PPE Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
Personal Protective Equipment is defined as ‘all equipment (including clothing affording protection against the weather) which is intended to be worn or held by a person at work protecting him/her against one or more risks to his/her health or safety.’
How does it work?
The PPE Toolbox Talk (UK) app is an excellent resource that helps identify the risks and the PPE that helps protect workers from workspace hazards. For example, eyes can be subject to chemical or metal splash, dust, projectiles, gas/vapors. PPE options include safety glasses, goggles, face shields, and visors. Hazards that could impact head injuries include bumps, impact from falling or flying objects and might require range of helmets and bump caps. Breathing problems can be caused by dust, vapor, gas, or oxygen-deficient atmospheres. Disposable filtering face piece or respirators (half or full-face respirators), air-fed helmets, and breathing apparatus are suggested PPE. Protecting the body against temperature extremes, chemical or metal splash, spray from pressure leaks or spray guns, impact or penetration, contaminated dust can be taken care of using conventional or disposable overalls, boiler suits, specialist protective clothing, e.g. chain-mail aprons, and high visibility clothing. Abrasions, cuts and punctures, and skin infection often affect hands and arms. Gloves, gauntlets, mitts, wrist cuffs, and armlets are appropriate protection.
