PPE vital for safety


Sir, I was disturbed to read the prize letter 'Too much PPE makes our brickies less safe' (Letters, August 11) Personal protection equipment is not issued as a first line of defence. I would ask what evidence Mr Burton has to support the accusation that PPE is counter-effective.

Should I win a prize please give the money to a charity for injured construction workers.
