Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Let’s talk about Personal Protective Equipment, or

PPE.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015 2

According to OSHA, millions of workers suffer a serious job-

related injury or illness each year, with many injuries occurring

because PPE did not provide full protection or the wrong PPEwas worn.

. . .

Meet Guy.

3

Guy is about to have a pretty rough week

at work. Hopefully, Guy will be able to

learn from his mistakes and understand that

using the right PPE in the right way, at the

right time, could save his life.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Today, Guy has been asked to do some

hot work.

4PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Before long, some sparks are flying and

they land right in Guy’s eye. Ouch!

5

Guy could have benefitted from using eye

and face protection.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Eye and Face Protection

Safety Glasses

• Should be ANSI approved, marked with Z-87, and have approved side shields

Goggles

• Can be worn over glasses if necessary

Face Shields

• Do not provide enough protection on their own

• Wear them with safety glasses or goggles

Shields workers from hazards such as:

Flying fragments, particles, and sparks

Molten metals

Lasers

UV light, glare, and radiation

Liquid chemicals, vapors, and hazardous gases

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Now that Guy has learned a few things,

he’s good to go!

9

What do we do before putting on any

PPE, Guy?

Let’s see what happens in Day 2.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Today, Guy is working beneath a

scaffold.

10PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Guy’s coworker loses his grip on

a tool and *BANG,* it falls on

poor Guy’s head.

11

That’ll be a doozy!

Let’s see what kind of

head protectionGuy could have

used.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Head Protection

12

A hard hat should always be worn.

Hard hats should effectively:

Resist penetration by objects

Absorb the shock of a blow

Be water-resistantBe ANSI Z-89-approved

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Head Protection

13

Two types of ANSI hard hat classifications include:

Class E, which is electrically protective to 20,000 volts

and is required by most operators.

Class G, which is electrically protective to 2,200 volts

and is for general industry use.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Head Protection

14

Inspect hard hats for nicks, scratches, or

holes on the shell.

Make sure your hard hat’s

suspension is not damaged or

deteriorated.

Check that your hard hat is not brittle or

soft due to UV damage.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Hopefully Day 3 goes better for

Guy.

15

Today, Guy has been asked to do

some cutting work.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

It should be nice and quick, until… *SNIP*

16

Guy cuts his hand pretty badly.

Guy can’t catch a break! His cut-resistant gloves were in his

pocket.

Let’s see what Guy needs to know

about hand and arm protection.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

On Day 4, Guy’s coworker is

trying to move something heavy without getting help when…

20PPT-SM-PPE 2015

*SLIP* he loses

his grip and the heavy items fall right

on Guy’s foot.

21

Bad luck!

Let’s see what foot and leg

protection Guy could have

used.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Foot and Leg Protection

22

Safety footwear, like steel-toe boots, must meet standards set

by

ANSI

American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Foot and Leg Protection

23

Examples include:

• Leggings

• Metatarsal guards

• Toe guards

• Combination foot and shin guards

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

On Day 5,

Guy’s coworker

is working on something electrical when…

24

*POP* Guy gets a good

idea!

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Guy grabs some

flame-retardant

clothing, or FRC,

to protect himself and his coworker.

25

*DING* Solution! Let’s see why.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Body Protection

26

FRCs are less likely to catch fire, so

they’re useful in protecting workers from

flash fires, electrical arcs, and

flames. They are self-extinguishing

and must be approved for use

in the work environment.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

Body Protection

Other garments used to protect the arms, legs, and trunk of

the body from hazards include:

Fully-encapsulating suits

Sleeve protectors

Proximity suits

Cooling garments

PPT-SM-PPE 2015 27

Let’s see how Guy used what we

learned to be safe on the job this week.

28

On Day 1, Guy wears a welding mask during hot work in order to

protect his face and eyes.

PPT-SM-PPE 2015

On Day 2, Guy wears

an ANSI-approved

hard hat, which

absorbs the shock of a blow to his head when his coworker accidentally drops a tool.

29PPT-SM-PPE 2015

On Day 3, Guy wears cut-resistant

gloves during cutting work in order to

protect his hands and fingers.

30PPT-SM-PPE 2015

On Day 4, Guy wears

safety footwear in order

to protect his feet

from potential crushing and other hazards.

31PPT-SM-PPE 2015

On Day 5, a safe Guy goes

home to his family.
