PPE- personal Protective Equipment

Making the workplace safe includes providing instructions, procedures, training and supervision to encourage people to work safely and responsibly.

Even where engineering controls and safe systems of work have been applied, some hazards might remain. These include injuries to:

  • Lungs, eg from breathing in contaminated air
  • Head and feet, eg from falling materials
  • Eyes, eg from flying particles or splashes of corrosive liquids
  • Skin, eg from contact with corrosive materials
  • Body, eg from extremes of heat or cold

PPE is needed in these cases to reduce the risk.
