Specific legal requirements for RPE use


The law says that respiratory protective equipment (RPE) used at work must:

  • be "adequate" and provide the wearer with effective protection.
  • be "suitable" for the intended use.
  • be "CE" marked.
  • be selected, used and maintained by properly trained people.
  • be correctly maintained, examined and tested.
  • be correctly stored.
In addition, you will need to keep records of selection, maintenance and testing.

"Adequate"

RPE is considered "adequate" if it can provide a level of protection required to reduce the exposure to comply with the law.

"Suitable"

RPE is considered "suitable" if it is adequate and is matched to the wearer, the task and the working environment, such that the wearer can work with minimum impediment and without additional risks due to the protective equipment.
