5.1 Demonstrate correct use of PPE
Weegy: PPE should be used when all other measures are inadequate to control exposure. [ It protects only the wearer, while being worn. If it fails, PPE offers no protection at all. Types of PPE Respirators Protective gloves Protective clothing Protective footwear Eye protection When deciding about PPE ask the supplier, your trade association or the manufacturer. Is it suitable for the conditions of the job? Does it offer the right level of protection? What sort of training or maintenance is required? How do I know when it needs replacing? It is important that employees know why they need PPE and are trained to use it correctly. Otherwise it is unlikely to protect as required. Does it fit correctly? How does the wearer feel? Is it comfortable? Are all items of PPE compatible? Does PPE interfere with the job being done? ] (More)
