In 1989 the Personal Protective Regulations (PPE) were introduced to protect the European workforce. The law divided PPE into three categories, according to the level of protection offered.
- CE Simple: Category 1 minimal risk
- CE Intermediate: Category 2
- CE Complex: Category 3 risk of serious / mortal danger
Guidelines have been drawn up within the CE Complex category to help users identify the correct garment for the task. These are called ‘Types’ and are listed below:
- Type 1 – Gas Tight clothing
- Type 2 – Non-Gas tight clothing
- Type 3 – Liquid Tight clothing
- Type 4 – Spray Tight clothing
- Type 5 – Particle Protection
- Type 6 – Limited Splash Protection
Meeting your legal responsibilities
As an employer you’re required by law to complete the following:
- Eliminate risk wherever possible
- Assess the need for protective clothing in your work environment
- Provide garments that protect the user against risk free of charge
- Train the wearer on how and when protective clothing must be worn.
We’re committed to working with you to meet all these criteria.
What you should demand of us
European regulations demand manufacturer’s products:
- Satisfy safety requirements based on the category of protection claimed
- Are subject to Type-examination by an approved body
- Carry a CE mark and information about the products
- Are manufactured under an approved quality system
We meet all of these criteria, as all of our KLEENGUARD® XP Protective overalls carries a CE mark awarded by SGS, an internationally recognised Certification body.
European legislation can be confusing. Our protective clothing pyramid will help demystify legislation by providing an overview of levels of protection according to design and ‘Type’.
In simple terms the lower down the pyramid, the lower the level of protection.
Just use your risk assessment in conjunction with our pyramid to help identify the level of protection you need.
