Accordingly, this documents changes to regulations 3, 4, 6 and 9 and reflects developments in personal protective equipment (PPE) standards. In two parts: the first presents the regulatory requirements with guidance for each citation; the second examines PPE types - and hazards requiring such - with advice on selection, use and maintenance.
Encompasses head, eye, foot, hand and arm protection and other safety clothing. Also considers fall-protection systems and drowning protection. Styled presentation (eg bold, italics, colour-coding) enables easy distinction between texts pertaining to the Regulations and additional guidance. Illustrated.
