HSE issues risk assessment guide to establish need for eye protection and other gear

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued a series of examples on its website to help businesses to conduct a risk assessment.

There are guides available for a wide range of industries including contract bricklayers, factory maintenance workers and poultry farmers.

The HSE says: "Every business is different - you need to think about the hazards and controls your business needs."

However, the HSE also notes that "a risk assessment will only be effective if you and your staff act on it".

A risk assessment can help a company identify what personal protective equipment is required.

The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 state that "personal protective equipment (such as eye protection), is to be supplied and used at work wherever there are risks to health and safety that cannot be adequately controlled in other ways".

The regulations also require that PPE is assessed for suitability before use, is maintained and stored properly, comes with instructions on safe use, and is used appropriately by employees.
