1 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

2 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Protecting Employees Employers must protect employees from workplace hazards Use engineering and work practice controls to eliminate and/or reduce hazards Use appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) if the controls do not eliminate the hazards. Remember, PPE is the final option.

3 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Engineering Controls If... The machine or work environment can be physically changed to prevent employee exposure to the potential hazard, Then... The hazard can be eliminated with an engineering control.

4 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Work Practice Controls If... Employees can be removed from exposure to the potential hazard by changing the way they do their jobs, Then... The hazard can be eliminated with a work practice control.

5 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Examples of PPE Eye - safety glasses, goggles Face - face shields Head - hard hats Feet - safety shoes Hands and Arms - gloves Bodies - vests Hearing - earplugs

6 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Establishing a PPE Program First - assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or are likely to be present, which necessitate the use of PPE Once the proper PPE has been selected, the employer must provide training to each employee who is required to use PPE

7 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Training When PPE is necessary What type of PPE is necessary How to properly put on, take off, adjust, and wear Limitations of the PPE Proper care, maintenance, useful life and disposal Employees required to use PPE must be trained to know at least the following:

9 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Some Causes Of Eye Injuries Dust and other flying particles Molten metal Acids and other caustic liquid chemicals Blood and other potentially infectious body fluids Intense light

10 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Safety Glasses Made with metal/plastic safety frames Most operations require side shields Used for moderate impact from particles produced by such jobs as carpentry, woodworking, grinding, and scaling

11 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Goggles Protect eyes, eye sockets, and the facial area immediately surrounding the eyes from impact, dust, and splashes Some goggles fit over corrective lenses

12 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Welding Shields Protect eyes from burns Protect face and eyes from: flying sparks metal spatter slag chips

13 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Face Shields Protect the face from nuisance dusts and potential splashes or sprays of hazardous liquids Do not protect employees from impact hazards

14 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Head Protection

15 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Some Causes Of Head Injuries Falling objects Bumping head against fixed objects, such as exposed pipes or beams Contact with exposed electrical conductors

16 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Classes of Hard Hats Class A (General Service) Good impact protection but limited voltage protection Class B (Electrical Work) Protect against falling objects and high-voltage shock and burns Class C (Comfort) Protects heads that may bump against fixed objects, but do not protect against falling objects or electrical shock ANSI Type I – Vertical impact protection ANSI Type II – Vertical and lateral impact resistance Class E – Protects for electrical voltages up to 20,000 v. Bump Cap – protects head but not impact resistant (for low ceilings)

24 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Norfoil laminate resists permeation and breakthrough by an array of toxic/hazardous chemicals Butyl provides the highest permeation resistance to gas or water vapors; frequently used for ketones (M.E.K., Acetone) and esters (Amyl Acetate, Ethyl Acetate) Types of Gloves

25 Click to edit Master text styles –Second level Third level –Fourth level »Fifth level Viton is highly resistant to permeation by chlorinated and aromatic solvents Nitrile provides protection against a wide variety of solvents, harsh chemicals, fats and petroleum products and also provides excellent resistance to cuts, snags, punctures and abrasions Types of Gloves
