PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT:  PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT Introduction :  Introduction Hard hats, goggles, face shields, steel-toed shoes, respirators, aprons, gloves, and full body suits are all forms of personal protective equipment (PPE). PPE includes all clothing and other work accessories designed to create a barrier against workplace hazards. PPE should not be used as a substitute for engineering, work practice, and/or administrative controls. Introduction :  Introduction It is used in conjunction with these controls to provide for employee safety and health in the workplace. The key to a successful management program for PPE is an in-depth evaluation of the workplace hazards and the equipment needed to protect against the identified hazards. Introduction :  Introduction Management dedicated to the safety and health of employees should also use the evaluation to: Set a standard operating procedure for personnel Train employees on the protective limitations of PPE and on its proper use and maintenance. Introduction :  Introduction When using personal protective equipment, employees must be aware of the hazards and be trained to use the appropriate personal protective equipment. Employees must be aware that the equipment does not eliminate the hazard. If the equipment fails, exposure occurs. To reduce the possibility of failure, equipment must be properly fitted and maintained in a clean and serviceable condition. Introduction :  Introduction Selecting the right tool and right personal protective equipment for the job is critical. It is necessary that employers and employees understand the equipment's purpose and limitations. With such understanding, hopefully, employees will not alter or remove equipment because it is uncomfortable. Sometimes equipment may be made more comfortable simply by adjusting the fit.
