Why is PPE important in the workplace?

Personal Protective Equipment or more commonly PPE or Protective clothing is equipment designed to protect you and your employees body from injury or infection.

When is personal protective equipment used?

When buying PPE, people often think that this is the main thing that is going to protect them. If you are thinking this is the case, then you are approaching it all wrong.

You all know the saying ‘prevention is better than cure’ and this is extremely relevant when it comes to personal safety.

You are supposed to use personal protective equipment to supplement higher-level control measures in the order outlined by the 5 hierarchy of controls.

The hierarchy of controls is a widely accepted five step system for controlling occupational risks in the workplace. They are listed in order of importance:

  1. Elimination: Remove the hazard
  2. Substitution: Replace the hazard with a less hazardous solution
  3. Engineering controls: Isolate people from the hazard
  4. Administrative controls: Change the processes to reduce the risk
  5. Personal protective equipment: Provide safety clothing to protect them in the event of a hazard.
