The Public Entity Risk Management Authority (PERMA) is sponsoring a virtual Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) training course. Many work-related injuries can be prevented if workers are provided with the proper PPE. Cal/OSHA also requires that every employer have a written PPE program (Title 8, Section 3380). Please attend this training to learn what steps you can taken to reduce injuries and illnesses to your employees through the proper selection and use of PPE.
During this training we will review regulatory requirements for PPE program, including how to conduct a PPE hazard assessment. We will review the different types of PPE including: eye and face protection, head protection, hand protection, foot protection, hearing protection, respiratory protection, fall protection, and body protection including chemical protective clothing. In addition, we will discuss the limitations of PPE, care and maintenance of PPE, and storage of PPE.
