Managing PPE

We’ve written about personal protective equipment (PPE) on this blog a number of times before including footwear [1], lab coats (here [2] and here [3]), and the latest OSHA updates [4].

But PPE in the healthcare setting is arguably one of the most important factors for worker safety, and misusing it can result in injury or illness. Here are additional points to remember when administering PPE training.

We’ve also uploaded an easy to use PPE checklist [5] that outlines use and storage, amount, and when to change or replace items.

And if you haven’t already, check out these video clips on glove safety and footwear fashion [6].
