The Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) training is a basic guide to common laboratory PPE and their uses. This training will cover general recommendations for appropriate PPE, where to find lab procedure specific PPE requirements, when PPE should and should not be used, and knowing the different types of PPE and the hazards they protect against. Since this is not a complete guide to all PPE used on hazards in your specific laboratory this training will help guide you to resources to make the right decision of your particular laboratory hazards. After this training; you will have a better understanding of how to choose and use PPE, where to go to get information if you are unsure about PPE, and what hazards PPE will and will not protect against.
This training will is available for all UW-Madison employees.
