What is PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)?
PPE is equipment or items worn on your person designed to protect your body from injury or infection. PPE includes protective clothing, helmets, goggles, or other equipment. The hazards addressed by PPE can include physical, electrical, heat, chemicals, biohazards, and airborne particulate matter. Protective equipment may be worn for job-related occupational safety and health purposes, as well as for sports and other recreational activities.
We focus on supplying PPE products worn for work-related or occupation related health and safety purposes.
Why do you need PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)?
PPE is needed when there are specific hazards present in the workplace. Safety is a concern for workers of all skill levels. Every year, thousands of accidents happen at the workplace. PPE is designed to protect the wearer from the hazard. However, PPE has a serious limitation: it does not eliminate the hazard at the source. PPE is the last line of defence. The purpose of PPE is to reduce exposure to hazards when engineering controls and administrative controls are not feasible or effective to reduce these risks to acceptable levels.
What if PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is uncomfortable?
Any item of PPE imposes a barrier between the wearer/user and the working environment. This barrier can create a strain on the wearer. It can also impair the ability to move or work and create significant levels of discomfort. This is often the reason why some people do not want to wear PPE or they wear it incorrectly and this places them at risk of exposure, injury, ill-health or, under extreme circumstances, death. The good news is that quality PPE is available that is ergonomically designed. We supply high quality PPE can help to minimise these barriers and can help to ensure safe and healthy working conditions through the correct use of PPE.
