Most employers are bound by health and safety laws that they have to abide by in order to keep their workers safe and minimise their risk of exposure to anything hazardous in the workplace. If there are dangerous substances in the workplace then employees must be provided with all of the necessary equipment in order to ensure they receive the maximum protection from the substances they come into contact with.

Safety equipment alone is not sufficient to protect members of staff from dangerous substances in the workplace; employers must provide comprehensive training to all workers new or old about minimising their exposure to the substance by using the safety equipment safely and handling the substances safely. Equipment is useless without the correct training on how to use it. The importance of using the safety devices they are provided with should be made very clear to all workers and rules about using safety equipment should be enforced.
