The purpose of this Safety Bulletin is to provide Supervisors with a guide for instructing employees in the selection of appropriate clothing and certain types of personal protective equipment (PPE). This bulletin also serves as a reference to guide employees as to what types of clothing and personal protective equipment are recommended for specific types of work being done. This bulletin does not include or apply to clothing or PPE for persons subject to the blood borne pathogens or respirator.

Each employer shall assess their workplace to determine if hazards are present, or are likely to be present, which necessitate the use of personal protective equipment.
