Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Supplier in Singapore

According to OSHA, Personal Protective Equipment, commonly referred to as “PPE”, is equipment worn to minimise exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses and shoes, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, or coveralls, vests and full body suits.

In 2020, PPE has become one of the main concerns for many organisations. Since the Covid-19 pandemic has spread across the world, community cases have gone up. Not only do organisations need to discover new safety solutions to protect their employees and adapt to the current situation, the government must set new plans and requirements for this pandemic.

Why is PPE important?

 

Ensuring a safe workplace  includes providing instructions, procedures, training and supervision to encourage people to work safely and responsibly.

Even when engineering controls and safe systems of work have been applied, some hazards may remain. These include injuries to:

  • the lungs, e.g. from breathing in contaminated air
  • the head and feet, e.g. from falling materials
  • the eyes, e.g. from flying particles or splashes of corrosive liquids
  • the skin, e.g. from contact with corrosive materials
  • the body, e.g. from extremes of heat or cold
  •  

    PPE is needed in all of these cases to reduce the risk of injury.
