Contributing to the national response

Despite having to suspend our usual services during the initial stages of lockdown, our occupational health and hygiene teams were kept very busy supporting both HSE’s and wider Government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Our scientists and technical experts have been supporting HSE’s recently formed PPE Unit by providing their specialist knowledge of personal protective equipment (PPE), material science and regulatory requirements to help the Unit make effective decisions in order to get PPE to where it was needed.

They have also contributed to the recent safety alert on KN95 repirators, as well as conducting research as part of the recently published rapid review of PPE provided in health care settings to manage risk during the coronavirus outbreak.
