Why is PPE Important?

why is ppe important

When it comes to dressing to impress, you may not think about PPE. PPE stands for ‘Personal Protective Equipment’, so while it may not be making an appearance at London fashion week, it is still incredibly important. PPE is essentially anything you can wear that will protect you against any hazardous conditions.


PPE is important because it prepares you for any health and safety risks and gives you extra protection event of an accident or against the elements. Here at SafetyLiftinGear we have a wide selection of PPE that helps protect you against a range of hazardous situations, to view our full collection of PPE click here.

Here’s a closer look at some of the important PPE we offer:

High Visibility Clothing

High Vis Clothing
High visibility clothing allows others to see you from a greater distance. On a construction site, PPE allows other workers, and drivers to see you with ease. In a busy working environment with lots of equipment, it’s imperative that you are easily spotted.

High visibility clothing is made using fluorescent materials and reflective components so that you stand out wherever you are, for your safety and the safety of others.

Hard Hats

Hard Hats
It’s not uncommon for construction sites to have a ‘no hat, no job’ policy. In an environment where heavy items may be falling it is important that your head is always protected. It’s never worth taking a risk, so always make sure you have appropriate headgear.

Eye Protection

Protective Glasses
People often neglect their eye safety, but taking your vision for granted would be greatly regretted in the case of an accident – particularly if it could have been easily avoided. Eye protection means that your eyes are safe from flying debris, dust and hazardous liquids that could damage your vision.
