The class Personal Protective Equipment 111 introduces the purpose and uses of personal protective equipment (PPE). As defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), PPE minimizes exposure to hazards and helps prevent injury. PPE is available in several types, designs, and materials to suit a range of workplace conditions and hazards. PPE may be categorized by the area of the body it protects. Every employer is responsible for providing the appropriate PPE for employees who require it, and it is every employee’s responsibility to properly wear and use PPE correctly. In order to select appropriate PPE, employers must first evaluate the workplace with a hazard assessment.

After taking this class, users should be able to identify several common types of PPE, as well as the hazards and conditions associated with each type. Proper knowledge and use of PPE can greatly improve workplace safety.
