PROGRAMThe Value of the Providing the Correct Personal Protective Equipment in your Workplace
The importance of having the correct personal protective equipment in your work place is essential. PPE is the last line of defense in injury prevention. Many times a risk cannot be eliminated, engineer to reduce and management controls are not feasible. PPE will aid in avoiding injuries and the associated costs of those injuries. There is value in the correct assessment of PPE that not only meets the requirements of the operation, but meets OSHA and best practices requirements. Providing the correct PPE is only the start, as there is a need for employee engagement and training. There have been many case studies and industry resources that can help with the correct PPE evaluation to keep your employees safe.
