Personal Protective Technology Program
The Personal Protective Technology (PPT) Program is a world leader in keeping American workers safe through PPT research, standards development, respirator conformity assessment, public outreach, and information dissemination. Personal Protective Technologies include respirators, protective clothing, gloves, eye, fall and hearing protection, hard hats, and sensors to detect hazardous substances.
The PPE-Info Database serves as a compendium of Federal regulations and consensus standards for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) that allow users to search for standards based on PPE type or the type of hazards to which a worker is exposed.
Certified Equipment List (CEL)
The certified equipment list is a tool to help respirator users, safety managers, industrial hygienists, and others determine if the respirator they are using is NIOSH-approved, help select the appropriate respirator for hazards they are exposed to, and what manufacturers produce units meeting the NIOSH standards.
