Personal Protective Equipment

In the Forestry Commission we all need to look after our own and others’ health and safety.  A significant part of this is to:

  • be seen;
  • be safe; and
  • be well protected.

In this booklet we will deal with our policy, responsibilities and all the relevant aspects of:

  • eye protection
  • safety helmets
  • high-visibility clothing
  • safety footwear
  • chainsaw clothing, and
  • waterproof, weatherproof or insulated clothing.
