What happens if an injured worker failed to wear PPE?
Question: Could you please advise obligations/responsibilities for employers/supervisors/employees where an employee is injured due to failure to wear appropriate PPE? Employees have been provided with the relevant PPE, trained in its proper use, there are signs up advising when and where PPE should be used and Safety Work Method Statements (SWMSs) advising you ‘MUST’ or it is ‘ESSENTIAL’ to wear PPE. All employees have reviewed the SWMSs and have agreed to the content.
