PPE, is exclusively used for the safety of an employee working in an organization. It is the basic rule of the company that it has to issue away few safety equipments or products to protect the worker in the work atmosphere.
Eg: A welder has to be given a heat resistant goggles, Gloves and Shoes in order to protect himself against the heat emitted during his operation.
I would like to mention a normal safety practice which is followed in our factory, our factory deals with fabricated steel and aluminium parts, there are chances that somall particles of these would be dissolved in the atmosphere due to cutting and sawing. Due to this we tend to issue a safety goggles to all the visitors/customers who visit our factory permises. we have ensured a strict order regarding it. This is because safety is not only meant for our employees but for all those who are associated with us.
It's always better to take precautions rather than regreting over it later.

pc vermaDear Mennu mathew,
Personal protective equipment, or PPE, is designed to protect workers from serious workplace injuries or illnesses resulting from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Besides face shields, safety glasses, hard hats, and safety shoes, protective equipment includes a variety of devices and garments such as goggles,coveralls, gloves, vests, earplugs, and respirators.
Using personal protective equipment is often essential, but it is generally the last line of defense after engineering controls, work practices, and administrative controls.
For use in Industrial work places, pl. find attached a useful Information on PPE selection.

ANGEL GUNTHER VEGAHow do you deal with employees and contractors in hundreds or thousands. This is good enough for a small unit. Just think of seasonal changes, damages, you will get heaps of papers.
