Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

An Introduction to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Safety Training

Not all workplace hazards can be fully controlled or eliminated.

When hazards in the work environment cannot be ‘engineered out’, or when guards, shields and other safety devices have limited effectiveness, there will often be a need to wear personal protective equipment.

It is important to understand that Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is not a substitute for hazard control, but the last safety option to be implemented after all other practical safety measures have been considered and applied.

Personal protective equipment therefore is rarely used in isolation and is often incorporated into safety procedures as an added protection should an accident occur.

PPE in the workplace Safety Training

Long and short term illness, major and minor injuries, poisoning, electric shock and so on, can all be prevented at times with the use of appropriate personal protective equipment.

This program examines various types of Personal Protective Equipment in detail, including:

  • Eye and Face Protection
  • Head Protection
  • Respiratory Protection
  • Hearing Protection
  • Protective Clothing

In each section we examine why, when and how the protection is worn.

Who it’s for:

This program is designed for all personnel who are required to wear personal protective equipment. It is a general program suitable for induction or to reinforce the need to wear items of personal protection.
