Introduction
A.
Scope
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) require
employers to protect their employees from workplace hazards such as
machines, work procedures, and hazardous substances that can cause
injury. The preferred way to do this is through engineering controls or
work practice and administrative controls, but when these controls are
not feasible or do not provide sufficient protection, an alternative or
supplementary method of protection is to provide workers with
personal protective equipment (PPE) and the know-how to use it
properly.
This document serves as the written guide for Gettysburg College
compliance to 29 CFR 1910.132, titled, “Personal Protective
Equipment” and the personal protective equipment program
requirements contained therein.
B.
Application
Personal protective equipment shall be provided, used, and maintained
in a sanitary and reliable condition wherever environmental, chemical,
radiological, or mechanical hazards or irritants may injure or impair
employees through absorption, inhalation, or physical contact.
Gettysburg College shall institute all feasible engineering, work
practice, and administrative controls to eliminate or reduce hazards
below the permissible exposure limits before using PPE to protect
employees against hazards.

Hazard Assessment
Hazard assessment is a process (required by OSHA) of identifying the hazards
associated with a particular task, job title, or work location, and the personal
protective equipment that must be used to ensure exposure does not exceed
OSHA permissible limits. Each hazard assessment shall be performed by the
workplace supervisor and certified in writing.
Appendix A contains Hazard Assessment Certification Forms specific to task,
job title, and work location. Supervisors may choose to use any one or a
combination of these forms.
A copy of each hazard assessment performed shall be maintained at the
workplace and a copy shall be sent to the
IV.
PPE Selection, Use, and Maintenance
A. General PPE Requirements
1.
All personal protective equipment (PPE) shall be of safe
design and construction for the work to be performed, and
shall be maintained in a sanitary and reliable condition.
Where employees provide their own PPE, Gettysburg
College shall assure its adequacy, including proper
maintenance and sanitation.
PPE which ensures a level of protection greater than the
minimum required to protect employees from the hazards
shall be selected.
Careful consideration shall 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 or with adjustable features.
Care should be taken to ensure that the right size is selected.
2.


Dust or flying particles
molten metal
acids/caustics or other chemical liquids
chemical gas or vapors
blood or other potentially infectious body fluids that might
splash, spray, or splatter
potentially injurious light radiation such as that created by
welding arcs or lasers.
PERSCRIPTION EYE PROTECTION PROGRAM – The college
offers prescription eye protection to employees. See written program.
General Requirements
a. Protective eye and face devices shall comply with ANSI
Z87.1—1989, “American National Standard Practice for
Occupational and Education Eye and Face Protection.”
b. Employees who wear prescription lenses (including contact
lenses) shall have their prescription incorporated into the eye
protection or wear eye protection that can be worn over the
prescription lenses without disturbing the proper position of the
prescription lenses or the protective lenses.
c. Eye and face protection shall be distinctly marked to identify
the manufacturer.
d. Emergency eyewash facilities meeting the requirements of 29
CFR 1910.151( c) and ANSI Z358.1 shall be provided in all
areas where employees may be exposed to corrosive materials.
1.
Protection Against Light Radiation
Employees exposed to hazardous light radiation shall use filter
lenses that have a shade number appropriate for the work being
performed. A listing of appropriate shade numbers for various
operations can be found in 29 CFR 1910.133, “Eye and Face
Protection” or Appendix B.
Employees exposed to hazardous light emitted by lasers shall use
safety goggles specifically designed to protect their eyes from the
specific intensity of light produced by the laser. For guidance refer
to 29 CFR 1926.102(b)(2) or the Gettysburg College Laser Safety
Plan.
2.
Protection Against Hazardous Materials Splash

PROTECTION PROGRAM
D.
Head Protection
Gettysburg College shall ensure that each affected employee wears an
appropriate protective helmet when working in areas where there is a
potential for injury from falling objects or when exposed electrical
conductors could contact the head.
Protective helmets shall comply with ANSI Z89.1—1986, “American
National Standard for Personal Protection-Protective Headwear for
Industrial Workers-Requirements.”
To protect employees working below, you must provide chin straps for
the protective helmets worn by employees working at higher
elevations.
1.
Protection Against Impact (Class A, B, and C)
OSHA has three classifications of head protection. All three head
protectors (helmets) are designed to provide protection from
impact and penetration hazards caused by falling objects.
2.
Protection Against Exposed Electrical Conductors (Class A and B)
In addition to providing protection from impact and penetration,
head protection is also available which provides protection from
electrical shock and burn. Class A helmets provide electrical
protection from low-voltage conductors (they are proof tested to
2,200 volts). Class B helmets provide electrical protection from
high-voltage conductors (they are proof tested to 20,000 volts).
E.
Hearing Protection
REFER TO THE GETTYSBURG COLLEGE HEARING
CONSERVATION PROGRAM
F.
Foot Protection
Gettysburg College shall ensure that each affected employee uses
protective footwear when working in areas where there is a danger of
foot injuries. The college maintains a slip resistant shoe program that
provides employees with slip resistant shoes or covers in areas of
wetness such as Dining Services, Housekeeping and Public Safety.
Special Concern Hazards
1.
Protection from Impact and Compression
Employees exposed to impact or compression hazards from objects
falling or rolling onto their toes, or weight pressing on their toes
shall use protective footwear with toe guards. When the dorsum
of the foot is exposed to impact or compression hazards, the
employee shall use metatarsal guards in addition to toe guards.
2.
Protection from Puncture Wounds
Employees exposed to puncture wounds due to sharp objects
piercing the sole shall use protective footwear with metal insoles.
3.
Protection from Electrical Conduction
a.
Electrically conductive footwear
Employees exposed to explosive atmospheres shall use
protective footwear designed to be electrically conductive
to prevent the buildup of static electricity by grounding the
employee.
b.
Electrically nonconductive footwear
Employees exposed to electrical conductors shall use
protective footwear designed to be electrically
nonconductive
4.
Protection from Heat, Molten Metal, and Sparks
Employees exposed to heat, molten metal, and sparks shall use
foundry shoes and leggings.
G.
Hand Protection
Gettysburg College shall select and require employees to use
appropriate hand protection when employees’ hands are exposed to
hazards such as those from skin absorption of harmful substances,
severe cuts or lacerations, severe abrasions, punctures, chemical burns,
thermal burns, and harmful temperature extremes.
There are no ANSI standards for glove selection. Gettysburg College
shall base the selection of the appropriate hand protection on an
evaluation of the performance characteristics of the hand protection
relative to the task(s) to be performed, conditions present, duration of
use, and hazards and potential hazards identified.
1.
Protection from Cuts, Lacerations, Abrasions, Punctures
Employees exposed to cuts, lacerations, abrasions, or
punctures shall use a glove that guards against these hazards.
Choices include:
a.
Fabric gloves
These gloves protect against dirt, slivers, chafing, and
abrasion but do not provide sufficient protection to be
used with rough, sharp, or heavy materials.
b.
Plastic coated fabric gloves
Adding a plastic coating to fabric gloves strengthens
them and offers slip-resistant qualities. These gloves
can be used for handling bricks or wire rope for
example.
c.
Metal mesh gloves and some synthetic gloves.
These gloves provide protection against sharp objects
such as knives.
d.
Leather gloves
These gloves provide protection against rough
objects. They also protect against sparks and
moderate heat.
2.
Protection from Heat, Molten Metal and Sparks
Employees exposed to heat, molten metal, and sparks shall
use a glove that guards against these hazards. Choices
include:
a.
Leather gloves
These gloves provide protection against sparks and
moderate heat. They also protect against rough
objects.
b.
Aluminized gloves
These gloves usually are used for welding, furnace,
and foundry work because they provide reflective and
insulating protection against heat.
c.
Aramid fiber gloves (and other synthetic materials)
These gloves protect against heat and cold. They
may also be cut- and abrasive-resistant.
3.
Protection from Hazardous Materials
Employees exposed to hazardous materials including
chemicals and infectious substances shall use a glove that
guards against these hazards. Many “chemically resistant”
gloves exist. To select an appropriate glove employees
should refer to the material safety data sheet for the
hazardous material to which they are exposed. Additionally,
a glove selection guide can be found in Appendix C of this
document.
H.
Body Protection (arms, legs, torso)
Gettysburg College shall select and require employees to use other
appropriate body protection when parts of the employees’ bodies (other
than those previously covered) are exposed to hazards such as those
from skin absorption of harmful substances, severe cuts or lacerations,
severe abrasions, punctures, chemical burns, thermal burns, and
harmful temperature extremes.
Body protection may include: vests, jackets, chaps, aprons, coveralls,
surgical gowns, full body suits
Like gloves, body protection comes in a variety of materials each
suited to a particular hazard. To select an appropriate body protector
refer to the material safety data sheet for the hazardous material or
contact the Director of Environmental Health & Safety for guidance.
V.
Training
Gettysburg College shall provide training to each employee who is required to
use PPE. Training shall include at least the following:





when PPE is necessary
what PPE is necessary
how to properly don, doff, adjust, and wear PPE
the limitations of PPE
the proper care, maintenance, useful life, and disposal of PPE
Employees must demonstrate an understanding of their training through
testing and/or practice exercises.
When supervisors have reason to believe that an employee who has been
trained does not have the understanding and skill required to use PPE
properly, the employee must be retrained. Circumstances where retraining is
required include, but are not limited to, situations where:



VI.
changes in the workplace render previous training obsolete
changes in the type of PPE to be used render previous training
obsolete
inadequacies in an employee’s knowledge or use of assigned
PPE indicate that the employee has not retained the requisite
understanding and skill (such as not wearing or improperly
wearing PPE)
Program Evaluation
The Associate Director of Environmental and Safety Services reviews the
Respiratory Protection Program to ensure that the provisions of the program are
effectively implemented and it continues to be effective
VII.
Record Keeping
a. Hazard Assessments (Appendix A)
Hazard Assessments shall be retained for each task, job title, or work
location for the duration of PPE use. A copy of each assessment shall
be kept in the department files
b. Training Records
Training records shall be retained for the duration of an employee’s
employment. Training certifications shall be kept in the department
files and a copy shall be sent to the Human Resources Office.

*As a rule of thumb, start with a shade that is too dark to see the weld zone. Then go to a lighter shade which gives
sufficient view
of the weld zone without going below the minimum. In oxyfuel gas welding or cutting where the torch produces a high
yellow light,
it is desirable to use a filter lens that absorbs the yellow or sodium line in the visible light of the (spectrum) operation.
** These values apply where the actual arc is clearly seen. Experience has shown that lighter filters may be used when the
arc is
hidden by the workpiece.
Appendix C
Glove Selection Guide for Protection Against Hazardous Materials
Chemical resistant gloves are an important aspect of protection against hazardous
materials. It is critical that users select the correct glove material based on the chemicals
used and the glove’s permeation data. Inappropriate use of glove material may actually
injure a worker as chemicals can quickly permeate the barrier. Please review the
manufacturer, test data, and glove usage recommendations. Together the information will
allow you to select the best glove material for your application. If you have any
questions on glove selection, contact the chemical hygiene officer at 337-6813 or 7525219.
