Employers must provide factory workers with proper equipment and clothing to conduct their job duties such as gloves, goggles, steel-capped boots and non-slip footwear. If no or insufficient protective equipment is provided this can lead to serious injury.
Different types of protective clothing are used in different places of work; the clothing helps to prevent harm to employees. Industries that use protective clothing include manufacturing, construction and agriculture.
Employees must provide sufficient protective clothing and they also must provide workers with training in how to use the clothing. By law an employer must carry out a risk assessment to determine if protection work equipment is required.
Protective equipment includes helmets, safety glasses, gloves, harnesses, and steel toed boots.
If an employee is not provided with the correct protective equipment, or the equipment is insufficient and an accident occurs the employee may be able to claim compensation for injury and associated losses.
