Does your employer have to provide you with protective clothing?

Some fields of work mean that you are exposed to particular dangers. These include operating machinery, working on construction sites or in extreme weather conditions.

You must protect yourself from these dangers, for example with protective clothing, noise protection or sun protection. Your employer must provide you with these protective measures.

The law states that your employer must take measures to ensure your health and safety. Your employer also has to provide you with an occupational health and safety briefing/instructions. This briefing must make it possible for you to recognise and avoid hazards.

If you are unsure whether your employer is violating the rules of occupational health and safety, contact your Fair Integration advice centre!
