Basic surveyor PPE should include:
i) Body protection (hard wearing overalls with suitable pockets for notebook etc).
ii) Foot protection (steel toecaps (200 joules), steel midsoles, good grip, oil
iii) Head protection (hard hat with chinstraps)
iv) Hand protection (hard wearing gloves).
v) Eye protection (protective glasses, goggles).
vi) Ear protection (ear defenders or ear plugs worn subject to communication
vii) Lighting (hand held torch with lanyard and appropriate beam width).
viii) Safety harness
A safety harness is meant to be worn correctly so that it can fulfil its design requirements, which is to provide security against falling and allowing the wearer to use both hands to complete tasks, especially when working aloft. By not using a harness one increases the risk of falling and, in doing so, causing possible injury to others as well. A '5 point' safety harness fitted with a 'fall arrest' device should always be used. Fall arresters act as shock absorbers and slow the fall gradually over short distances. The harness webbing and lanyard should be inspected regularly for cuts, abrasions or damage to stitching.
