PPE: Your Last Line of Defence
A lot of work goes into making site investigations safe. From the moment we start planning a job, we will work with the client to make sure our sites are as safe as possible: for engineers, drillers and the general public.
Risk assessments and method statements can go a long way to preparing safe sites. In Health and Safety legislation, PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is seen as a last resort in the hierarchy of control when completing risk assessments. What you wear on site is the final barrier to protect your body: keeping you safe if something goes wrong.
That’s why it’s so important to wear all the correct PPE for the job at hand. Each item of PPE is carefully designed and specified to protect against different types of hazard. Your PPE is your last line of defence in case of accident: make sure you use it wisely.
