Using the correct PPE at work is more important now than ever before. Our CPD approved Personal Protective Equipment 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.
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 PPE 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 the role it plays in the selection and use of PPE, along with discussing other hazard control measures that can be implemented.
Finally, the course will move on to how to use, fit and wear PPE and understand its physical and theoretical limitations.
This course is primarily aimed at people that work in industries such as construction, where there would be a likely need to use a wide range of PPE on a daily basis. 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 course is intended to do is to teach why people 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.
Understanding how and why you should use PPE will mean you are more likely to use it consistently and correctly throughout your work. This has the advantage of reducing your risk of injury.
Our Online training is flexible, efficient and cost-effective, so you can progress through the modules at your own pace, in your own time, making it easy to fit the training around your work and personal life.
