PPE refers to clothing, helmets, gloves, face shields, goggles, or other gear designed to protect the wearer's body from injury or infection.

It should be used in the workplace as follows:

  • Assess the work environment and identify hazards that require PPE
  • Select the appropriate PPE for the task and ensure it fits properly
  • Use and maintain PPE properly, following manufacturer's instructions
  • Replace PPE when it becomes damaged, worn or obsolete
  • Train employees on when and how to use PPE
  • Regularly inspect and assess PPE for effectiveness and necessary repairs/replacements.

    There are several benefits in using PPE such as:

  • Protecting workers from workplace hazards and potential injury
  • Reducing the risk of exposure to hazardous substances, such as chemicals and infectious diseases
  • Complying with occupational safety and health regulations
  • Improving workplace safety and reducing the number of lost-time injuries and illnesses
  • Protecting businesses from liability and costly worker compensation claims.
