PPE for Housekeeping

PPE for Housekeeping duty

Workers’ compensation cases stemming from employees who did not wear PPE when cleaning up spills or other material, such as broken glass or plywood, and then suffered cuts or splinters.

Wear basic PPE – such as closed-toe shoes and safety glasses, gloves – while performing housekeeping. Determine what type of PPE to don based on the potential risks. When you put on protective clothing or equipment make sure there are no rips or tears, secure all fasteners, make sure it fits properly.
