Why do we need personal protective equipment?
When working at the front line dealing with toxic dust or liquid hazards, workers require appropriate personal protective equipment to protect themselves. Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to protective clothing, helmets, goggles, or other garments or equipment designed to protect the wearer's body from injuries or infection. The hazards addressed by protective equipment include physical, electrical, heat, chemicals, biohazards, and airborne particulate matter. Protective equipment may be worn for job-related occupational safety and health purposes, as well as for sports and other recreational activities. "Protective clothing" is applied to traditional categories of clothing, and "protective gear" applies to items such as pads, guards, shields, or masks, and others. The purpose of personal protective equipment is to reduce employee’s exposure to hazards when engineering controls and administrative controls are not feasible or effective to reduce these risks to acceptable levels. PPE is needed when there are hazards present. PPE has serious limitation that it does not keep you safe from the hazard at the source and may result in employees being exposed to the hazard if the equipment fails.
Application of PPE - protective clothing
Protective clothing can be used in the industrial field, medical care, and also daily needs. In order to ensure workers’ safety, it is very important to choose correct protective clothing based on environmental hazards. In Derekduck, we categorize protective clothing into four different categories by its function, which are particulate protection, flame retardant, liquid protection and chemical protection.
