PPE Selection

General Consideration:

The personal protective equipment should not be used as a substitute for engineering, work practices, and/or administrative controls to protect employees from workplace hazards. PPE should be used in conjunction with permanent protective measures, such as engineered guards, substitution of less hazardous chemicals, and prudent work practices.

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.
