Your Last Line of Defence: Personal Protective Equipment

Here at Sunlite Mitre 10, we know how important it is to keep yourself and your employees safe in the workplace. While implementing safety procedures and employing common sense and caution is often adequate protection from workplace mishaps, personal protection equipment (PPE) often acts as the last line of defence between your employee and serious harm.


What PPE Do You Need?

Depending on the project, it’s important to consider the different categories of PPE as they relate to your project.

  1. Head and face protection. For construction sites, welding, metalworking and carpentry.
  2. Eye protection. For electrical work, engineering jobs and working with chemicals.
  3. Hearing protection. For jobs that experience consistently high volumes of noise.
  4. Hand and skin protection. For working with chemicals, maintenance and custodial work and operating power tools.
  5. Respiratory protection. For jobs involving chemicals, carpentry and welding.

Adequate PPE clothing is paramount for protection for many projects, from welding or working with chemicals to DIY projects around the house. Engineers, maintenance workers, commercial painters, carpenters, lab workers and many other industries are often required to provide PPE gear for their workers.

Consider carefully what categories of PPE are necessary for your job and remember that it’s better to be overly cautious than to underestimate.
