Personal Protective Equipment: Update
Friday 15 May 2020
The enormous work of the procurement teams across government have helped build the state’s supplies of PPE.
WA is in a far better position now in relation to PPE. There is growing confidence of enough PPE to ensure the safety of workers if we are faced with a surge in COVID infection. The union has been advocating for greater transparency on supply and distribution since the beginning of the crisis.
WA Health has now also completed three different guidelines for the identification and use of PPE.
- Clinical setting (updated 14 May 2020)
- Community setting (New)
- Professional First Responders (New)
Further advice on PPE Pathways has also been included on the WA Health website
