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
