Course Overview

"Do I have to wear this? Is it protecting me? From what, and how can I be sure?" If these questions sound familiar, you're not alone. The choice and variety of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in the construction industry can often seem overwhelming.

In this course, we'll not only help you navigate the world of PPE but also understand its significance in the bigger picture of workplace safety. We'll dive into the guidelines laid down by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) – including the General Duty Clause, 29 CFR 1910.132, and 29 CFR 1926.28 – ensuring you understand how to protect yourself and others from job-related hazards. 

Knowing these guidelines is just the start; understanding and implementing them effectively is where safety truly begins.

From hard hats to fall protection, ear plugs to respirators, the course covers all aspects of PPE. You'll learn about the various types of PPE, the specific hazards they protect against, and when they're required. With a strong emphasis on practical strategies, we'll guide you in selecting and using the correct PPE, ensuring you meet all regulatory requirements.

But PPE is about more than just wearing the gear; it's about knowing why and when to use it and understanding our respective duties. We’ll also help you understand the roles and responsibilities of both employees and employers when it comes to PPE selection, provision, training, and maintenance. 

By the end of this course, you'll be ready to stride confidently into your workplace, knowing what PPE you need, why you need it, and how to use it correctly. 

Whether you're a construction worker aiming to protect yourself or an employer committed to providing a safe environment for your team, this course is your guide.This program is available with Spanish and French closed captions.
