#265 PPE standards PFAS and what you need to know about the firekit your wearing with David Matthews
Show Notes

What do you really know about the Firefighting PPE you wear every day ?

More worryingly how qualified and informed do you think the individuals in your service tasked with choosing this PPE are ?

David is recognised as the UK lead for PPE standards and also a World Class Negotiator, Chairing International, European and British Committees, for all PPE standards.

Today we discuss the evolution of Firefighting PPE and the hazards it protects us from as well as shine some light on the PFAS discussion and what threat this poses to firefighters and the leaders.
