What Do You Wear For PPE In The Workplace?
For most office spaces, PPE consists of a face covering or face screen that your office may provide for you. However, it is recommended you have a few of your own so you can continue to use them outside of work and have a backup if one goes missing. What your office could provide for you, depending on its needs, is Social Distancing Supplies such as signage, floor tape to section out walkways, and protective desk screens or separators.
What Is Health And Safety Control Equipment?
Health and safety control equipment includes a range of equipment, furniture, and supplies that are integral to maintaining health and safety standards in your workplace. Depending on your workplace, these can vary greatly. For example, protective clothing such as Hard Headwear and High-Visibility Clothing are needed for safe warehouse operation, and Fire Safety Equipment is needed everywhere, from office to classroom. In the modern world, we’ve seen health and safety control equipment come to represent something different: workplace PPE or personal protective equipment. This can include but isn’t limited to face masks, social distancing signs, and Infection Control.
Who Is Responsible For PPE In The Workplace?
PPE in the workplace has typically been a shared responsibility in the workplace insofar that you should definitely have and bring your own facemasks and hand sanitiser, but you as an office manager or facilities management professional should prepare the necessary on-site PPE. Anything that is required for your team to fulfil their role within current safety guidelines that is workplace-based, such as desk screens and hand sanitising stations, should be provided by the office. We make it easy to order these essential pieces of safety equipment, especially if you create a business account with us.
