Our personal protective equipment (PPE) training course will guide you through one of the most essential aspects of occupational safety: the proper use of PPE to reduce the risk of injury from common workplace hazards. This e-course offers a practical introduction to all aspects of PPE, from Upper and Lower Body Protection, to respirators and head protection.
Personal protective equipment is essential for workers in many different industries, helping to protect them from hazardous materials, mechanical injury, harmful environments, or dangerous situations. There are many different types of PPE, and the type that is most appropriate for a given situation will depend on the specific risks involved. The most common types of PPE include respiratory protection (masks and filters), hand protection (gloves), eye protection (safety glasses), head protection (hard hats), hearing protection (ear plugs) and high-visibility protective clothing.
