What is PPE?
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is equipment that will protect you from health and safety risks at work. PPE includes things like safety helmets, gloves, eye protection, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear and safety harnesses as well as respiratory protective equipment (RPE).
If you are hurt at work due to a lack of, or faulty PPE you will be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
