The Risks of Over Protection

The Risks and Dangers of
Over Protection

One of the most common misconceptions about PPE is that the higher the safety standards a product has, the better the product will perform.

Though you may be forgiven for following this logical thinking, our research suggests that over-protection can be just as risky as under-protection.

For instance, if you were looking for a pair of protective gloves, why would you opt for anything less than the most protective glove on the market? Surely, that would be the safest option, no matter what the job in hand was.

Well, not necessarily. Read on to see how using the correct PPE is safer than using the highest standard of PPE.
