Description

Hazards exist in every workplace so strategies to protect workers are essential. When possible, the priority should be the elimination and control of hazards at their source or along the path between the source and the worker.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) should be considered as the last level of protection when all other methods are not available or possible. PPE is only one element in a complete safety program that would use a variety of strategies to maintain a safe and healthy workplace, and does not reduce the hazard itself nor does it guarantee permanent or total protection.

Display this poster to promote awareness of PPE and when it should be considered and used to perform workplace tasks.
