How to use Personal protective equipment correctly
Instruction on the correct usage of PPE (according to German legislation DGUV R 112-198)

Personal protective equipment (PPE) against falling protects the user against a deadly fall accident. A proper instruction on how to use these equipment’s is both legally required as well as highly recommended. Also, such instruction needs to be undertaken every 12 months.

The liability having workers sufficiently training on how to use PPE against falling is with the employer. It is our pleasure consulting you and providing an individual, close to real-life training – just matching your unique areas of application.
