In regards to PPE testing. This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written PPE hazard assessment included with the course.

Why Do I Need Training?

Under the General Duty Clause, Section 5(a)(1) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are required to provide a workplace that “is free from recognizable hazards that are causing or likely to cause death or serious harm to employees.” Likewise, Canada requires employers to provide a safe work environment for their employees.

Because of these requirements, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with PPE. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.

Did You Know?

PPE has different levels of defense to accommodate different needs.

Cleaning PPE affects the way PPE functions.

PPE saved the lives of two of the ten archeologists re-investigating King Tutankhamen’s tomb in the 1970s. The others died because, at the time, they weren’t required to wear it.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I use PPE?

PPE should be used to minimize exposure to workplace hazards that are not controlled by engineering or administrative protections.

What kind of PPE do I need?

Choose PPE that fits well and comfortably for the entire time you’ll be using it. Depending on the hazards at your workplace, your employer will provide administrative, engineering, and work practice protections. Any hazard still extant after those protections have been implemented require PPE, and your employer will provide it for you. They must also offer training and monitoring after they have implemented a PPE program.

What are the limitations of my PPE?

PPE might offer a false sense of security around hazards that are better addressed administratively or through engineering protections. PPE is ineffective when not worn or used properly, and the protections it offers are rarely fully achieved. Wearing PPE can restrict your movement or sensitivity. Ultimately, PPE should be a last resort.

How do I make sure I’m using my PPE right?

Your employer must ensure that you use it correctly and provide you with training that shows you how. The information included in that training must include when to use PPE, and the minimum requirements for the hazards you are facing on the job. You’ll learn how to don it, adjust it, wear or use it, doff it when you’re done, and dispose of any single-use elements. You’ll also learn how to maintain and care for the equipment.
