What Is Personal Protective Equipment?
PPE means personal protective equipment or equipment you use to guarantee your (own) safety.
Use PPE whenever and wherever necessary. Follow the instructions for use, keep them safe, and check regularly whether they still offer sufficient protection.
Wearing a helmet offers protection and can prevent head injuries
A good pair of safety glasses could prevent injuries. Do you come into contact with bright light or infrared radiation? Then welding goggles or a shield offer the ideal protection!
It is vital to protect your hands properly. Depending on the sector you work in, you can choose from gloves for different applications.
Even your feet need solid protection. Safety shoes and boots are the ideal solutions to protect the feet against heavyweights.
Here are some critical benefits that you should consider before purchasing your next batch of personal protective equipment.
- If you prevent harmful bacteria from coming into contact, your employees will not get sick or become victims of illness because they are not adequately protected from the often dirty work they have to do (e.g. cleaning garbage cans requires Gear).
- If exposure to harmful bacteria or germs had occurred, the device would have minimized the risk and saved your employee's life.
- personal protective equipment also prevents the transmission of germs and bacteria from person to person. Dentists, for example, need to make sure they wear protective clothing so they can keep bacteria off their instruments. Cleaning teams need to reduce cross-contamination or the spread of disease to other areas of the facility.
- PPE, or Personal Protective Equipment, helps prevent staff emergencies on the job due to inhalation, absorption, irritants, or another prolonged contact with a cleaning chemical. This actively reduces accidents, improves the health of your employees, and makes for a safer, secure work environment.
