Personal protective equipment, or PPE, should always be considered your last line of defense. Safety glasses, protective gloves, a hard hat or other personal protective equipment will not eliminate your exposure to the hazards of your job. They can, however, help to minimize the risk of injury or illness if they are selected and used the right way.
