• Draw up policies in relation to PPE
  • PPE policies should be simple e.g.

  1. Adopt "new for old" system for disposable PPE - gloves, boots etc
  2. Apply signing in / out procedure for special equipment - harness etc
  3. Implement a points procedure for lost equipment as part of the employees' ownership (as part of the disciplinary procedures)

To be successful, time is required to control and monitor PPE and detailed records must be kept.
