What is Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)?

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.

Candidates understanding how and why they should use PPE will mean they are more likely to use it consistently and correctly throughout their work. This has the advantage of reducing their risk of injury.

Who is the PPE Course Suitable For?

This online PPE course is primarily aimed at people who work in industries such as construction where they are likely to need to use a wide range of PPE daily. 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 Personal Protective Equipment 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.

What's Included in the Personal Protective Equipment Course?

This online Personal Protective Equipment e-learning 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. The course 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 its role in the selection and use of PPE along with discussing other hazard control measures that can be implemented.
