The "Personal Protective Equipment" Standard

Personal protection equipment is important. So important, that in 1994, OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) established 29 CFR 1910.132-138, the "Personal Protection Equipment" standard.

Briefly stated, this standard requires that employers must establish and administer an effective PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) program for employees and that employees be trained in the proper use of PPE.
