Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) not only provides workers extra protection, but is often the last or ONLY line of defense against workplace hazards. When hazards cannot be eliminated and engineering controls aren’t available, what do workers and employers need to know about PPE? Join us in this interactive session as our presenters demonstrate the proper way to wear PPE, show innovations in wearable technology, describe when and how PPE provides protection and share tips to encourage workers to remember their PPE. Presenters Ellen Duysen, MPH, COHC and Aaron Yoder, PhD of the Central States Center for Agricultural Safety & Health (CS-CASH) are sure to educate and entertain the audience with their head to toe PPE tips.  “ASK THE EXPERT” session, an open discussion with presenters and industry experts, follows the presentation.
