The Easy Guide to Personal Protective Equipment
There are many types of personal protective equipment (PPE) that can be used to protect workers from the various hazards in their working environment. However, for the PPE to be effective, it is essential that the correct type is selected, is well-fitting, and is properly cleaned and maintained.
It is also important to note that since PPE does not, and cannot control the hazard at the source, before relying on PPE, you need to conduct a risk assessment to see what other controls can and should be used.
After completing this training program, your workers will be able to:
- Identify the various types of PPE
- Recognise that PPE has to be suitable for the particular hazard present and or the nature of the work being performed.
- Appreciate the importance of good fit and comfort
The Easy Guide to Personal Protective Equipment is available as a 4 minute video only or in an online, self-paced e-Learning module (SCORM compliant).
