PPE is much more than helmets, goggles and gloves. In this final module on workplace PPE, we’ll examine how to choose the right protective clothing, how to keep it clean, and how your body tells you that additional PPE may be necessary.
All PPE should be safely designed and constructed and kept in a clean and reliable fashion. In this second part we’ll focus on ways PPE can keep you safe from damaging noise, airborne hazards and potential injury to your hands and arms.
When engineering or workplace safety controls fail or are not feasible, Personal Protective Equipment, (or “PPE”) can be the last line of defense against an injury. This module covers the basics of construction PPE, including selecting the right head and eye protection.
