Personal Protective Equipment for Employees (PPE)

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is a worker’s last line of defense against worksite hazards. As such, it is vital that all employees know how to properly select, use, and maintain all pieces of PPE required on their jobsite. This course teaches learners the basics of various forms of PPE, including hardhats, eye and face protection, hearing protection, and hand and foot protection.

This course also covers the “hierarchy of hazard controls” as well as the rights and responsibilities of workers and employers when it comes to PPE. The course also gives a brief overview of some other common, but more specialized, forms of PPE, such as fall protection, body and limb protection, and high-visibility safety apparel. Please note that respiratory protection is NOT covered in this course; rather, respiratory protection is covered in much more depth in it’s own, dedicated course.

Full-size and wallet-size completion certificates are provided after the successful completion of this course.
