You can't eliminate all physical hazards through engineering or administrative controls. Personal protective equipment provides a last line of defense. However, data shows that most workers who suffer eye, head, and foot injuries aren't wearing PPE. These injuries can be lessened or avoided altogether with proper PPE.
OSHA requires that all employers assess their workplace for hazards and certify this assessment. The National Safety Council's PPE Compliance Training Seminar will help you meet these requirements. In just four hours, we'll walk you through the key elements of the OSHA PPE regulation (29CFR 1910.132-140, Subpart I), and show you how to protect your employees and your business.

The relationship between PPE,administrative controls, and engineering controls
