PPE and Duty of Care Forum

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is the last line of defence for firefighters yet few Fire & Rescue Services fully understand how the latest generation of protective clothing works or how it should be managed effectively in the light of imminent EU-wide chemical restrictions. 

The event covers:

  • Disposal of firefighting clothing that contains restricted chemicals
  • Maintenance of clothing containing restricted chemicals
  • Legal and financial obligations regarding current contracts
  • Legal and financial obligations of service contracts
  • Managing a potential transition to non-PFOA PPE
