Personal protective equipment

If organizational or technical activities, aimed at the elimination or reduction of occupational risk, do not bring satisfying results, the use of personal protective equipment is the ultimate method of protecting workers against hazards. Equipment should be matched to the existing hazard, with the user's ergonomic requirements taken into consideration. Only personal protective equipment that conforms to the basic safety requirements, confirmed in laboratory tests, can ensure adequate protection of the worker's health and safety.
