Should PPE Be My First Course of Action for Safety ?

September 02, 2020

Not normally. Using or wearing PPE is typically a final, not first, course of action for safety.

Although PPE plays an important role, your employer should prioritize hazard-control measures to protect your livelihood. Because of such measures, most workplaces mandate PPE as a back-up or temporary safety method.

However, in the case that there are no other ways to stop or mitigate apparent risks, using PPE can act as a first action for safety.
