Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should always be used when working with hazardous materials of any kind. OSHA's HAZWOPER Regulation classifies PPE into four categories: Levels A, B, C, and D. This safety training video explains each level, and alerts viewers to potential problems that could arise from using PPE.
Level A PPE gives the highest level of skin, respiratory, and eye protection and should be used when you face the most danger from contamination. Level A includes a full face piece respirator protecting your eyes, nose, and lungs, and provides a positive-pressure supply of air to keeps contaminated air out. Viewers learn about the two types of positive-pressure air respirators: Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and Supplied-Air Respirators (SAR). Level A PPE includes Totally-Encapsulating Chemical Protective Clothing (TECP Suits). This course also illustrates levels B, C, and D PPE and explains the amount of protection each provides.
Workers should understand the importance of the equipment they use to protect themselves from exposure to hazardous materials. By understanding their PPE, workers are better prepared to correctly use equipment and watch out for problems they may encounter. Watch this safety training course and learn how to protect yourself from hazardous contaminants.
