While correctly using PPE can help prevent some exposures in the workplace, it should not take the place of other preventative measures. Examples of PPE include gloves, googles, respiratory protection. Use of PPE may already be required in many workplaces to address occupational health and safety risks, for example exposure to hazardous chemicals such as asbestos. However, in the context of Covid-19 risk, employers must provide PPE and protective clothing to workers in accordance with identified Covid-19 exposure risks and in line with Public Heath advice. Workers must be trained in the proper use, cleaning, storing and disposal of PPE. This training programme will provide workers with information on how to safely put on and remove PPE, the proper use of PPE and how to dispose of it correctly. Information will also be provided on the cleaning and storing of PPE if required.
