Resumen These Regulations give effect in Great Britain to Council Directive 89/656/EEC (see CIS 90-385). They impose health and safety requirements with respect to the provision for, and use by, persons at work of personal protective equipment. Its scope excludes sea transport, the wearing of ordinary working clothes and uniforms, and portable devices for the detection and signalling of risks. Also excluded, for most of the Regulations, is protective equipment used against certain hazards dealt with by other legislation (ionising radiation; noise; falling objects on construction sites; exposure to lead, asbestos and hazardous substances in general). Topics covered: obligation of the employer to provide suitable personal protective equipment; compatibility and assessment of such equipment; maintenance and replacement; accommodation of equipment; information, instruction and training; use; reporting of loss and defects; exemption certificates. Certain other Regulations are modified. Some Regulations, including The Protection of Eyes Regulations 1974 (CIS 75-503), are revoked.
