If you have a job that has risks associated with carrying out your work your employer should offer you the necessary protection to help you avoid suffering a work related illness. Your employer has a duty to provide you with all the training necessary to help you avoid coming into contact with or exposure to something that will make you ill. You also have the right to be provided with personal protective equipment that is of a high enough standard to minimise any risks to your health. A risk assessment should be carried out by a competent person so that the equipment you are provided with is guaranteed to be effective if protecting you from the hazards in the workplace.
