1.26 Personal Protective Equipment.

The contractor shall ensure that risk assessments are carried out to identify those aspects of the work for which personal protective (PPE) is to be prescribed. The contractor shall select PPE appropriate to the work hazards identified. Adequate arrangements are to be made for the storage, cleaning, maintenance and replacement of PPE.

Once a risk has been identified for which PPE has been prescribed and selected, the contractor must take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure that it is used correctly by the relevant persons. This will require the provision of information, instruction and training to staff.

Re assessment of all PPE provided shall be made at regular intervals as methods of working or working conditions change to ensure that the appropriate PPE is being used.
