Re: Can an employer charge for PPE?

A lot of places do that these days and £35 seems reasonable. The only thing i would add is that whatever you buy will not be on their approved list of footwear and should an accident happen and an individual potentially looks to seek compensation from the company due to lets say loss fo earning from...

Re: suspension trauma

WOW, I have just been informed by an H&S professional that suspension trauma is a myth! I disagree with that statement but it has been a topic that has been debated over the years.
