Why do I need PPE training?
OSHA doesn’t have a specific standard for PPE training. However, 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.
