PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
WHEN USED PROPERLY, suitable protective equipment can
prevent many serious injuries in construction work.
Eyes are extremely
delicate. Eyesight can be
permanently impaired or even completely lost if flying chips of steel or
fragments of concrete strike your eyes. When
cutting concrete, wear goggles or a face shield.
When drilling overhead or when dust is present, suitable goggles are
required. When working around
concrete vibrators, safety goggles or a face shield will prevent most splashes
from reaching your eyes. When drilling or cutting pressure-treated or preserved
lumber, creosote timbers or any lumber, always wear eye protection.
If glasses are worn with corrective lenses, goggles may be needed to be
worn over glasses for additional protection from damage or breakage.
Now, let us
consider nose and throat protection. To
prevent nose and throat irritation when working in dusty conditions, wear
appropriate respiratory protection. The
type of work being done will determine the type of respiratory protection
Falls can be
prevented if employees properly use approved safety harnesses and life lines.
Use a safety harness and lanyard to limit the fall distance to 6 feet.
They only work, when use correctly.
Contact your supervisor for the proper use of this equipment.
