Personal Protective Equipment

 
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is designed to protect employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury or illness. Personal Protective Equipment consists of items such as gloves, face shields, respirators, safety glasses, hard hats and earplugs.
 
OSHA requires employers to assess their workplace for potential hazards. This hazard assessment program must be documented and should identify the workplace(s) evaluated, the person certifying that the assessment was performed and dates of the hazard assessment. The employer is then required to provide and maintain PPE for the employees to protect against hazards or potential hazards that have been found. Employers are, with few exceptions, required to pay for all personal protective equipment necessary to ensure the safety of their employees. PPE should only be used as a last resort after engineering and administrative controls have been applied.
 
OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.132 (f) requires the employer to provide training for each employee who performs tasks where PPE is necessary. Employees must be trained to know:
• When and what PPE is necessary,
• How to put on, adjust, wear and take off PPE,
• The limitations of the PPE, and
• Proper care, maintenance, useful life and disposal of the PPE.
 
Employees must inspect PPE before each use. Regular cleaning, maintenance, repairs (unless disposable) and replacement of PPE must follow manufacturer’s directions. Maintenance records should be kept for each article of PPE. PPE should be stored in appropriate storage devices, such as specially marked cabinets or closets, when not in use.
 
Employees need to be properly trained in Personal Protective Equipment.
