Asbestos PPE

When Was Your Last Mask Check?

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is the one thing that stands directly between asbestos contractors and dangerous substances. Despite the legislative drive to maintain accurate records against all types of equipment, manual data management and processing can often lead to lost, misplaced or illegible records. The outcome of which can be extremely harmful, both to contractors and the environment.


For all equipment, be it PPE, Respiratory Equipment or Hygiene Units, their upkeep and maintenance is absolutely crucial to running a safe and efficient Asbestos Removal business. With manual data management processing can be slow, inaccurate dates can be added and paperwork can easily get lost or made illegible in transit between the office and the field.
