Personal Protective Equipment or more commonly referred to as PPE protects users against hazards in the workplace. When a hazard cannot be 100% removed, measures must be put in place to reduce the chance of injury. Employers have a duty of care to provide workers with PPE in good condition, working and appropriate to the task. However, employees have a duty to wear the PPE, use it correctly, and report any damage or if the item is faulty.
PPE helps lower the risk of injury – Eye protection, safety helmets, gloves, high-visibility clothing, appropriate work clothing and appropriate footwear are all types of PPE. Hazards exist in every workplace, and it is a priority to eliminate and control the hazard before it reaches the worker. Most hazards can be controlled or reduced, significantly limiting the risk to a person’s health. In situations where risk is still present, the use of PPE is required. Although PPE cannot eliminate a hazard, it can further reduce the risk of injury.
The course will communicate the essential information needed for workers to understand the importance of PPE within the workplace. The following are some of the areas covered in the online course.
- What is PPE?
- Assessing suitable PPE.
- The hazards and types of PPE.
