OSHA Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Summary

Clarification of Employer Duty To Provide PPE & Train Each Employee

Non-compliance regarding violations for PPE is now on a per-employee basis rather than a simple per-incident basis.

OSHA may also issue employers additional citations for not providing and documenting proper training and/or PPE based on this directive. This new ruling could have a big effect on your bottom line and increase future costs if you are not prepared. Always be sure to be in compliance with OSHA’s new PPE requirements!


How Would Violations Impact You?

Take a look at this quick example:

  • One employee is exposed or affected: one citation.
  • Twenty employees are exposed or affected: twenty citations.
