Personal Protective Equipment Safety
Hazards exist in every workplace in many different forms: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. The
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that employers protect their employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury.
Using the proper personal protective equipment (PPE), will help to ensure that employees remain safe when working around the many hazards a workplace can have. It is critical that workers have a working knowledge of the various types of personal protective equipment and how to use each type properly. To reduce the possibility of failure, PPE must also be maintained and stored properly.
This interactive Personal Protective Equipment Safety Course will train on all of these aspects of using PPE safely in the workplace, per OSHAs 29 CFR 1910.132 Subpart I standard.
