OSHA requires employers to protect their employees from workplace hazards through the use of engineering or work practice controls. When these controls are not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) is required.
Employers are required to assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or are likely to be present, which necessitates the use of PPE. If employees use PPE, employers must establish general procedures, called a PPE program, to give to employees necessary protective equipment and to train them to use it properly. The program should explain when to use PPE and how to select, maintain and evaluate it.
