PPE Inspections for centres and activity providers

Inspections of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are absolutely essential to ensure the safety of you and your clients. It is also a legal requirement that you have accurate, detailed up to date PPE records. These fall under Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER), the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 2002, and the Personal Protective Equipment at work Regulations 1992.
