Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Training for Employees & Businesses
Personal protective equipment training gives workers confidence knowing they are protected from physical harm while performing their duties.
Better everyday decisions
By wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), workers are aware of the potential hazards in their work environment and can take extra precautions, such as choosing a different tool or equipment, to safely perform a task or job.
Personal Protective Equipment covers these topics and more:
- Why PPE is important
- Types of head, ear and eye protection
- Respiratory PPE, Protective Clothing, and PPE for hands and feet
- The different hazards PPE is designed to protect workers from
- PPE training requirements
What Is Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)?
Personal protective equipment (PPE) keeps workers safe who may be exposed to physical, chemical, biological or radiological hazards in their job. By providing PPE training, workers can better understand the importance of using PPE properly and the potential hazards they face if they don’t use it.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide PPE training to employees who must use PPE and come into contact with physical, chemical, biological or radiological hazards.
Training workers on the proper use of PPE can help improve the safety and well-being of workers, avoid costly worker compensation claims and help businesses comply with regulatory requirements.
