European Union legislation requires employers to safeguard the health & safety of their employees at work. In the United Kingdom this obligation falls under the Health & Safety at Work Regulations which for protective clothing were enshrined in the PPE at Work Regulations 1992.
In terms of protective clothing, this places an obligation on employers to provide employees with PPE which not only meets specified safety standards for the relevant occupation but remains fit for purpose throughout its service life. This places a responsibility on the employer to regularly monitor, inspect and maintain any PPE worn by employees.
Bristol’s managed services provide a comprehensive and integrated outsourced facility for PPE users through which these health & safety requirements are met. Our specialist team is fully equipped with the skills, as well as the test and monitoring equipment, needed to carry out all the processes required to ensure the lifetime performance integrity of all types of PPE supplied to our customers.
