If you are an employer in the industrial or manufacturing industry, then OSHA requires you to protect your workers from hazardous conditions in the workplace. If you are unable to control a hazardous environment, then you should protect your workers with personal protective equipment (PPE).
Some examples of hazards that PPE can protect workers from include:
• Chemical splashing
• Toxic inhalation
• Burns & skin/organ deterioration
• Long-term & short-term exposure to harmful substances
As an employer, you are responsible for the care of your employees in hazardous industrial or manufacturing conditions where
