Personal Protective Equipment

General information on course

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is used to reduce or minimize the exposure or contact to physical, chemical or biological hazards. A hazard cannot be eliminated by PPE, but the risk of injury can be eliminated or greatly reduced. Throughout this session, participants will be provided with the information on how to assess, select and determine the correct PPE for the work they are performing. Participants must complete and pass this course to receive their record of training (ROT).


Can be a half day depending on the size of the group and participant interaction.
