The Personal Protective Equipment Course is designed to help those working in the various industries that utilize PPE as means to protect the worker from the natural harm that comes into the workplace. The course discusses the various hazards that personal protective equipment is designed to protect the worker from and outlines the various pieces of personal protective equipment, such as hand wear, footwear, face protection, eye protection, garments, partial garments and other equipment used to protect the physical body and things such as eyesight and hearing for workers who work in various capacities. The types of personal protective equipment vary with job description and are described in detail, according to body parts protected. Each item is defined in terms of its use, its common user and the materials used to make the various parts of personal protective equipment.
The course also has separate modules for different job descriptions, such as firefighters, construction workers, beekeepers, the military and even the police department. Those working in firefighting, as is shown in the course, wear completely different personal protective equipment as do workers working in a chemistry laboratory or in a beekeeping facility. The equipment is explained as to the materials they are made of and the standards to which they must aspire to keep up with.
Finally, personal protective equipment must be tested for its ability to maintain its integrity and actually do its job. Such standards are discussed in the course and depend upon which type of equipment a person is dealing with. There are standards that identify the varying degrees of protectability of the protective equipment.
This course will not require you to have previous experience in any particular area but you should have a high school reading level. No books will be required.
