Why is Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Training Important?

It may sound like an overstatement to say that training can save your life as an employee and if you're an employer, training can do same for your workers and you. When it comes to health and safety training particularly now the subject of PPE training, it's definitely not an overstatement!

You must have heard of the term "workers compensation insurance" and "wrongful death lawsuit". Sounds negative, right? These can be any company's ordeal and even worst when there is neglect to health and safety plus training. As a worker, no amount of money or compensation not to you or your family can bring back your life or restore a damaged body after things go wrong. It takes a second of chance for irreversible incidents to become a tragedy.

PPE is all about the equipment required to carry out a range of work activities, operations and services to keep employees safe across different industries. Part of the industries that critically require the use of PPE includes healthcare and medical, manufacturing, telecommunication, energy, food and agriculture, transportation and logistics, defense and law enforcement, public works, cleaning and fumigation, oil and gas, construction and maritime industry.

Yes, there are limitations with the use of PPE. One important fact to note about PPE is that it should only be your last resort or line of defense against accident because it does not remove the hazard. The best way to prevent accidents still remains to remove the hazard (elimination).

However, not all hazards in a job or workplace can be eliminated, hence other complementary measures such as practicable engineering or administrative control can be put in place. In some causes, some jobs come with unavoidable risks or hazards that can only be mitigated by the use of PPE.

Workers must be trained on the correct and appropriate usage and how to carry out risk assessment on the PPE they use. The PPE issued to workers must be authentic, specific to the job hazard it is meant for and comfortable for the worker because the wrong type of or defective and uncomfortable PPE can be in itself a hazard to workers or anyone else it is assigned to.
