Use of tight-fitting RPE

Following the removal of some coronavirus restrictions in England, the HSE want to remind all sectors of the importance of the correct use of RPE.

Employers have a duty to protect the health, safety, and welfare of their employees, and others who might be affected by their business. Issues to consider when assessing risks include:

  • When tight-fitting RPE should be used

  • How to select the right RPE for the job, and

  • The importance of fit testing to ensure a good fit, including the need to be clean shaven, as part of your RPE programme

Visit their RPE basics webpage for more information.
