Personal Protective Equipment

There’s no avoiding it. Workplaces can be dangerous and they’re often filled with potential hazards that you’re exposed to on a daily basis. Some hazards, like falling or flying objects, are easy to identify, while others, such as odorless air contaminants that could harm your respiratory system, are not. To ensure your protection, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires your employer to assess your workplace and eliminate or reduce the hazards and dangers that you face when performing your job. For any hazards that remain, your employer will provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to you and then train you how to properly fit, wear, and care for it so it keeps you safe.
