The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 2022 amend the 1992 Regulations to extend employers' and employees' duties in respect of PPE to a wider group of workers.
Changes in this edition include:
Required following Regulation (EU) 2016/425 (as incorporated into UK law), which sets out the essential health and safety requirements that must be met before PPE products can be placed on the market of Great Britain (GB). The purpose of the legislation is to ensure safe and effective products are placed on the GB market by requiring manufacturers to show how their products meet the 'essential health and safety requirements'. The Personal Protective Equipment (Enforcement) Regulations 2018 provide a system for the enforcement of the 2016 regulation.
As a result of the Personal Protective Equipment at Work (Amendment) Regulations 2022, which created a new definition of worker to which the Regulations now apply.
As a result of the Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 Schedule 35 in relation to the placing of PPE on the UK market.
