Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Personal Protective Equipment

In virtually all industrialised countries, legislation exists dictating that individuals exposed to hazards at height must be provided with, and trained in the use of, PPE. The main PPE consideration is that it should be the last form of protection in a total system caring for an individual’s health and safety.
