Importance of PPE in the Workplace

- Occupational hazards vary depending on the work specifics and include biological, physical, electrical, chemical, and biohazard risks. Other types of occupational hazards include heat, noise, or airborne particulate matter.
- According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, nearly people a day lose their lives globally due to occupational accidents and injuries. The highest risk groups are industrial and agricultural workers. Many occupational risks can be reduced or eliminated by using appropriate PPE.
- One of the main challenges in the working environment related to industrial hazards is persuading end users to wear applicable PPE at all times; majority of occupational injuries happen when PPE is not worn. Surveys among PPE end users in North America show that eye protection is the most ignored PPE. Over % of workers who suffered eye injuries were either not using eye protection or were using the wrong kind of eye protection for the job at the time of their injury.
- Other PPE categories with high noncompliance are hearing protection and protective gloves.
