Norms

Norms for Personal Protective Equipment

​​​​​​​All protective equipment used in the workplace should be CE marked and provide adequate protection against the specific risks to which workers are exposed at all times.

Your safety in the workplace is the employer's responsibility

The employer must ensure that all personal protective equipment complies with current guidelines and is CE marked. The employer is also responsible for ensuring that personal protective equipment is available where required and that necessary training is provided. In the workplace, it should be regularly checked that personal protective equipment is in use, and immediate measures should be taken if required personal protective equipment is not being used. The employer is responsible for establishing routines for the storage, maintenance, repair, and replacement of personal protective equipment, and for ensuring that the equipment is in good hygienic condition. Our product managers are available for consultation on the proper selection of personal protective equipment.
