Personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential for the minimising of exposure to hazards and personal protection. PPE should be comfortable, robust, reliable and relevant to the industry. Industry-specific PPE is a requirement for protection against injury and illness generated from chemical, physical, biological, or mechanical hazards. In cases where protocols and routines are not sufficient in providing for employee safety, it is the responsibility of the business to supply employees with PPE.
Traditional PPE management can become costly and time-consuming for a company. The responsibility falls to the company to ensure that the PPE supplied is effective and meets legislative standards for the industry. Adequate risk assessment needs to be conducted to determine the appropriate PPE required, as well as the reporting structures, should there be challenges with the equipment. This can be a resource extensive process to initiate and maintain.
The distribution of PPE amongst employees needs to be carefully managed. Employees need to receive adequate training to ensure the correct use of PPE, improving health and safety in the workplace. Our SHEQX system provides an integrated approach to managing health and safety regulations in the workplace. In addition, our PPE management module will keep a register of issued PPE and manage the equipment required for the specific job description.
