Personal Protective Equipment [PPE]

Course Description

It is the employers’ responsibility to assess the workplace hazards, and if they are present or are likely to be present, and work practice controls alone are not sufficient, then the employer must provide personal protective equipment to the exposed employees.

This course gives you a basic understanding about OSHA’s role in prevention and elimination of work-related casualties and fatalities, which can be protected through proper personal protective equipment (PPE).
