Personal Protective Equipment Overview:
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.
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 Personal Protective Equipment online 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 Personal Protective Equipment e-learning 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.
Finally, the Personal Protective Equipment online course will move on to how to use, fit and wear PPE and understand its physical and theoretical limitations.
