This time we look at “Personal Safety Equipment”.

Personal safety equipment is equipment whose purpose is to protect you in your work.
It includes any equipment designed to protect the wearer’s body from safety or health hazards.

It is your legal right in Israel to demand from your employer personal safety equipment for all the types of work you are involved in. For example: high closed shoes, goggles, earplugs and gloves.

When dangers cannot be prevented by building or installing protections, the law requires employers to provide workers with personal safety equipment.
