Personal protective equipment (PPE)

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. [ see How to win your Personal Injury Claim]
