Personal Protective Equipment training-Background

Many workplaces (such as chemical plants, oil and gas facilities, manufacturing plants, power generation plants, electricity distribution grids, warehouses and many more such places) have several different kinds of hazards that can cause injuries and life threatening accidents to workers. To protect workers from these, it is essential to use personal protective equipment. For this, Personal Protective Equipment training (PPE safety training for short) is needed. This may include safety goggles, eye and face protection shields, hearing protection aids, hard hats and so on. It may either be a general PPE training or a part of chemical plant ppe training.

In the US OSHA regulations deal with the employers duties as regards giving the right PPE to workers as well as PPE training to be given to them.

What benefits does the employer get?

This compliance e-learning course meets this requirement in a number of ways.

This reduces your compliance headaches substantially, especially if you have hundreds of employees at different locations.
