  • 2. P. P. E.P. P. E.
  • 3. Personal Protective Equipment atPersonal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992Work Regulations 1992 • Equipment designed to be worn or held by a person at work for protection against a specific risk (not ordinary work clothes) • Hazard to include inclement weather • Always look at ‘safe place controls’ first • PPE - last stage of control
  • 4. Provision and suitability – Suitable for both Hazard and Ergonomically sound for the Person within the design range Compatibility Assessment of risks Maintenance Storage/ accommodation Information, instruction, training Use by employees, report defect Replacement Personal Protective Equipment atPersonal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992Work Regulations 1992
  • 5. Considerations for Design and UseConsiderations for Design and Use Design hazard & risk required function conditions effective control without increasing overall risk CE marked Wearer health capabilities limitations perception of the hazard fit- ergonomic needs anatomy, av. size, comfort

  • 48. NEBOSH CertificateNEBOSH Certificate Practical Assessment ReportPractical Assessment Report I am writing further to an inspection of the WATA Training Centre, on _______ 2000 which took no more than an hour, my report is as follows :- Training Room Cable The cable from the OHP presents a tripping hazard, from which a visitor or employee could fall and severely damage themselves, this could lead to prosecution of the company and perhaps to individuals. In addition to which the injured person may sue the company or individuals. Should this happen, the insurance premiums could rise and the insurance company impose extra controls. This would be a breach of the Workplace (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations Recommendation Immediately remove the cable at a cost of £150. In the long term consider re – designing The location of the power point NEXT HEADING Produce a paragraph at the end to prioritise all the hazards observed
