Revised guidance aligned to the Regulations as amended by: the Police (Health and Safety) Regulations 1999, the Health and Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2002 and the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999. 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.
