The requirements for PPE differ from product to product and also depend on the precise intended purpose. For many items in certain areas, it is enough to affix the declaration “Food Standard Approved”. Generally, however, the protective equipment must also meet statutory requirements before it can be authorised for medical use. In addition to a range of different testing methods to determine whether and if so to what extent a product meets the specified criteria, tests for secondary risks are also conducted. These include, for example, allergy-triggering materials.
Quality should always be the priority when selecting a PPE range. It is also essential to use the products in accordance with the specific risk situation and ensure the type and duration of use is in accordance with the Instructions for Use.
