Personal protective equipment refers to protective clothing, footwear, auxiliary devices and devices that are used to prevent injuries at work, occupational diseases, work-related illnesses and other harmful consequences for the health of the employee (“Official Gazette of RS”, no. 101/2005 and 91/2015). This means that personal protective equipment is any equipment that is worn or held by the user for the protection of one or more of the risks to his health and safety, as well as:
- Equipment consisting of several devices, accessories, tools or other components made by the manufacturer, ie. connected to one functional unit in order to protect the user of such equipment from one or more potentially simultaneous risks;
- Protective devices that are fixed or detachable, or connected with some other personal equipment (not protective equipment), which the user carries or holds while performing certain activities at work;
- Interchangeable PPE components that are essential for its proper functioning and used exclusively for such equipment. Any device, ie. a system that is placed on the market together with PPE, in order to connect it with another external additional device, is considered to be an integral part of that PPE, even if that system is not intended to be carried by the user or permanently held during the whole period of risk exposure.
It is required that personal protective equipment is divided into following categories:
1. Category I (simple) includes PPE, which the manufacturer or his agent intended for the user who can assess the degree of protection against minimal risks by himself if that risks can be safetly and timely determined (if they appear gradually).
2. Category II (plain) includes PPE which is not PPE Category I or PPE category III.
3. Category III (demanding) includes PPE, which is intended to protect against fatalities, as well as the dangers that seriously and permanently could damage health and whose immediate effects are anticipated by the manufacturer or his agent, but cannot be determined by the user of that equipment in a timely manner.

Law on occupational safety and health obliges all employers to adopt the Risk Assessment Act for all workplaces in the work environment. This must be done in formal writing. The risk assessment act is a document that describes the work process with assessing the risk of injuries or endangering health at a workplace in the work environment, as well as measures to eliminate or reduce risks in order to improve safety and health at work. The risk assessment act is made by a person responsible for safety and health at work.
The risk assessment (Risk Assessment Act) is a review of all aspects of the work, with the aim of identifying elements that can cause injury or damage at work, according to the risks and hazards list given by the Rulebook on the method and procedure for risk assessment, the Risk Assessment Manual of the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work and EU Checklist for each individual profession. Thanks to those regulations, potential risks are easily removed and preventive or protective measures are introduced, which will control the risk and create conditions for risk management. This is all done in order to create conditions for safe work of employees, reduction of work-related injuries and diseases.
The Risk Assessment Act is a document which defines the potential risks and hazards to which employees are exposed during the performance of their duties. The definition of hazards and harmfulness, as well as the measures for their elimination, is carried out by studying the job descriptions contained in the Labor Contract, the Rulebook on Internal Organization and Systemization of jobs and the interview with employees. Risk assessment is not carried out in general, but is concertized for each individual workplace.
The Risk Assessment Act defines which standards personal protective equipment has to fulfill. When selecting equipment, always check what is provided in the Risk Assessment Act and consult the person authorized for occupational safety.
Unexpected situations are something that occasionally occur in every business. Sudden, unplanned risks cannot always be avoided. We must reconcile with this uncertainty. For all other cases, our equipment is there for you.
