The personal protective equipment selected must fit the employee it is intended to protect. Make certain that employees have the correct size of protective equipment. Whenever possible, select adjustable personal protective equipment.
Employee input in the selection process is critical.
Personal protective equipment that fits properly and is comfortable will more likely be worn by employees.
Damaged or defective protective equipment must be taken out of service immediately to be repaired or replaced and employees must be provided with the proper equipment in the interim.
