Welcome to our monthly Health & Safety podcast with Napthens H&S. In this episode, Head of Health Safety, Chris Walker, discusses the common misunderstanding and mispractice of mitigating risk by having PPE.
All too often many businesses and in most industry sectors, PPE is seen as the only matter of importance as far as health and safety is concerned, good health and safety is only evident in a business if everyone is wearing a hi viz vest and a hard hat – whether there’s a relevant risk that would necessitate their use or not!
Yet as an employer, you should be doing all that you can to properly understand the potential risks faced by your employees and others affected by your work activities and then find effective means of control.
Listen to the podcast below and find out what you should be doing!
