Personal Protective Equipment are those items that protect the worker from hazards. Hazards exist in the form of motion, temperature extremes, chemical exposure, inhalation, light, electrical, falling objects, penetration, pinching or rolling and from other workers performing their job. When these hazards are present in the workplace the employer is responsible for providing PPE to protect from them. The worker is responsible for notifying the employer that such hazards or condition exists and should use the proper reporting procedures. Proper employee work training must address all potential hazards associated with such work. Hazard reporting is conducted to develop a safer workplace and requires the worker and the employers full support.
