PPE Handout for Workers

If you’re unable to eliminate or minimize a safety hazard in your workplace through engineering controls or the use of safe work practices, you’ll need to ensure that workers have and use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves from that hazard. So it’s important that workers understand their responsibilities as to PPE.


Adapt this handout for your OHS program, collective agreement and the requirements in your jurisdiction’s OHS laws on PPE, especially as to who is required to pay for and/or provide PPE. Give all workers this handout, based on one created by WorkSafeBC, as a supplement to a safety or toolbox talk on PPE.
