Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is equipment that protects people against health and safety risks in the workplace. It includes: safety helmets, eye protection, hand and foot protection, high-visibility clothing and harnesses. Organisations have legal obligations regarding the provision and use of PPE.
Why is PPE Important?
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) states that ensuring workplace safety includes “providing instructions, procedures, training and supervision to encourage people to work safely and responsibly”. PPE is required when control systems have been applied yet hazards may still remain: it is designed to reduce the risk of these hazards occurring.
