Personal Protective Equipment Information, Training & Instruction

Workers must be provided with enough information, training and instruction on when to use PPE and how to:

  • use, fit and wear it including any adjustments that may be needed
  • carry out repair or replace parts
  • clean and store it correctly.

When wearing more than one item of PPE to protect against substances, such as hazardous chemicals or biological substances, it is important to put on and remove each item correctly. If hands could become contaminated when removing PPE, it is important to wash them thoroughly to prevent accidental contamination.
