Let's start by looking at PPE. What is it? And what do you need?
Inventory of PPE
Recognise and prevent workplace risks. Before buying PPE for your business, it is important to first of all identify all occupational risks.
Which hazards apply?
- Foot and leg injuries?
- Drowning danger?
- Falling from height?
- Cutting and hand injury?
- Open fire and metal splashes?
- Heat stress?
- Dangerous substances?
- Hearing damage?
- Fine dust, gases and fumes?
It can help to observe the workplace, conduct interviews with users and also identify employee needs and wants. Also note whether current PPE is still up-to-date. In the interest of safety, there are specific requirements for use of PPE laid down by law.
A PPE scan can help identify all occupational risks. We often see a gap between theory (laws and regulations) and implementation in the workplace. Often employers do not know what requirements apply at their company. Also, employees are not always satisfied with use of current resources.
Don't wait until you miss an inspection where the risks are not properly covered. Or worse, don't wait until a workplace accident occurs. Most risks are preventable with proper application of PPE.
Application of PPE
Protect health and safety
From yourself and your staff. PPE has fortunately been adopted by many PPE suppliers developed so that comfort is also high on the agenda. You work all your life. Let it at least be pleasant to wear PPE.
Once the importance of safety and comfort is known, you also want to convince staff that it works. Consciousness is crucial in this. After all, you don't just create safety with an obligation. Support and awareness for safe working are particularly important.
Tip: Hang information posters in strategic places on the company premises. For example in the canteen or changing rooms
