Personal Protective Equipment

A critical aspect of working safely with hazardous materials is the proper selection and use of personal protective equipment (PPE). All PPE should be carefully selected to ensure that it is appropriate for the hazards present and that the users will be able to perform their work in reasonable comfort wearing the protective equipment.

More information on PPE can be found on our Personal Protective Equipment page in the Occupational and Office Safety section.  Please contact Environmental Health & Safety at 8-8182 in the event of ANY questions regarding the proper selection of PPE for a given task.
