General industry workplaces are full of hazards that employees are exposed to everyday. Some hazards, like falling or flying objects, are easy to identify while others, such as odorless gasses that could harm your respiratory system or repetitive exposure to loud noises that can gradually damage your hearing over time, are not.

To help protect employees from hazards, OSHA requires employers to assess their workplace and then provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to their employees and train them on how to wear, maintain, and properly store their PPE.

This course introduces learners to the different personal protective equipment (PPE) used in the workplace, including: head, eye, face, hearing, hand, foot, and respiratory protection devices. This course helps learners to select, care for, and properly wear PPE for their on-the-job safety.

After completing this Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Training program, learners will be able to:
