9. Protective Clothing

Where protective clothing is provided it must be worn. It is a strict legal offence for an employee to abuse or disregard safety equipment. You are obliged to use all personal protective equipment which has been provided following a detailed assessment.

One of the major causes of injury in the work place is a cut to the hand. Personal protective clothing in the form of gloves is a significant method of protection from such injuries. Gloves should always be worn when handling sharp items and when moving loads.

Persons wishing to handle chemicals must first read the material assessment to determine the precise nature of the clothing required for any particular product.
