PK Safety’s app, called aPPE and launched initially in the recycling sector, simplifies the process of identifying, selecting and purchasing personal protection equipment (PPE).
Available to download on mobile phones and tablets, the aPPE visually presents the user with a number of options. Once the environment and hazards have been selected, the app then presents the user with options that fit the criteria.
A typical hazard could be cuts to the hands and, by selecting ‘cut protection’, the user would be presented with safety gloves suitable for that application, with the app ‘dressing’ a mannequin with the selected PPE.
It also helps to navigate the wide range of legislation,guidance documents, approved codes of practice, research papers and industry practices by providing health and safety solutions based on industry knowledge.
The aPPE is free to download and there is no obligation to purchase any of the equipment from PK Safety.
