Personal protective equipment

High-level risk controls must be considered before personal protective equipment (PPE) is selected as the risk control measure. When PPE is selected, it must be appropriate to the WHS risk and must comply with the relevant Australian Standards.

Roads and Maritime supplies a range of PPE for its workers dependent upon the work activity and risk exposure. Workers must be provided with the appropriate training and information necessary for them to use and care for their PPE.

PPE can be ordered through BuyWays.
