Injury caused by inappropriate or lack of PE

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Some of our clients have been given inadequate PPE as a cheap, cost-saving option.  Some were not even aware that the PPE they were using was not suitable and would not protect them from injury.
Your employer’s obligation is more than just providing PPE – your employer may have a duty to insist you wear PPE, or at least advise you how to use it.  The higher the risk of injury, the more likely that PPE is needed.
