Personal protective equipment inventory

Personal protective equipment inventory

Like many employers, you may hold PPE in a central store. If so, it’s useful to keep track of what is issued and to whom. Our inventory can help you do this with the minimum of fuss.

PPE inventory

There are numerous types of PPE that don’t need to be personally allocated to staff. This may be on cost or hygiene grounds, or both. Where this applies, you should keep tabs on what you’ve purchased and allocated to staff by using a Personal Protective Equipment Inventory. This comes in a simple table format and allows you to keep a comprehensive record of equipment whereabouts.

Using the inventory

Our sample inventory is personalised for each PPE user with space for their name appearing at the top of the table. Below this, the left-hand side column is headed “items” which corresponds to the PPE that’s in your business. For example, our sample includes gloves, face protection, goggles and ear defenders (this can easily be amended to reflect your own needs). Reading from left to right the columns are entitled type, date issued, signed, date returned and signed. This last one is important as it provides proof that you’ve issued a particular item of equipment to a certain individual; which is useful as some items of PPE are very expensive.
