Hazardex 2018 Conference - 16. – Practical effects of recent changes in regulations governing PPE

31 January 2018

Frank Angear - General Manager, British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF). 
Thurs 12.15 – 12.55: Main conference room

With the new PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425 coming into force it is vital that both commercial operators and users of product understand the implications and that there is a consensus of understanding.

Personal Protective Equipment plays a vital role in ensuring that occupational safety and health is maintained. We are both in the midst of Brexit and in the middle of the timeline for the new Regulation becoming applicable and being applied exclusively from 2019.

BSIF’s seminar will take delegates through a step by step process illustrating the actions that must be executed to ensure that products are in compliance.

As those involved in the PPE market are aware, the risks and therefore the products providing protection are placed into risk categories (Categories I, II & III) and each category requires a range of compliance actions and differing levels of quality assurance once any necessary type testing and EU examination certificate has been granted. The presentation will walk the audience through the process in logical bite-sized steps.

Frank Angear (DipM MCIM) is General Manager of the British Safety Industry Federation, controlling the Secretariat function for all BSIF Associations, Product Groups and Working Groups. Frank also maintains a running brief in developing the Federation’s influence with the UK Government, Members of Parliament, the European Commission, the UK’s Regulatory Bodies, and independent stakeholder organisations.
Frank has worked in the safety and health industry for over 40 years in national and international Sales, Training and Marketing roles within PPE manufacture, as well as maintaining active participation in a number of Technical Committees, Industry Working Groups, BSI Standards Committees and BSI and ISO Standards Drafting Groups.
