safe’N’Clear Inc, is woman-owned and a certified DOBE (Disability Owned Business Enterprise). Our mission is to Change the Face of Healthcare by providing clearer communication for deaf and hard of hearing individuals in settings where masks are required.

Safe’N’Clear, Inc. markets The Communicator™ surgical face mask with clear window; the first FDA-approved medical face mask. It is 100% sourced and made in the USA, and ADA-effective to allow visual communication with deaf, hard of hearing, and other visual communicators giving them the ability to read lips and see facial expressions.

Dr. Anne McIntosh, a Communication Professor at University of Maryland Global Campus and member of the deaf community, founded Safe’N’Clear, Inc. in 2012 as a result of her real life communication complications experience during child birth. She recognized there was a critical need for effective communication between the hearing world and those with hearing loss in masked environments, not just in life-threatening situations, but in every day communications.

People with disabilities are often overlooked because of stigmas. Safe’N’Clear advocates for the human rights and awareness for the deaf and hard of hearing community, and not just during times of crisis.  As President of Safe’N’Clear, Inc., Dr. McIntosh is committed to hiring individuals with disabilities, military veterans, minorities, and college students to prepare them for the workforce.

Safe’N’Clear recognizes everyday heroes in the deaf and hard of hearing community in a Deaf Leaders Series. A program created to acknowledge and promote the accomplishments of these individuals who have achieved successful careers in healthcare, education, and business. Candidates are awarded a Certificate of Recognition, are featured prominently on, in the e-newsletter, and across social media channels.

Safe’N’Clear, Inc. actively supports various nonprofit organizations such as Association of Medical Professionals with Hearing Loss (AMPHL), Hands and Voices, DeafMed, Exceptional Nurse, and many others with a portion of proceeds and donated masks.
