Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the method of last resort, and should always be used in combination with other control methods. Personal protective equipment is often the easiest control to implement but is usually the least effective. In some cases, employers will supply workers with the required PPE, and in others, they may require workers to provide it themselves. In all cases, formal training in the care, use, and maintenance of all PPE should be provided by the employer. Examples of Personal Protective Equipment include: Safety glasses and face shields to protect the eyes from flying debris Hard hats to protect the head from falling objects Respiratory protective equipment to protect the lungs from harmful dust and chemical vapours Earplugs/ ear muffs for noise over *% decibels Coveralls for limb protection Gloves to protect your hands Steel-toed safety footwear. Full body harness for working at heights. There is plenty of varieties of PPE and not one thing will protect you in all cases so make sure you assess the hazard and are wearing the appropriate PPE for the job!
