Personal Protective Equipment

To keep yourself and others safe at work, working knowledge of Personal Protective Equipment (or PPE) is required. PPE can help keep everyone safe in the workplace. You cannot eliminate all physical hazards through engineering or administrative controls’ so PPE provides a last line of defense.

However, data shows that most workers who suffer eye, head, and foot injuries aren’t wearing protective equipment. With our Personal Protective Equipment training, employers and employees alike will learn about the proper selection, care, and use of PPE. You will also learn about the requirements for compliance with occupational health and safety standards. There are different types of protective equipment, and each type protects workers from various job-related hazards.

PPE can protect your head, hands, feet, and others protect the respiratory system, or offer fall protection. Our Personal Protective Equipment training will guide you through the different types and purposes of PPE. Our training teaches you how to use PPE to protect yourself against job-related hazards. Equipped with this knowledge, you will be better able to keep yourself, others, and your workplace safe.
