Key work health and safety statistics
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is anything a worker uses or wears to keep them healthy and safe.
The person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) gives PPE to workers, unless their labour hire company or agency already gave it to them. Workers must use their PPE as instructed by their PCBU.
