PPE doesn’t start and end with protection against viral outbreaks. All types of workers from different sectors of industry require personal protective equipment.
When you work on a construction site, you require a hard hat to make sure you protect yourself from falling objects. When you work in a kitchen, you need aprons to protect both yourself and the food you prepare. You might require ventilation equipment, dust masks and nose clips for those working with brick dust. Divers require breathing apparatus. Cooks require hair nets.
PPE covers every area of industry because every worker has safety needs. Every employer has a legal obligation to provide this PPE – or risk a lawsuit down the line because they neglected it.
Put simply: you cannot afford to skip out on PPE as an employer. This infographic shows you all the various kinds of PPE that you might need to provide for your staff.
