Personal protective equipment, or PPE, is any
clothing or equipment a worker uses for protection. It includes
equipment such as goggles, ear plugs, respirators, safety harnesses,
safety shoes, hard hats and sunscreen.
PPE can be useful, but it is also one of the least effective ways of
controlling safety problems. It works best when used with other control
measures – or when absolutely no other safety measures are available.
There are specific laws about using appropriate PPE in the workplace.
At Brandworx we strive to ensure our staff are knowledgable in all aspects of PPE to ensure you and your employees stay safe.
