Personal Protective Equipment Training or PPE training
Personal protective equipment training – Do you require training in how to use PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) properly?
In the UK there are approximately 144 fatalities in the workplace and around 621,000 non-fatal injuries every year.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a vital role in managing Health & Safety risks.
However, historical data shows many workers suffering injury were not wearing this clothing.
Is the the right course for me?
This course is primarily aimed at people that work in industries such as construction where they are likely to need to use a wide range of PPE on a daily basis.
However, there are many other areas of work where PPE is required such as factories, warehouses, window cleaners, healthcare workers, beauticians and many others.
One of the key things this course is intended to do is to teach people why they should use the PPE that is supplied to them and it is some of these other work areas where this message will be most effective.
PPE training: what is covered?
This course will show how wearing PPE plays a crucial role in preventing and reducing fatalities, injuries and diseases that would otherwise occur in the workplace.
It includes details of a wide range of PPE options, examines the legislation and regulations that govern the responsibilities of employers, employees and suppliers, and provides a real-life case study showing the law in action.
The course will also cover risk assessment and the role it plays in the selection and use of PPE along with discussing other hazard control measures that can be implemented.
Finally, the course will move on to how to use, fit and wear PPE and understand its physical and theoretical limitations.
The course is one of a range of workplace safety courses that we provide.
