Free guide to PPE launched
A new guide outlining the different types of protective workwear that need to be used in hazardous situations has been launched.
The Quick Reference Guide to Required Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) has been launched in the US by printing supply dealer Graphic Products and outlines important industrial safety tips that could be useful to many UK firms.
Available to order online, the guide has been designed to help employers prevent their staff from trying to save time by not using proper PPE in the workplace and also to expand businesses' knowledge of health and safety.
The importance of correct PPE has also been promoted at length on this side of the Atlantic.
In the past few weeks, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has held safety awareness events for firms in the construction industry in both the north-west of England and Wales.
The HSE events were organised to emphasise the importance of health and safety on building sites, including the use of correct PPE in certain situations.
