When can Personal Protective Equipment be used?

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is one of the least effective ways of controlling risks to health and safety and should only be used:

·         when there are no other practical control measures available (as a last resort)

·         as an interim measure until a more effective way of controlling the risk can be used, or

·         to supplement higher level control measures (as a back-up).
