The ABCs of PPE: Assessing Workplace Hazards and Selecting the Right Personal Protective Equipment for Your Facility

Live Webinar: Thursday, June 6, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to select the right PPE for your facility based on the jobs your employees perform.



Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as PPE, is a critical aspect of any organization’s safety program because it is the last line of defense in protecting workers from a variety of hazards that can cause injury or illness. Failing to provide the correct PPE or forgetting to make sure employees are wearing it can lead to avoidable accidents, not to mention costly enforcement actions.

Despite the importance of PPE, many safety managers still struggle with conducting hazard assessments, recognizing when agencies require certain types of PPE, selecting the appropriate PPE for the job, and identifying who is responsible for providing PPE in the first place.

Join us on June 6 for an all-new webinar where Adele Abrams will help you resolve these pain points and answer other commonly asked questions about PPE, such as:

  • Can I charge employees to replace lost or misused PPE?
  •  When do I have to provide heat resistant gloves for workers?
  •  What are the rules for requiring safety shoes that are slip-resistant and have safety toes?
  • How to I manage respiratory protection requirements, particularly for employees who don’t want to shave?
  • How do I address PPE for employees with prescription glasses or hearing aids?
  • What happens if an employee fails a medical evaluation for respirator use?

After attending this webinar, you will be able to: 

  • Conduct a comprehensive and effective hazard assessment of your workplace
  • Recognize the types of PPE available for protecting workers
  • Learn how the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) may dictate how to address PPE issues for workers with disabilities or religious protections.
  • Select the correct form of PPE for identified hazards
  • Implement a compliant PPE program for your organization that will protect workers and avoid costly OSHA or state agency violations
  • And more!
