Do you know what PPE management really is?

Monday, October 9, 2017

If you’re heading to the A+A international trade fair and congress then it’s a fair bet you already know what personal protective equipment (PPE) is. But are you on top of PPE management?

While PPE is all about equipping your people with things that will keep them safe, PPE management is about knowing those things are up to the task: that they are not out of date, have passed all relevant inspections and so on.

It is important because in PPE the status of an item can be just as important as its availability. A harness that is not in its legal inspection date, for example, is no more use than no harness at all.

For all its importance, though, PPE management is still often relegated to the status of an administrative chore. And in fairness, managing PPE with manual methods such as spreadsheets can be a pain. But there is no need for it.

With systems such as Papertrail, you can make sure PPE management is simple, standardised and robust. If you want to know more, then why not start with the following online resources:

And if you are still hungry for information then book a demo or look us up at A+A in Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 17 to 20.
