What is Personal Protective Equipment?

Personal Protective Equipment is a term used in various industries to describe gear (coveralls, hard hats, protective shoe covers, etc.) that protects a user or worker from potential harmful physical hazards. OSHA states that any worker who could potentially be at risk, should have access to PPE items.

Different types of PPE include:

  • Noise (ear plugs or ear muffs)
  • Eye and Face (Protective glasses, goggles, hard hats and helmets)
  • Skin Protection (coveralls, uniforms or high visibility clothing, hard hats and helmets)
  • Respiratory protection (dust masks and spray socks)

There are four different levels of PPE, based on the risks and amount of protection needed on a job. Be sure to explore these levels to ensure the correct kind of gear is available to you and your co-workers.

Importance of Personal Protective Equipment

Work safety is a high priority (if not the highest) on all job sites. By providing and enforcing high quality protective wear on site, it protects a worker’s health and reduces their exposure to harmful risks.

Slip Resistant Safety on the Job

Slipping and falling is a common physical hazard on a jobsite. Liquids and other slippery substances are common on a wide range of job sites from large industrial projects to simple home improvement jobs.

Protective shoe guards not only help reduce tracking on the job, but are also a common PPE product.

What if there was a shoe guard, that didn’t skimp on protection, but provided slip-resistance, as well? Our Smart Grip Shoe Guards do just that!
