Employer Responsibilities For Aggregate PPE in Cardiff
As an aggregate business based in Cardiff, we understand that the safety of your workers and the public is of paramount importance and therefore ensuring all the correct PPE is in place is essential. Having the correct PPE and safety clothing, especially on quarry sites saves lives. As a bare minimum, legislation dictates that the employer should protect against:
- Head injuries with the provision of head protection gear.
- Hands and feet injuries by providing safety boots and gloves where necessary.
- General safety with the provision of hi-vis jackets.
However, it is also the employer’s responsibility to risk assess the sites and protect against:
- Potentially breathing in toxic or contaminated air.
- Injury from excessive noise or vibration.
- Eye injuries from air-born particles or corrosive liquids.
- Injury to the skin from contact with chemicals, UV radiation, welding radiation, or electrical contact.
