Survey on preferred format for user instructions for Personal Protective Equipment

News item logo for partner

User Instructions are essential for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and need to be provided with each product. However, the format in which they are provided is not necessarily printed but could be digital.

Also, for PPE suppliers, sustainability is important. Providing digital instructions is one of many steps towards a decrease of the ecological footprint.

Therefore, the European Safety Federation (organisation of suppliers of PPE) would like to get some insight in the needs and behaviour of users of PPE concerning these instructions. We prepared a short survey (maximum 5 minutes for a dozen multiple choice questions). As we want to get responses from as many users as possible, the survey is available in 26 European languages.

A summary of the results will be made publicly available after the summer break.

Please share this message within your network and colleagues using PPE.

The survey can be found on (click on the top right of the survey page to select your language).
