The Personal Protective Equipment at Work (PPE) Regulations 1992 requires employers to provide employees with protective equipment where necessary. This register allows you to maintain a record of PPE issued and details of any maintenance requirements.
PPE is equipment which will protect the user against health or safety risks at work. It can include head protection, gloves, eye protection, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear and safety harnesses.
The PPE Regulations do not apply where other regulations require the provision and use of PPE against these hazards. These include The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012; The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 and The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005.
Hearing protection and respiratory protective equipment provided for most work situations are therefore covered by these more specific regulations. However, these items need to be compatible with any other PPE provided.
