Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
PPE is equipment that will protect the user against health or safety risks at work. It can include items such as safety helmets and hard hats, gloves, eye protection, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear and safety harnesses.
PPE should be used as a last resort. Wherever there are risks to health and safety that cannot be adequately controlled in other ways, the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations require PPE to be supplied.
The Regulations also require that PPE is:
- properly assessed before use to make sure it is fit for purpose
- maintained and stored properly
- provided with instructions on how to use it safely
- used correctly by employees
We offer a large selection of PPE products and hold many items in stock, but if you do not see an item you require listed please contact our office on 01404 43000 / 01404 44007.
