SAFETY CLOTHING

Afrikaans: Veiligheidsklere / beskermde klere / beskermende toerusting 

Safety clothing regards items of personal protective equipment (PPE) that are intended to keep the wearer safe from needless risk and danger. PPE is protective clothing, helmets, goggles, or other garments or equipment designed to protect the wearer’s body from injury  The purpose of PPE is to reduce exposure to hazards when using certain equipment that can cause damage / injury to themselves or other assets and imposes a barrier between the wearer / user and the working environment. This can create additional strains on the wearer; impair their ability to carry out their work and create significant levels of discomfort. Any of these can discourage wearers from using PPE correctly, therefore placing them at risk of injury, ill-health or, under extreme circumstances, death. Good ergonomic design can help to minimise these barriers and can therefore help to ensure safe and healthy working conditions through the correct use of PPE.
