Safety Tip of the Month:
Rules of Thumb for When You’re Assigned PPE:
- Inspect it. Every time you use it! If it’s damaged or worn out, do not use it. Replace it or have it repaired, if it is safe to do so.
- Ensure a good fit. PPE can’t protect you properly if it doesn't fit you correctly.
- Use it consistently. Workplace hazards are always present, so always wear your PPE.
- Follow instructions for PPE removal, storage, cleaning and disposal.
Reminder: Contact your staffing supervisor any time your job responsibilities or work environment/conditions change.
