The purpose of the Personal Protective Equipment Policy is to protect the employees of PHILCORE and subcompany and contractors from exposure to work place hazards and the risk of injury, through the proper use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
It is a fact that at the worksite, there is always an inherent amount of risk involved that needs mitigating.
Personal protective equipment will be provided, used, and maintained when it has been determined that its use is required to ensure the safety and health of our employees and that such use will lessen the likelihood of occupational injury and/or illness.
As a minimum for our own staff and contractor employees, at worksites (onshore and offshore) indicating the requirements for PPE:
PPE signs must be put up at appropriate locations and be visible to all; reminding us of those requirements. If you feel that required PPE is inadequate for the job, do not hesitate to request additional or special types of PPE specific to the nature of the activity, which must be specified on Permit to Work.
