Any workplace, even your own, can be a source of danger. Even if you try your hardest to minimize or avoid danger, there can still be a number of things that can cause you injuries; injuries ranging from a cut hand, crushed foot, concussed head, and everything in between. That is why you need personal protective equipment, or PPE. Your PPE, which is specifically chosen for your job and your situation, acts as a final defense against the dangers at your workplace. You may not always be able to avoid these hazards, so you should know the right PPE to use to help prevent any serious injury.

There are many specific kinds of PPE tailored to specific body parts and specific jobs. For example, unique risks are posed if you drill or sand when compared to if you weld; the former may cause debris to come back and strike you, while the latter would expose you to extreme heat. This is but one example of why you would need PPE tailored to what your job entails. You may need certain eye, head, foot, hand, or skin protection, all of which you will learn about in this course.

When it comes to PPE, both employees and employers have responsibilities. The employers must furnish the correct equipment and tell you of the hazards of your job, and the employees actually have to use the PPE provided. If either of these do not happen, the risk of potentially serious injuries drastically increases. The injuries may even be permanent. This is why the right PPE used in the proper way is so important. Utilize the information presented in the training video and understand the unique hazards your job may possess, as well as the correct PPE to use. Your workplace will be that much safer because of it.
