This OSHA PPE Compliance Audit Checklist can be used by safety officials and supervisors to help assess if workers comply with safety rules when using PPE. This checklist includes 17 general inspection matters to determine the requirement for PPE in protecting the workers, as well as performing equipment inspections to guarantee workers are using the correct equipment to prevent risk.
If the necessity for PPE is identified, are employers providing employees with correctly-fitted equipment?
Are protective goggles or face shields given and used where there is a hazard of flying particles or corrosive elements?
Are your workplaces frequently checked for the requirement for PPE?
Are protecting gloves, aprons, shields, or other means given and needed where employees could be hurt or where there is possible exposure to acid liquids, chemicals, blood or other possibly infectious materials?
Have the workers in the critical areas been trained on OSHA PPE standards? (Using what things, in what situations, as well as when and how to use it and correctly adjust it)
Are workers who wear remedial lenses (glasses or contacts) on worksites with dangerous exposures needed to wear only certified safety glasses, protective goggles, or use other medically accepted precautionary procedures?
Is ear protection implemented in areas where sound levels pass those of the OSHA noise standard?
Are certified safety glasses needed to be used at all times in workplaces that pose a hazard of eye punctures, abrasions, contusions, or burns?
Is proper foot protection needed where there is the hazard of foot injuries from hot, corrosive, toxic substances, falling objects, crushing or penetrating damages?
Are certified respirators given for regular or emergency use where required?
Is all PPE sustained in a sanitary state and ready for use?
Is required special equipment in place for electrical operators?
Are hard hats examined regularly for damage to the shell and suspension system?
Are food and beverages consumed in places with no dangerous exposure to poisonous materials, blood or other infectious substances?
Are there proper safe work procedures in place for disposing of or decontaminating PPE after dangerous exposure?
Are eyewash facilities and quick drench showers in place within the worksites where workers are exposed to hazardous corrosive materials?
Are safe work methods and PPE implemented and used when wiping up spilt toxic or dangerous materials and liquids?
