It comes a surprise to many that PPE – personal protective equipment – is ranked one of the least effective controls for managing a safety risk. Understanding PPE in the context of the hierarchy of controls helps workers implement the full range of safety measures.

It is part of the Toolbox Talks series that aims to raise awareness of some of the safety processes that exist in the workplace and clarify commonly used terms for the everyday worker.
