Workplace Hazard Assessments/Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1910.132, requires employers to assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or likely to be present, which would necessitate the use of PPE. If such hazards are present, or likely to be present, PPE must be selected for all affected employees along with training on the selected equipment. Hard hats, goggles, safety glasses, faces shields, earplugs, steel-toed shoes, dust masks, and respirators are all forms of PPE.

A written certification must verify that a hazard assessment has been completed. The attached Workplace Hazard PPE Assessment form will serve as the written certification. Use this instructional sheet to assist in completing the attached Workplace Hazard Assessment form.

The full Workplace Hazard - Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Assessments document is available in both Word and PDF version.
