Risk at Work – Personal protective equipment (PPE)
PPE issued in relation to COVID-19 should only be issued when the risk assessment shows it is necessary.
All PPE issued to prevent the spread of COVID-19 should be:
- correctly fitted, taking into account any impairment or health condition, as well as body shape
- located close to the point of use
- stored to prevent contamination in a clean/dry area until required for use (expiry dates must be adhered to)
- changed immediately after each patient and/or following completion of a procedure or task
- disposed of after use into the correct waste bin/stream.
Covid-19 Personal protective equipment (PPE)
Where a risk assessment shows a need for PPE, the equipment you will get depends on what you do, with whom and where you are working. For many staff, this will consist of items such as gloves and aprons. Those more at risk may require masks and face/eye protection. PPE issued in relation to COVID-19 should only be issued when the risk assessment shows it is necessary.
