About PPE:

Do people at a workplace, other than the work need to use personal protective equipment?

A person other than a worker must wear the personal protective equipment at the workplace in accordance with any information, training or reasonable instruction provided by their person conducting a business or undertaking.

How do I choose the right personal protective equipment for the job?

When choosing the right personal protective equipment (PPE) for the job the selection processes must include consultation with users and their representatives and should also include: ·         a detailed evaluation of the risk and performance requirements for the PPE ·         compatibility of PPE items where more than one type of PPE is required (for example ear muffs with a hard hat) ·         consultation with the supplier to ensure PPE is suitable for the work and workplace conditions, and ·         preference for PPE that complies with the relevant Australian Standard or equivalent standard.

What standard of Personal Protective Equipment is required?

The standard of personal protective equipment used at a workplace must be: ·         selected to minimise risk to health and safety ·         suitable for the nature of the work and any hazard associated with the work ·         a suitable size and fit and reasonably comfortable for the person wearing it ·         maintained, repaired or replaced so it continues to minimise the worker’s health and safety risk, and ·         used or worn by the worker, so far as is reasonably practicable.

When should persons conducting a business or undertaking provide personal protective equipment?

If personal protective equipment (PPE) is required, the person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) who is directing the work must provide PPE to workers at the workplace, unless it has been provided by another PCBU. This will usually be the person’s employer but could also be, for example, a main contractor at the workplace. It is an offence for a PCBU to charge or levy a worker for PPE, or cause a worker to be charged. Workplace relations laws also prohibit deductions from employee’s wages for work-related items such as PPE.

When can Personal Protective Equipment be used?

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is one of the least effective ways of controlling risks to health and safety and should only be used: ·         when there are no other practical control measures available (as a last resort) ·         as an interim measure until a more effective way of controlling the risk can be used, or ·         to supplement higher level control measures (as a back-up). safety footwear        chef footwear         pu insole        nurse shoes
