Article 5 of the Working Conditions Act obliges the employer to draw up an RI&E (Risk-Inventory and Evaluation). This is where occupational risks are elaborated and assessed.
The employer provides information, education, PPE and supervision on the work activities. The employee attends the education, works in accordance with the instructions and uses the prescribed PPE. The PPE must be suitable for mitigating the risks. The PPE must be adjusted to the user, be sufficiently available, be in good condition and be timely replaced or repaired.
Protective clothing must comply with the set EN and/or ISO-standards. These requirements derive from the European Decree 2016/425. This includes the fundamental regulations that all PPE, introduced in the European market, must comply with.
