Personal Protective Equipment PPE

Welcome to our Personal Protective Equipment PPE collection.

Personal Protective Equipment PPE

Here at the Health7 PPE collection, you can find polymer powder-free gloves, medical masks, isolation gowns, and many more products.

Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as PPE, is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. 

What can you do to ensure the proper use of personal protective equipment?

All PPE should be safely designed and constructed and should be maintained cleanly and reliably. Our products fit comfortably, encouraging worker use. If the personal protective equipment does not fit properly, it can make the difference between being safely covered or dangerously exposed, so be careful when you are choosing the size. 

When engineering, work practice, and administrative controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, employers must provide personal protective equipment to their workers and ensure its proper use. 

Employers are also required to train each worker required to use personal protective equipment to know:

 - When it is necessary

 - What kind is necessary

 - How to properly put it on, adjust, wear and take it off

 - The limitations of the equipment

 - Proper care, maintenance, useful life, and disposal of the equipment

If PPE is to be used, a PPE program should be implemented. This program should address the hazards present; the selection, maintenance, and use of PPE; the training of employees; and monitoring of the program to ensure its ongoing effectiveness.
