Personal Protective Equipment

Personal Protective Equipment

No PPE provides 100% protection. PPE that is correctly selected, used and maintained is capable of providing effective protection. Unsuitable, poorly maintained and incorrectly used PPE may give limited protection or none at all, and may even put the wearer at greater risk. PPE which provides little or no protection is a waste of time and money. This course will show how wearing PPE plays a crucial role in preventing and reducing fatalities, injuries and diseases at work. It includes details of a wide range of PPE options, examines the legislation and regulations and also covers the role risk assessment plays in the selection and use of PPE. The course concludes with advice on how to use, fit and wear PPE and its physical and theoretical limitations.
