Introduction

Public entity employees may be exposed to a variety of safety hazards while performing
their jobs. By wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), employees can
help reduce some of the hazards that are inherent to their jobs and prevent occupational
injuries and illnesses. The purpose of this manual is identify the basic types of PPE that
should be worn for the more common tasks that public entity employees perform so
injuries and illnesses may be prevented.
PPE includes clothing and accessories designed to create a barrier between the employee
and contact with harmful agents in the work environment. Examples of PPE include
safety glasses, hard hats, gloves, respirators, earplugs, safety shoes, and other specialized
clothing and equipment. Examples of harmful agents include flying particles, hot
objects, hazardous chemicals, falling objects, bloodborne pathogens, high noise, and
anything else that could cause injury or illness if it comes into contact with the employee.
PPE should be considered as a secondary measure to control workplace hazards and
protect employees. Where possible, safety hazards should be engineered out of the work
environment. For example, if a noisy piece of equipment can be replaced with a quieter
model, or sound-proofed, that would be the preferred method of hazard control instead of
making employees wear earplugs. Examples of other engineering controls include
machine guards, mechanical ventilation and enclosing hazardous operations. Where
engineering controls are not feasible, administrative controls should be considered.
Examples of administrative controls include limiting an employee’s exposure time in
noisy areas or substituting less hazardous chemicals. If hazards still exist after
implementing engineering and administrative controls, then PPE should be provided.
Entities should include the cost of PPE in their annual budgets.
Many different types of PPE are available. Entities should assess their operations and
determine the hazards associated with each job and provide employees with the
appropriate PPE. Section II of this manual contains sample PPE Hazard Assessment
Forms that may be used to conduct an assessment. After the assessment is conducted,
PPE should be selected and purchased. It is advisable to involve employees in the
selection process so comfort and style are considered. This will help ensure that PPE is
used when needed. Employees also need to be trained in proper PPE use and limitations,
and a PPE inspection and maintenance program should be established.
Section III of this handbook includes PPE guidelines for over 120 different tasks. For
each job task, the hazards and recommended PPE are provided. Additional comments
about the hazards may be provided along with a section where you can note special
precautions to take while performing the particular activity. It is not possible to identify
every possible task and associated hazards that public entity employees may perform in
this guide. Therefore, it is vital that supervisors, managers, and employees continually
evaluate the workplace for potential safety hazards and determine the appropriate hazard
controls, including PPE.
Section IV of this manual lists many of the national standards and regulations regarding
the design, construction and testing of PPE. These standards should be consulted when
3
questions arise regarding the type of PPE needed for a certain job or for protection from a
specific hazard. Local vendors may be able to help you in the PPE selection process.
Check the yellow pages for companies that specialize in PPE. The internet can also be
used to search for PPE suppliers. Some vendors may also provide employee training in
the proper use of the equipment you purchase from them.
The OSHA regulation for hazard assessment and PPE selection is outlined in Section V.
While public entities in Colorado are presently not covered under OSHA, it is a good idea
to follow to these industry standards.
Finally, Section VI includes an index to help you quickly identify specific jobs contained
in this manual for which PPE is needed.
If you have any questions regarding this handbook or would like assistance with your
PPE program, feel free to call your CIRSA Loss Control Representative at 303-757-5475
or 800-228-7136.

OSHA Compliance Guidelines for Hazard Assessment
and Personal Protective Equipment Selection

Non-mandatory Compliance Guidelines for Hazard Assessment and Personal Protective
Equipment Selection. – OSHA 1910 Subpart I Appendix B
This Appendix is intended to provide compliance assistance for public entities and
employees in implementing requirements for a hazard assessment and the selection of
personal protective equipment.
1. Controlling hazards. PPE devices alone should not be relied on to provide protection
against hazards, but should be used in conjunction with guards, engineering controls, and
sound manufacturing practices.
2. Assessment and selection. It is necessary to consider certain general guidelines for
assessing the foot, head, eye and face, and hand hazard situations that exist in an
occupational or educational operation or process, and to match the protective devices to
the particular hazard. It should be the responsibility of the safety officer to exercise
common sense and appropriate expertise to accomplish these tasks.
3. Assessment guidelines. In order to assess the need for PPE the following steps should
be taken:
a. Survey. Conduct a walk-through survey of the areas in question. The purpose of the
survey is to identify sources of hazards to workers and co-workers. Consideration should
be given to the basic hazard categories:
(a) Impact
(b) Penetration
(c) Compression (roll-over)
(d) Chemical
(e) Heat
(f) Harmful dust
(g) Light (optical) radiation
b. Sources. During the walk-through survey the safety officer should observe:
(a) sources of motion; i.g., machinery or processes where any movement of tools,
machine elements or particles could exist, or movement of personnel that could result in
collision with stationary objects;
(b) sources of high temperatures that could result in burns, eye injury or ignition of
protective equipment, etc.;
(c) types of chemical exposures;
145
(d) sources of harmful dust;
(e) sources of light radiation, i.e., welding, brazing, cutting, furnaces, heat treating, high
intensity lights, etc.;
(f) sources of falling objects or potential for dropping objects;
(g) sources of sharp objects which might pierce the feet or cut the hands;
(h) sources of rolling or pinching objects which could crush the feet;
(i) layout of workplace and location of co-workers; and
(j) any electrical hazards. In addition, injury/accident data should be reviewed to help
identify problem areas.
c. Organize data. Following the walk-through survey, it is necessary to organize the data
and information for use in the assessment of hazards. The objective is to prepare for an
analysis of the hazards in the environment to enable proper selection of protective
equipment.
d. Analyze data. Having gathered and organized data on a workplace, an estimate of the
potential for injuries should be made. Each of the basic hazards (paragraph 3.a.) should
be reviewed and a determination made as to the type, level of risk, and seriousness of
potential injury from each of the hazards found in the area. The possibility of exposure to
several hazards simultaneously should be considered.
4. Selection guidelines. After completion of the procedures in paragraph 3, the general
procedure for selection of protective equipment is to:
(a) become familiar with the potential hazards and the type of protective equipment that
is available, and what it can do; i.g., splash protection, impact protection, etc.;
(b) compare the hazards associated with the environment; i.g., impact velocities, masses,
projectile shape, radiation intensities, with the capabilities of the available protective
equipment;
(c) select the protective equipment which ensures a level of protection greater than the
minimum required to protect employees from the hazards; and
(d) fit the user with the protective device and give instructions on care and use of the
PPE. It is very important that end users be made aware of all warning labels for and
limitations of their PPE.
5. Fitting the device. Careful consideration must be given to comfort and fit. PPE that
fits poorly will not afford the necessary protection. Continued wearing of the device is
more likely if it fits the wearer comfortably. Protective devices are generally available in
a variety of sizes. Care should be taken to ensure that the right size is selected.
6. Devices with adjustable features. Adjustments should be made on an individual basis
for a comfortable fit that will maintain the protective device in the proper position.
146
Particular care should be taken in fitting devices for eye protection against dust and
chemical splash to ensure that the devices are sealed to the face. In addition, proper
fitting of helmets is important to ensure that they will not fall off during work operations.
In some cases a chin strap may be necessary to keep the helmet on an employee's head.
(Chin straps should break at a reasonably low force, however, so as to prevent a
strangulation hazard). Where manufacturer's instructions are available, they should be
followed carefully.
7. Reassessment of hazards. It is the responsibility of the safety officer to reassess the
workplace hazard situation as necessary, by identifying and evaluating new equipment
and processes, reviewing accident records, and reevaluating the suitability of previously
selected PPE.
8. Selection chart guidelines for eye and face protection. Some occupations (not a
complete list) for which eye protection should be routinely considered are: carpenters,
electricians, machinists, mechanics and repairers, millwrights, plumbers and pipe fitters,
sheet metal workers and tinsmiths, assemblers, sanders, grinding machine operators, lathe
and milling machine operators, sawyers, welders, laborers, chemical process operators
and handlers, and timber cutting and logging workers. The following chart provides
general guidance for the proper selection of eye and face protection to protect against
hazards associated with the listed hazard "source" operations.

Notes to Eye and Face Protection Selection Chart:
(1) Care should be taken to recognize the possibility of multiple
and simultaneous exposure to a variety of hazards. Adequate
protection against the highest level of each of the hazards should be
provided. Protective devices do not provide unlimited protection.
(2) Operations involving heat may also involve light radiation. As
required by the standard, protection from both hazards must be
provided.
(3) Faceshields should only be worn over primary eye protection
(spectacles or goggles).
(4) As required by the standard, filter lenses must meet the
requirements for shade designations in 1910.133(a)(5). Tinted and
148
shaded lenses are not filter lenses unless they are marked or
identified as such.
(5) As required by the standard, persons whose vision requires the
use of prescription (Rx) lenses must wear either protective devices
fitted with prescription (Rx) lenses or protective devices designed
to be worn over regular prescription (Rx) eyewear.
(6) Wearers of contact lenses must also wear appropriate eye and
face protection devices in a hazardous environment. It should be
recognized that dusty and/or chemical environments may represent an
additional hazard to contact lens wearers.
(7) Caution should be exercised in the use of metal frame
protective devices in electrical hazard areas.
(8) Atmospheric conditions and the restricted ventilation of the
protector can cause lenses to fog. Frequent cleansing may be
necessary.
(9) Welding helmets or faceshields should be used only over primary
eye protection (spectacles or goggles).
(10) Non-sideshield spectacles are available for frontal protection
only, but are not acceptable eye protection for the sources and
operations listed for "impact."
(11) Ventilation should be adequate, but well protected from splash
entry. Eye and face protection should be designed and used so that it
provides both adequate ventilation and protects the wearer from
splash entry.
(12) Protection from light radiation is directly related to filter
lens density. See note (4) . Select the darkest shade that allows
task performance.
9. Selection guidelines for head protection. All head protection (helmets) is designed to
provide protection from impact and penetration hazards caused by falling objects. Head
protection is also available which provides protection from electric shock and burn.
When selecting head protection, knowledge of potential electrical hazards is important.
Class A helmets, in addition to impact and penetration resistance, provide electrical
protection from low-voltage conductors (they are proof tested to 2,200 volts). Class B
helmets, in addition to impact and penetration resistance, provide electrical protection
from high-voltage conductors (they are proof tested to 20,000 volts). Class C helmets
provide impact and penetration resistance (they are usually made of aluminum which
conducts electricity), and should not be used around electrical hazards.
Where falling object hazards are present, helmets must be worn. Some examples include:
working below other workers who are using tools and materials which could fall;
working around or under conveyor belts which are carrying parts or materials; working
below machinery or processes which might cause material or objects to fall; and working
on exposed energized conductors. Some examples of occupations for which head
protection should be routinely considered are: carpenters, electricians, linemen,
mechanics and repairers, plumbers and pipe fitters, assemblers, packers, wrappers,
sawyers, welders, laborers, freight handlers, timber cutting and logging, stock handlers,
and warehouse laborers.
10. Selection guidelines for foot protection. Safety shoes and boots which meet the
ANSI Z41-1991 Standard provide both impact and compression protection. Where
necessary, safety shoes can be obtained which provide puncture protection. In some work
149
situations, metatarsal protection should be provided, and in other special situations
electrical conductive or insulating safety shoes would be appropriate.
Safety shoes or boots with impact protection would be required for carrying or handling
materials such as packages, objects, parts or heavy tools, which could be dropped; and,
for other activities where objects might fall onto the feet. Safety shoes or boots with
compression protection would be required for work activities involving skid trucks
(manual material handling carts) around bulk rolls (such as paper rolls) and around heavy
pipes, all of which could potentially roll over an employee's feet. Safety shoes or boots
with puncture protection would be required where sharp objects such as nails, wire, tacks,
screws, large staples, scrap metal etc., could be stepped on by employees causing a foot
injury.
Some occupations (not a complete list) for which foot protection should be routinely
considered are: shipping and receiving clerks, stock clerks, carpenters, electricians,
machinists, mechanics and repairers, plumbers and pipe fitters, structural metal workers,
assemblers, drywall installers and lathers, packers, wrappers, craters, punch and stamping
press operators, sawyers, welders, laborers, freight handlers, gardeners and groundskeepers, timber cutting and logging workers, stock handlers and warehouse laborers.
11. Selection guidelines for hand protection. Gloves are often relied upon to prevent
cuts, abrasions, burns, and skin contact with chemicals that are capable of causing local
or systemic effects following dermal exposure. OSHA is unaware of any gloves that
provide protection against all potential hand hazards, and commonly available glove
materials provide only limited protection against many chemicals. Therefore, it is
important to select the most appropriate glove for a particular application and to
determine how long it can be worn, and whether it can be reused.
It is also important to know the performance characteristics of gloves relative to the
specific hazard anticipated; e.g., chemical hazards, cut hazards, flame hazards, etc. These
performance characteristics should be assessed by using standard test procedures. Before
purchasing gloves, the employer should request documentation from the manufacturer
that the gloves meet the appropriate test standard(s) for the hazard(s) anticipated. Other
factors to be considered for glove selection in general include:
(A) As long as the performance characteristics are acceptable, in certain circumstances, it
may be more cost effective to regularly change cheaper gloves than to reuse more
expensive types; and,
(B) The work activities of the employee should be studied to determine the degree of
dexterity required, the duration, frequency, and degree of exposure of the hazard, and the
physical stresses that will be applied.
With respect to selection of gloves for protection against chemical hazards:
(A) The toxic properties of the chemical(s) must be determined; in particular, the ability
of the chemical to cause local effects on the skin and/or to pass through the skin and
cause systemic effects;
150
(B) Generally, any "chemical resistant" glove can be used for dry powders;
(C) For mixtures and formulated products (unless specific test data are available), a glove
should be selected on the basis of the chemical component with the shortest breakthrough
time, since it is possible for solvents to carry active ingredients through polymeric
materials; and,
(D) Employees must be able to remove the gloves in such a manner as to prevent skin
contamination.
12. Cleaning and maintenance. It is important that all PPE be kept clean and properly
maintained. Cleaning is particularly important for eye and face protection where dirty or
fogged lenses could impair vision.
For the purposes of compliance with 1910.132 (a) and (b), PPE should be inspected,
cleaned, and maintained at regular intervals so that the PPE provides the requisite
protection. It is also important to ensure that contaminated PPE which cannot be
decontaminated is disposed of in a manner that protects employees from exposure to
hazards.
