The report is in relation to a variation to
the current contract to include additional garments for the new
Approval to include additional garments onto
NYCC’s PPE core list to enable staff who currently work for
the District and Borough councils within North Yorkshire to
purchase the items they require from 1 April 2023 under North
Yorkshire Council (NYC).
This will increase the anticipated whole life cost to beyond £500,000.
Under the Personal Protective Equipment at
Work (Amendment) Regulations 2022, there is a duty placed on every
employer in Great Britain to ensure that suitable PPE is provided
to employees who may be exposed to a risk to their health or safety
while at work.
In preparation for the Local Government Reorganisation, it has been established that the most appropriate option for PPE and uniform provision for NYC will be by adding additional garments to NYCC’s core list to enable staff who currently work for the District and Borough councils within North Yorkshire to purchase the items they require from 1 April 2023.
The amendment does not constitute a variation to the contract as no volumes were indicated when the contract was let and there is scope to add and remove garments / items from the core list, as required.
