Personal Protection Equipment Online Course

The primary goal of this Personal Protective Equipment course is to educate individuals on the importance of using the provided PPE. This message will be particularly impactful in those work settings where the significance of PPE may not be as readily recognised.

In the UK, there are approximately 144 workplace fatalities and around 621,000 non-fatal injuries every year. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) plays a vital role in managing health and safety risks. However, historical data shows that many workers who have suffered injuries were not wearing this clothing.

This course will demonstrate how wearing PPE is crucial in preventing and reducing fatalities, injuries, and diseases that could occur in the workplace. It provides details on a wide range of PPE options, examines the legislation and regulations governing the responsibilities of employers, employees, and suppliers. A real-life case study will illustrate the application of these laws.

The course will also cover risk assessment and its role in selecting and using PPE. It will discuss other hazard control measures that can be put in place. Additionally, the course will address how to use, fit, and wear PPE, as well as understanding its physical and theoretical limitations.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the legislation surrounding the use of PPE, legal obligations, and the safety standards that need to be met for PPE to be effective and safe to use.
  • Recognize that PPE is the last choice in the hierarchy of control and must only be used when stated as appropriate in risk assessments.
  • Evaluate the different types of PPE, state where it provides protection, and understand that PPE can be used in combination as 3 or 5 point protection.
  • Understand the need for good maintenance of PPE and then where it can’t be maintained, it should be replaced.
  • Create effective methods to ensure broken or PPE that needs maintaining is not used.
