Personal protective equipment (PPE) is equipment that will protect you against health and safety risks at work.

About the course

PPE is incredibly important because it provides a last line of defence against injury, and it can save your life. But only if you use it.

Regrettably, people continue to sustain head injuries because they don’t wear hard hats.

Feet are damaged because people choose to not wear safety shoes.

And people foolishly risk their sight, because they won’t wear eye protection.

Injuries can result in permanent disabilities, blindness, or even death.

In this PPE Awareness course, we will explain why not taking PPE seriously can have devastating consequences.

We’ll look at some common PPE types and the hazards they protect people from.

And we’ll discuss how you can look after your PPE, so it can continue to look after you.
