Personal Protective Equipment Course Contents

These accidents are easily preventable if those using PPE understand its importance, and how to correctly maintain it.
This course explains the different kinds of hazards that PPE protects you from, as well covering the different types of Personal Protective Equipment, and the laws in place that relate to the provision and use of PPE at work.
iHasco PPE training is designed to improve the occupational health and safety of workers in high-risk environments.
