Equipment and PPE

In accordance with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) at Work Regulations 1992.

PPE must be fit for purpose and suitable for the task, carrying a CE certificate and must be minimum Class 1, 20 m/s rating for chainsaw protection.

I recommend you supply your own PPE as there are many different styles, colours and designs.

One tip I would have is that you go to a shop and try on some PPE; you will spend a long time in this equipment and so you want to make sure that it fits well, not only for comfort but also for safety. PPE varies in price, but you usually get what you pay for.

Different courses require a different list of PPE.
