Personal protective equipment, or PPE, has been around throughout history in various forms. Even everyday clothing is a form of PPE, but many jobs and workplaces have unique hazards that require additional protection, such as gloves, boots, eye protection and many others. This course will teach employees to identify the need for PPE, define the concept of a hazard assessment, things to consider when choosing PPE, and the different types of PPE used to protect all parts of the body. This course is intended for general-industry employees who, during their regular work duties, are required to use personal protective equipment. This course is presented in English and Spanish.
