About claims caused by lack of PPE
Personal protective equipment, or PPE, is protective gear issued to all employees working around harmful or dangerous machinery or substances to reduce the risk of injury.
For example, if your work involves the handling of asbestos, your employer is responsible for issuing correct protective clothing as well as lung protection so that you are not at risk of developing an asbestos-related illness such as lung cancer.
PPE can be used to protect against a number of things; skin irritation, industrial hearing or sight loss, inhalation of chemicals, nerve damage caused by the extensive use of vibrating machinery and more. If your employer fails to issue the correct PPE, or doesn’t take measures to ensure everyone is using it correctly on sight, they could be liable if an accident occurs.
