Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will discuss in detail the requirements of personal protective equipment (PPE) and its use. Attendees will learn best practices to ensure compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.132 standard.

Why Should You Attend:

Fatalities and injuries among the nation’s workers are substantially reduced with the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and technologies. It is estimated that 20 million workers use PPE on a regular basis to protect them from job hazards.

Based on a report prepared by Eastern Research Group under contract to the Department of Labor, OSHA has determined that the hazards addressed by the personal protective equipment standard are present in varying degrees in virtually all workplaces covered by the OSHA General Industry standards (29 CFR 1910). The extent of the rule's impact will vary by industry depending on the hazards, the types of occupational activity and current practices regarding PPE use.

This webinar will focus on the requirements of personal protective equipment (PPE). It will discuss hazard assessment, equipment selection, providing training to employees in the proper use of PPE and much more.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Requirements for PPE
  • The Hazard Assessment
  • Selecting PPE
  • Training Employees in the Proper Use of PPE:
    • Eye and Face Protection - Prescription Lenses, Eye Protection for Exposed Workers, Types of Eye Protection, Welding Operations and Laser Operations
    • Head Protection - Types of Hard Hats, Size and Care Considerations
    • Foot and Leg Protection - Special Purpose Shoes, Foundry Shoes, Care of Protective Footwear
    • Hand and Arm Protection - Types of Protective Gloves, Leather, Canvas or Metal Mesh Gloves, Fabric and Coated Fabric Gloves, Chemical- and Liquid-Resistant Gloves, Care of Protective Gloves
    • Body Protection and Hearing Protection

Instructor Profile:

Randall B. Charpentier, is a 20 year experienced, safety and risk management consultant. Mr. Charpentier is proficient and considered an expert by his peers and colleagues when assigning, overseeing, administering, and training on OSHA’s Personal Protective Equipment standard. His project experience ranges from leading teams on the construction of the west coast space shuttle project, working internationally and domestically for leading environmental engineering firms conducting real estate assessments involving occupational and environmental risks, assessing business operational risks concerning commercial insurance policies, and reducing/eliminating exposures/hazards, to leading world renowned, top ten/one hundred community based & BioMedical Research/Teaching hospitals, with development and management of environmental health/safety management programs.

Topic Background:

Hazards exist in every workplace in many different forms: sharp edges, falling objects, flying sparks, chemicals, noise and a myriad of other potentially dangerous situations. The OSHA requires that employers protect their employees from workplace hazards that can cause injury.

Controlling a hazard at its source is the best way to protect employees. Depending on the hazard or workplace conditions, OSHA recommends the use of engineering or work practice controls to manage or eliminate hazards to the greatest extent possible. For example, building a barrier between the hazard and the employees is an engineering control; changing the way in which employees perform their work is a work practice control.

When engineering, work practice and administrative controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, employers must provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to their employees and ensure its use. Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to a variety of hazards. Examples of PPE include such items as gloves, foot and eye protection, protective hearing devices (earplugs, muffs) hard hats, respirators and full body suits.

PPE protects workers from death and disabling injuries and illnesses as well as protecting from the specific threats of exposures to certain airborne biological particles, chemical agents, splashes, noise exposures, fall hazards, head hazards, and fires. Improvements and changes in the personal protective technologies are realized in the form of standards and regulations, revisions and alterations to existing standards, subsequent availability of PPE complying with the standards and regulations, and demonstrations of PPE use by the workers.

Many types of PPE have been in widespread use in industry for many years. However, until recently very little statistical data existed to determine the number of employees who either are using PPE or who should be wearing PPE by virtue of the hazards to which they are exposed.

OSHA's inspection data document that approximately 3.5 percent of all planned safety inspections result in citations under the existing PPE standards. The inspection data identifies the standard industrial classification (SIC) of the establishment, size of plant workforce, union status, and information related to the inspection itself; less frequently reported are data on degree of hazard present in workplaces, the number of workers exposed to the hazard, or the type of PPE required.

In its Preliminary Regulatory Impact Analysis, OSHA examined injury statistics for affected industry sectors. Among the accident databases searched by OSHA were Work Injury Reports (WIR) published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). These reports examine cases where a worker was injured and provide evidence that many workers are not wearing adequate personal protective equipment. Based on the BLS data, relatively few firms with serious recordable injury cases have performed a formal assessment of the potential hazards in their workplace. In addition, little training was offered to workers regarding the importance of using protective equipment in these firms.
