Body Protection

People require protection against operational, environmental, and mechanical (but not chemical) hazards. Personal protective vests, aprons, coats, pants, coveralls, and suits are available. The type of PPE for body protection and the selection of proper material should result from the workplace hazard control program. Accident investigations and analyses of injuries may also suggest the need for types of body PPE.

Purchasers of PPE should reference appropriate standards on purchase requests.

Once the PPE is in use it must be maintained in reliable condition. If employees are permitted to use their own PPE, the employer must nonetheless make certain that the PPE is adequate and properly maintained. PPE should be part of the overall inspection program and included in inspection checklists.
