PPE & Workwear

Personal protective equipment for your workplace

Employers are required, by law, to ensure that employees are protected from health and safety risks, every activity carried out by employees should have a risk assessment carried out and if this assessment identifies potential hazards after safe systems and controls have been initiated, then PPE (personal protective equipment) must be provided, free of charge, to affected workers.

  • properly assessed before use to make sure it is fit for purpose

  • used correctly by workers

Employers must ensure workers have sufficient information, instruction and training on PPE use.
