What is a PPE hazard assessment?
A PPE hazard assessment is an evaluation of your workplace that
helps you determine what hazards employees are exposed
to and the personal protective equipment they need to protect
themselves from those hazards.
An effective assessment should include:
• The jobs(or tasks) that your employees do
• The hazards your employees are exposed to and where the
· hazards are located
• The likelihood that those hazards could injure your employees
• The severity of a potential injury
• The types of PPE necessary to protect your employees from those
What types of PPE may be necessary?
• Torso and abdominal protection
• Eye and face protection
• Head protection
• Foot protection
• Leg protection
• Hand protection
• Hearing protection
• Respiratory protection
• Fall protection
This often involves the use of a lift or safety devices to prevent falls like a harness that is worn. This adds cost but insures that the job is done properly. There are those who do not comply with this protection and do roofs at a lower bid pricing. We choose to not be one of those companies. We strongly feel that It is not "if" but "when" those types of unsafe (company) practices come back to ruin those types of companies. There are a lot of companies we have observed in the areas that do not follow the approved method of cleaning as well as the protection.
