Protect Yourself with PPE

Protection from bodily harm within the workplace environment is critically important. When working around a variety of hazards, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) provide a safety barrier against physical hazards.

If you're working near charged equipment, arc flash protection and flame-resistant clothing is vital and often mandatory in preventing severe injury or death. This can include arc-resistant shirt, pants or coveralls or a multilayer flash suit. Additional PPE requirements consist of flash hoods, voltage-rated gloves, EH-rated safety shoes, safety glasses and hard hats.

NFPA 70E Requires It!

The 2012 NFPA 70E requires employees working in areas where there are potential electrical hazards to be provided with personal protective equipment (PPE) that is appropriate for the specific parts of the body to be protected. NFPA also requires employees to wear hearing protection. Properly rated equipment is needed to test voltages. Insulated tools are required for workers who are to perform testing and troubleshooting on energized equipment. Read more about NFPA 70E compliance.
