What is a PPE issue record form?

The PPE Issue Record Form is a tool designed to systematically document the issuance of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to employees.

This form captures essential details such as the type of PPE, date of issue, and recipient information.

Its purpose is to maintain an organised record of PPE distribution, ensuring accountability, compliance with safety protocols, and the overall well-being of employees within the workplace.
