Safety Equipment PPE
Welcome to the SSD Safety website. We specialise in the supply of quality safety equipment PPE to help enhance the safety levels of workforces throughout the UK along with helping to ensure compliance with existing health and safety legislation.
What Do You Need To Know?
How do you know if safety equipment PPE is required? The need for PPE must be identified through risk assessment.
For example, a Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) risk assessment may show that gloves are required when using the substance being assessed. As with all risk assessments, those carrying them out must be competent to do so.
In addition to identifying the need for PPE, it is essential that the right type and grade of PPE is specified and provided.

What is the Suitability of PPE?
To ensure you can identify the right type of safety equipment PPE, a number of factors must be considered, including:
- The potential hazards involved
- The work environment
- The needs of the individual
Some of the additional factors which should be considered include:
- Will the safety equipment PPE be suitable for the potential risk faced where it will be used? e.g. goggles are not suitable when full-face protection is required
- Will the chosen safety equipment PPE prevent or provide a level of control regarding the risks involved by the particular project being completed? e.g. gloves should not be worn when using a pillar drill, due to the increased risk of entanglement
- Can the specified safety equipment PPE be adjusted to ensure the correct fit for the individual involved? e.g. if a person wears glasses, ear defenders may not provide a proper seal to protect against noise hazards
