Personal Protective Equipment

The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 (as amended) sets out duties to employers to ensure that PPE is:

  • Supplied and used at work wherever there are risks to health & safety that cannot be adequately controlled in other ways
  • Properly assessed before use to ensure it is suitable
  • Maintained and stored properly
  • Provided with instructions on how to use it safely 

Where the use of PPE has been identified as an appropriate control measure through risk assessment, then it is the duty of staff to appropriately use the PPE as provided.

The checklist is taken from the Policy, and can be used during the selection process of PPE.
