Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to clothing and equipment that can protect people from injury and ill health when risks cannot be controlled enough in other ways.. Examples of PPE include safety helmets, gloves, eye protection, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear, safety harnesses and respiratory protective equipment (RPE).
Employees must wear PPE in the workplace where required by the organisation’s procedures and risk assessments. This EssentialSkillz PPE course does not cover all forms of PPE for all hazards, but it does outline some general principles to follow. In addition to this course, employees will need practical, hands-on training, including demonstrations of how to don (put on) and doff (take off) PPE.
This Personal Protective Equipment Online Training course takes on average 50 minutes to complete.
