Our Occupational Hygienist, Rosie McKay, has supported many businesses with their RPE requirements.
Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), employers have a responsibility to protect their workforce from hazardous substances. Depending on the circumstances and level of risk, you may need to provide your employees with RPE.
We will make sure that your RPE is adequate to reduce the level of exposure and is suitable for the task, wearer and environment.
We can assist with RPE selection, assess the RPE you currently use and make sure you are fully compliant with legislation such as the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002, the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2012, the Control of Lead at Work Regulations 2002 and the HSE’s HSG53 ‘Respiratory protective equipment at work’ guidance.
From a more practical perspective we can explain exactly what RPE will be best for your workforce and the tasks they undertake. We can provide training to your staff on RPE use including how to maintain and store RPE.
