Competent Person Personal Protective Equipment

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

OSHA Standards require employers to keep their workplace free from known health and safety hazards. The proper use of PPE is an essential step in helping provide that safe work environment. Employees need to know what PPE is required, how and when it is to be used, and how to maintain and clean it. U.S. Safety provides two levels of training for the proper use of PPE: Awareness/User and Competent Person.
