The safety of personal protection equipment used in industry is reviewed. Types and uses of head, face and eye, hand, foot and whole body protection equipment are discussed. The potential hazards associated with poor maintenance or improper use of protection equipment is discussed. The numbers and percent of different types of facilities that required personal protective devices are listed. The accident statistics in which these devices may have been a factor are presented. The existing codes and regulations for personal protective equipment usage are presented. The authors recommend that further study be undertaken on the lack of or improper usage of protection devices, and on the performance of existing safety equipment.
