2018 has been another monumental year for Personal Protective Equipment at BSI.
The 21 April 2018 saw the introduction of the PPE regulation. At BSI, we're committed to helping you to understand what's changing and when. Our experts can work alongside you to explain the changes in legislation in a clear way, so you can be confident in knowing what's required to make sure your products comply with the new regulation.

A-head of the game: PPE Safety in Sports
In November at our Centre of Excellence in Hemel Hempstead, BSI hosted a thought provoking PPE seminar focused on protective headwear and the impact of head injuries in sport.
Luke Griggs from Headway (the brain injury association) stressed the importance of researchers and manufacturers having a better understanding of the real-life impact of brain injuries, in order to better inform product design. Roy Burek from Charles Owen (makers of the equestrian headwear) offered a manufacturers perspective, highlighting the role that standards play in both safety and continual improvement of protective equipment.
This unique event provided the opportunity for BSI to engage and strengthen relationships with sports associations and build awareness around the importance of PPE protection within sports. A special thanks to all those that made this event possible, and to those that attended.
2019 Events and Exhibitions
We're delighted to confirm our attendance at two shows in 2019. You can of course keep track of all our events here, but below some highlighted events for PPE in 2019:
2019 looks set to be a very busy year. With continued implementation of the PPE Regulation in April, we are expecting to be working closely with manufacturers to help provide as smooth transition as possible during this big industry change.
Finally I’d just like to say thanks for your support in 2018 and we look forward working with you in 2019.
