This course will help acquaint you with the various types of personal protective equipment (PPE) specifically designed to protect your torso, arms, and legs. It will assist you in selecting and maintaining the proper equipment based on the workplace hazards present. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements - recall general OSHA requirements related to personal protective equipment, choose the appropriate body protection to guard against workplace hazards, and describe how to inspect and maintain body protection.
