To ensure safety in the workplace, the employer must first take all technical and organizational measures possible. Taking these measures into account, the right choice of protective clothing must then be made.
When selecting protective clothing, the requirements for the best possible protection on the one hand and for wearing comfort on the other must be weighed against each other.
To this end, the employer must carry out an evaluation of the protective clothing he intends to use. This must be used to determine whether the protective clothing provides
- offers sufficient protection against the hazards to be averted
- the protective clothing itself cannot cause any major hazards
- is suitable for the conditions prevailing at the workplace
- meets the ergonomic requirements and health needs of the employees
- can be adapted to the employees.
