Agenda
  • Importance of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Regulatory background
  • BGSUs written PPE Program
  • When PPE is necessary
  • What PPE is necessary
  • How to wear and limitations of assigned PPE

3
Importance of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • When hazards can not be eliminated through
    engineering and /or administrative controls, PPE
    must be used to protect the eyes, face, head,
    feet, hands, arms, body, ears, and lungs.
  • Preventable Injuries (BGSU History)
  • Chemical burns to the eyes
  • Chemical irritation to the eyes and skin
  • Particulate matter in the eye
  • Heat burns
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Cuts and abrasions

4
Importance of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • What is PPE?
  • Equipment that workers wear to protect
    themselves from hazards in their work
    environment.
  • Examples
  • hearing protection safety goggles
  • respirators safety glasses
  • hard hats safety shoes
  • gloves

BGSUs Written PPE Program Introduction
  • Program Enforcement
  • A violation of a University employees
    responsibility must be reported to the employees
    immediate supervisor for appropriate action.

14
BGSUs Written PPE Program Hazard Assessment
  • The hazard assessment used to determine hazards
    in the workplace include
  • Impact hazards
  • Penetration hazards
  • Compression hazards
  • Chemical hazards
  • Heat
  • Harmful dust
  • Optical radiation
  • Biological hazards
  • Noise hazards
  • Electrical hazards
  • Other

15
BGSUs Written PPE Program Hazard Re-Assessment
  • Supervisors must periodically reassess the
    workplace.
  • Elements to consider in the reassessment include
  • ü    Effectiveness of PPE Program
  • ü      Injury and illness experience
  • ü      Levels of exposure
  • ü      Adequacy of equipment selection
  • ü      Number of hour's workers wear various PPE
  • ü      Adequacy of training/fitting of PPE
  • ü      Program costs
  • ü      The adequacy of program records
  • ü      Coordination with overall safety and
    health program
  • ü      New equipment and/or processes

16
BGSUs Written PPE Program Selection Guidelines
  • After completion of the hazard assessment,
    Environmental Health and Safety assists in the
    following procedures used for selection of
    personal protective equipment
  • Reviews possible engineering and/or
    administrative controls before deciding to use
    PPE.
  • Matches the potential hazards with the most
    appropriate types of PPE using the PPE Selection
    Guidelines found in Appendix B of BGSUs written
    PPE Program.
  • If, during the hazard assessment, a noise or
    respiratory hazard is indicated, the Occupational
    Safety and Health Specialist will provide
    additional program information and evaluation.

17
BGSUs Written PPE Program Selection Guidelines
  • Careful consideration must be given to comfort
    and fit. Departments must provide the user with
    proper, well-fitted protective devices.
  • Defective and damaged equipment or PPE shall not
    be used.

18
BGSUs Written PPE Program Training
  • PPE1 training session (Supervisor Session)
  • PPE2 training session (This Session)

19
BGSUs Written PPE Program Training
  • Retraining is required, but not limited to, the
    following circumstances
  • Changes in the workplace or changes in the types
    of PPE to be used which would render previous
    training obsolete or
  • Inadequacies in an employee's or supervisors
    knowledge in the use of the assigned PPE.
  • When retraining occurs, a written certification
    that contains the name of each employee trained,
    the date, and the subject of the certification is
    required.
  • Contact Environmental Health and Safety for
    questions or concerns.

20
BGSUs Written PPE Program Cleaning and
Maintenance
  • It is important that all PPE be kept clean and
    properly maintained by the employee assigned to
    the equipment.
  • Cleaning is particularly important for eye and
    face protection. Dirty or fogged lenses can
    impair vision.
  • PPE must be inspected, cleaned, and maintained
    by employees at regular interval and as stated in
    the manufactures instructions.

21
BGSUs Written PPE Program Cleaning and
Maintenance
  • If the piece of PPE is in need of repair or
    replacement, it is the responsibility of the
    employee to bring it to the immediate attention
    of his/ her supervisor.
  • Do not use PPE if it is in need of repair or if
    it is not able to perform its intended function.
  • Contaminated PPE, which cannot be decontaminated,
    must be disposed of in a manner that protects
    employees from exposure to the hazard. To
    inquire about the proper disposal methods of
    contaminated PPE, contact Environmental Health
    and Safetys Safety and Health Coordinator at
    372-2171.
