Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)

(Spanish)

Why Is It So Important To Wear Personal Protection Equipment?

Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) is a critical line of defense against harmful exposure when engineering administrative controls and work practices cannot completely eliminate the hazards. Examples include hard hats, eye wear, face guards, gloves, back support belts and steel toe boots. Currently, PPE not only reduces the risk of injuries, wearing a face mask as part of your PPE offers further protection from Covid-19.

If an injury occurs because of negligence to wear your PPE, chances are that you will be injured, lose time from work and let your team players down. Please wear it and be responsible.

Remember, wear your PPE and have the personal protective barrier you need against hazards that we are not able to completely control. Be Safe!

Por Qué es Tan Importante Usar Equipo de Protecciόn Personal?

Equipo de Protecciόn Personal (EPP) es una línea de defensa critica contra la exposiciόn dañina cuando controles administrativos de ingenieria y practicas de trabajo no pueden eliminar completamente los peligros. Ejemplos incluyen cascos, anteojos, protectores faciales, guantes, cinturones de soporte para la espalda y botas de punta de acero. Actualmente, EPP no solo reduce el riesgo de lesiones, usando una mascarilla como parte de su EPP ofrece mayor protecciόn.contra Covid-19.

Si ocurre una lesiόn por negligencia en el uso de su EPP, lo más probable es que se lastime, y pierda tiempo de su trabajo y decepcionará a los miembros de su equipo. Por favor úselo y sea responsable.

Acuerdese, use su EPP y tenga la barrera de protecciόn personal que nesesita
contra peligros que no podemos completamente controlar. ¡Esté Seguro!
