Course overview

What is PPE? Well, if you’re asking that question, you’ll definitely need to take this course. PPE is the shorthand way of saying Personal Protective Equipment. And in this context, we’re talking about equipment you might use at work, like hard hats, those luminous wellies and even ear plugs.

It’s not just designed to make you look cool. Or at all, for that matter. It’s there to keep you safe around the workplace, as well as helping you keep compliant with current health and safety regulations. All pretty important stuff, I think you’ll agree.

  • What does and doesn’t constitute PPE
  • PPE legislation
  • Duties of employers and employees
