Re-using PPE

Operatives should appear clean and well-presented, as they are a clear representation of the site, company and industry.

PPE can be cleaned and re-used to ensure that operatives look professional and to reduce waste on site.

Below is an example of how sites have re-used PPE:

  • Due to a high turnover of project dedicated PPE, it was cleaned and refurbished;
  • PPE that still met safety standards could be reused on site;
  • This initiative significantly reduced site waste;
  • Any items that were not reused on site were donated to charities, to benefit communities worldwide.
  • Other sites have used a glove re-use company called SamPPE to collect, wash, repair and safely re-categorise gloves, before reselling back to the donating contractor at a reduced price.
