PPE - Personal Protective Equipment
Many people want to understand what PPE is? PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment. It is a set of essential safety products that workers of a specific trade need in order to carry out their work activities without the fear of hazards involved. Workers and employers must ensure that risks involved in performing a job are well assessed and adequate PPE is provided to cover for those risks. When assessing risks, it is important to note that:
1) PPE is the last line of protection for individual workers and must not be treated as the only protection guard. All other approaches must be implemented to make the site safe to work and then on top of it provide workers with protective equipment needed as an extra essential to ensure their safety.
2) When considering to buy PPE, it is important to make sure that the safety products comply to the laws and safety regulations in place.
Personal Protective Equipment includes but not limited to products such as hard hats, safety glasses, ear defenders, safety gloves, safety boots, high visibility workwear, safety harnesses, specialized overalls and respiratory masks etc. The type of PPE to be used depends on the work requirements and the type of work being carried out. For example, construction workers can have a different set of protective equipment than workers of glass manufacturing industry.
