The Trust has a duty to provide employees with the necessary PPE to ensure that they are adequately and sufficiently protected from harm whilst carrying out their work. There is also a duty to ensure that employees undergo supervised practical training in the correct donning and doffing of PPE. Where employees are required to wear a number of PPE items together, the employer should provide additional supervised practical training in donning and doffing the PPE in the correct sequence to ensure that the wearer does not become injured or ill by doing it incorrectly or in the wrong order.

Unison Health & Safety would be grateful if you could take a couple of minutes to complete this survey, the results of which will provide a clear and accurate reflection of PPE training currently being undertaken.
