PPE Claims (Personal Protective Equipment)

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the equipment that you need to wear or use to protect you from risk of injury.This could include dust masks, helmets, safety boots, gloves, ear defenders and safety goggles. The law says that your employer should provide PPE because it is their duty to ensure that all reasonable steps are taken to ensure you are safe in carrying out your job. This PPE should be provided to you free of charge and should be checked before it is used to make sure it is suitable for the required tasks. It should also be both regularly maintained and correctly stored.

Can I claim for faulty or inappropriate PPE?

Many accidents still occur in the workplace due to faulty or inappropriate PPE or even because equipment or training has not been provided. Common injuries associated with faulty PPE include crush injuries, lacerations and hearing damage. In some instances, improper PPE equipment and training can even lead to death when employees are carrying high risk jobs - for example, where harnesses and safety ropes are being used. You should also receive thorough and frequent training on how to use the PPE correctly, and your employer must ensure that you are fully competent in using the PPE prior to being allowed to use it and carry out the task that requires it. If you have been injured as a result of being given faulty or inappropriate PPE equipment or training, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury if it can be proved that your employer has been negligent.
