What are PPE lockers?

PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment and PPE lockers are storage units designed for safely storing equipment such as helmets, safety footwear, high-visibility clothing, gloves and eye protection

PPE storage requirements

It’s important that PPE is correctly stored in any workplace, as this ensures that the garments and equipment are clean and suitable for use.

  • PPE storage lockers (or similar storage solutions) must be able to protect PPE from contamination, damage, loss or deterioration. They should comply with The Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992.
  • If PPE is reusable, it must be cleaned and in good condition. PPE which cannot be used again should be disposed of and items which can be reused but are contaminated should be stored separately.
  • PPE that is ready for use should be separated from any items needing maintenance.
  • PPE should be stored safely when not in use.
  • Employees should understand how to correctly and safely store their PPE items and the importance of keeping it in a good condition.

Here at Manutan, our PPE lockers are compliant with Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992. They also have other quality and safety features, such as PPE labelling on locker doors (so staff know where to store their protective clothing and equipment), a ventilation system for good airflow and antibacterial powder coating to prevent bacterial contamination.

Find out more about PPE and employers’ responsibilities on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website.

Where is PPE stored?

If your workplace requires the use of PPE, then you will need to have adequate storage solutions on site that your staff can use. PPE storage lockers are a common storage option as they can be securely locked and have other safety features such as ventilation systems.

Whatever type of unit you have for your PPE, you should ensure that the location of this is away from harsh conditions, such as damp areas and is easily accessible to those who need it. It’s also well worth having extra PPE on site in case any equipment is damaged or contaminated.

Why is it important to store and maintain PPE correctly?

PPE is designed to protect employees at work against health and safety risks. By storing and maintaining PPE correctly (whether this be in PPE lockers or similar compartments), you can minimise the risk of PPE becoming damaged, lost or contaminated which would compromise the level of safety and security it provides.

Employers have a duty to ensure that PPE is looked after and stored properly when not in use.
