The training course teaches employees:


  • The range and uses of PPE items available
  • The correct use, maintenance and storage of PPE
  • The importance of reporting defective or damaged items of PPE
  • The benefits and limitations of PPE

"We are the only supplier able to offer such a wide range of courses in a completely editable format and this new PPE course sets new standards for the health and safety E-Learning industry", added Julian.
