How to store PPE

PPE must be stored correctly to protect it from contamination, damage, or deterioration.

When PPE is not in use, keep it stored in a clean, dry location e.g. a cupboard. Contaminated PPE must be stored separately, away from other PPE and equipment.

Make sure that PPE can be accessed quickly in an emergency and make employees aware of where PPE is kept in the workplace.

PPE Maintenance

Recommended PPE maintenance should also be followed to keep your personal protective equipment functioning correctly. If PPE is reusable then it must be cleaned properly after every use to keep it in good condition.

It is a good idea to nominate someone who is responsible for PPE maintenance. They must inspect your PPE products regularly and look for signs of wear or faults.

Sharps can easily break the skin and expose people to serious life-threatening infections like HIV and Hepatitis B.

When is PPE used?
Protective cleaning equipment is essential in any environment where workers are at risk of injury from workplace hazards like extreme heat, corrosive liquids, biohazards, or falling objects.

PPE is specially designed to reduce the risk of injury or infection and can be used in a wide variety of industries and settings.

Some common industries that use PPE equipment include healthcare, construction, pharmaceuticals, and specialist cleaning services.

What types of PPE are available?
PPE covers a wide range of equipment including protective coveralls, safety goggles, high-visibility clothing, earmuffs, and hand safety gloves. It also includes respiratory protective equipment (RPE) e.g. air filtering devices.

Employers must identify workplace hazards and invest in suitable PPE to protect employers from harm. Get in touch with our cleaning experts if you are unsure what PPE you need to buy for your business.

PPE equipment must be kept in a clean, dry location when not in use. Make sure that PPE is kept in a convenient location where employees can access it quickly and easily.

Why is PPE important?
Failing to use PPE correctly can lead to serious injuries and fatalities. This can have a severe and lasting impact on employees and their families and have huge cost implications for businesses.

Employers also have a legal responsibility to provide PPE under the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992. Failure to comply with the regulations can lead to fines and negligence claims.

Who is responsible for PPE in the workplace?
Employers have a legal responsibility to provide employees with suitable PPE and to show them how to use it correctly. The responsibility of PPE typically falls on the manager in charge of health and safety within an organisation.
What is PPE training?
It is not enough to simply buy PPE and give it to your employees. PPE equipment is useless if it is used incorrectly and employers have a responsibility to provide adequate PPE training in the workplace.

A PPE training course should cover core topics such as why PPE is essential, how to use and maintain PPE, and how to check PPE for signs of wear and damage. Employers can train their staff internally or hire an external agency to deliver PPE training to their staff.

Can I buy PPE online?
Yes! The Ultima store stocks a wide variety of PPE from leading manufacturers and you can have professional PPE supplies delivered directly to your business facility. It is important that you purchase quality PPE equipment from a reputable manufacturer.
