Personal Protective Equipment

​​Engineering controls and administrative practices are the first line of defense to reduce exposure risks. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provides an extra layer when those efforts alone are insufficient. Personal Protective Equipment Compliance contains additional information.

Every lab must provide adequate PPE for each employee. Specific PPE requirements depend upon the particular hazard potential of a given task or job position. Safety Data Sheets provide some guidance for making this decision.
