Course Objectives

The objectives of this course are to train employees about the contents of a PPE program and outline considerations for selecting proper PPE.

Per 29 CFR 1910.132(f)(1):

The employer shall provide training to each employee who is required by this section to use PPE. Each such employee shall be trained to know at least the following:

  • When PPE is necessary;
  • What PPE is necessary;
  • How to properly don, doff, adjust, and wear PPE;
  • The limitations of the PPE; and
  • The proper care, maintenance, useful life and disposal of the PPE.

Course Outline

This course consists of 2 sections. Students are required to take each section in sequential order as listed below.

Course Exams

This course has 1 final exam. The student must complete the course section before attempting the exam. The final exam consists of 10 questions randomly selected from a large pool of questions. A 70% score or better is required to pass the exam. Students who do not pass the exam the first time may retake the exam as many times as necessary in order to pass.

Additional Training

This training should be combined with company specific training on the employer's PPE Program, including the specific equipment that the employee may use.

Per 29 CFR 1910.132(f)(3);

When the employer has reason to believe that any affected employee who has already been trained does not have the understanding and skill required by paragraph (f)(2) of this section, the employer shall retrain each such employee. Circumstances where retraining is required include, but are not limited to, situations where:

1910.132(f)(3)(i)

Changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete; or

1910.132(f)(3)(ii)

Changes in the types of PPE to be used render previous training obsolete; or

1910.132(f)(3)(iii)

Inadequacies in an affected employee's knowledge or use of assigned PPE indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite understanding or skill.

1910.132(f)(4)

The employer shall verify that each affected employee has received and understood the required training through a written certification that contains the name of each employee trained, the date(s) of training, and that identifies the subject of the certification.

When required by OSHA standards, workers must receive additional training on the specific hazards of their job.

Training providers should be used to ensure credibility and augment a company's training program. Therefore, in addition to the training provided by an outside party, students should receive site-specific training that is supplied by his or her own companies. This training should target the company's unique approach to hazard prevention, including the use of site-specific equipment, health and safety policies, and emergency procedures. As a rule, this company specific training should be well documented.

The bottom line in ALL SITUATIONS is that employers are required to ensure that their employees are adequately trained to do their job.
