PPE

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is a cornerstone of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS), encompassing equipment and clothing designed to protect workers from potential hazards in the workplace. OHS guidelines prioritize the use of PPE as a last line of defense, emphasizing hierarchy of controls where eliminating or minimizing hazards is preferred over relying solely on PPE. Nevertheless, when hazards cannot be completely eliminated, appropriate PPE such as helmets, gloves, goggles, masks, and protective clothing becomes crucial. OHS protocols emphasize the proper selection, fitting, maintenance, and use of PPE, along with employee training on its correct application, to ensure optimal protection against workplace hazards and minimize the risks of injury or illness.
