Fugro LADS Corporation shall as far as is reasonably practicable eliminate or control hazards in the workplace, in accordance with the hierarchy of control. PPE shall only be implemented as a control measure:
■ Where it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate or minimise risks through other control measures; or

An employee who does not wear or use PPE, or intentionally misuses or damages it, may also face prosecution.
5.5 Others (i.e. contractors/visitors)
A person other than an employee must wear the personal protective equipment at the workplace in accordance with any information, training or reasonable instruction provided by Fugro LADS Corporation.
6.1 Risk Assessment
The requirement to wear or use PPE shall be determined by risk assessment in accordance with FLC’s Risk Management Procedure (FLC-IMS-PR-001). The Hierarchy of Risk Control Measures must be followed to manage risks to ALARP . Completely eliminating the risk at the source is always the preference to risk reduction.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is one of the least effective ways of controlling risks to health and safety and should only be used:
■ When there are no other practical control measures available (as a last resort)
■ As an interim measure until a more effective way of controlling the risk can be used, or
■ To supplement higher level control measures (as a back-up).
This is emphasised in that the use of PPE can cause additional problems. It should be noted
