What are PPE?

PPE or personal protective equipment is any device that helps care for and preserve the integrity of your collaborator when carrying out their activities.

El equipo de protección en el trabajo incluye gafas de seguridad y protectores faciales y debe usarse para tareas que puedan causar daño ocular o pérdida de la visión, aerosoles de líquidos tóxicos. Además evita algún tipo de salpicaduras y quemaduras.

Los elementos de protección se categorizan dependiendo de la parte o zona del cuerpo que se desea proteger, por ejemplo:

  • Head: Head Guards y capucha o pasamontañas;
  • Ojos y rostro: glasses, viseras y máscara de soldadura;
  • Hearing: hearing protectors, earplugs and mufflers;
  • Respiratory: masks, filters and respirators;
  • Body: aprons and bulletproof vests;
  • Superiors: gloves, brazaletes, mangueras y crema protectora contra agentes químicos;
  • Lower limbs: footwear (boots and sneakers, for example), socks, leggings and pants;

All personnel, visitors who are going to enter an area where there is some risk, in this way we avoid an accident or situation that endangers the integrity of people.

Just as it is important that companies provide the necessary tools, it is also important that collaborators do their part and comply with putting on all the equipment, in this way they take care of each other.

Every job needs to use PPE. Here are some examples of jobs in which we can see some personal protective equipment on their uniform.

gardener, doctor etc.

What to do after taking off your protective equipment?

Continuously clean, wash and disinfect PPE. Keep hearing protectors hygienically clean to avoid infections and store safety glasses in places where they cannot break. It is also important to add that the lifespan of PPE is advisable to change within 2 to 3 years; However, this depends on the use given to them and the way the equipment is cared for. The deterioration of equipment if it is not cared for and used correctly can be faster or slower.

That said, it is important to have good communication with collaborators to be aware of any mishandling of equipment or simply to be alert for any equipment that is in poor condition.
