It is essential that employees follow the correct health and safety procedures and wear the appropriate personal protective equipment when carrying out specific tasks to reduce the risk of injury at work. As an employer, it is your duty to provide them with the correct products and training to enable them to remain safe at work.
What are the types of PPE?
PPE is meant to keep the worker safe from any hazards that possess a risk to the health or safety of that individual. PPE is broken down into groups.
Respiratory - any device that will supply clean uncontaminated air to the work, or any device that protects the worker from breathing in contaminated air. These devices can be a simple as a disposable respirator that blocks out particles to a self-contained breathing apparatus that supplies clean air directing to the wearer.
Head and Eye Protection - protection against any type of risk to the head or eyes. A simple hard hat can protect a worker from falling debris overhead to a side blow to the head. Safety glasses and goggles can protect the workers eye from impact, dust, gas vapors, or extreme lighting conditions
Skin - protective clothing can protect a worker from dust and dirt to chemical splashes. The product can be a simple as an apron or as significant as a fully encapsulated chemical suit. The protection is dependent on the situation and what risk you are trying to protect the individual from.
Hand Protection - gloves come in many different varieties for the many different jobs we do with our hands. From protection a worker from cuts and punctures to chemical exposure, there is a glove to meet any potential risk.
Noise - hearing is another area where workers need protection. If a worker is exposed to loud noises on a daily basis, the risk of hearing loss is great. Don't look past the work who is only exposed to a loud noise once or twice a day. Anything 85 decibels or above will need to be evaluated for protection such as ear plugs or ear muffs.
