Personal Protective Equipment is specifically designed to help employers meet OSHA requirements. It provides employees with the information that they need to avoid injury on the job by using the appropriate PPE. On-the-job injuries affect all types of people doing all types of work. And virtually everyone will experience at least one of them at some point in their life. These accidents cost employers more than $100 billion every year. Since most workplace injuries result from the workers not wearing proper personal protective equipment (PPE), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to provide and maintain appropriate PPE for their people, and train them on how to use it.
