Yellow foam ear plugs

Personal Protection Equipment

ear plugsIt benefits everyone

Like athletes on the football field, you must also wear protection when doing your job. These items are designed to keep your body safe and protected from hazards that you may encounter. Our personal protective equipment (PPE) includes ear plugs, work boots, hat and safety goggles. At times, we may also require you to wear a hard hat, safety vest and/or chaps.

Here are some recommendations for effectively using PPE:

  • Be like Celbin - WEAR YOUR SAFETY GOGGLES!

    Always wear PPE—even if you think it’s a nuisance to put on or feels a little bulky.

  • Make sure the equipment fits properly and does not cause you any pain. If it does, alert your supervisor to get it refitted or to have the equipment adjusted.
  • Attend any PPE training sessions and properly care for and clean your PPE.

Obtain new PPE if something is damaged or worn. Damaged equipment will not provide needed protection. See your manager if you need replacements.

Equipo de Protección Personal

Estos artículos están diseñados para mantener su cuerpo seguro y protegido de los peligros que usted puede encontrar. Nuestro equipo de protección personal (PPE) incluye tapones para los oídos, botas de trabajo, sombrero y gafas de seguridad. A veces, también podemos requerirle que use un casco, chaleco de seguridad y / o chaps.

A continuación se presentan algunas recomendaciones para usar con eficacia el
PPE:

  • Ser como Celbin - LLEVE SUS GAFAS DE SEGURIDAD!

    Siempre use PPE-incluso si usted piensa que es una molestia para ponerse o se
    siente un poco voluminoso.

  • Asegúrese de que el equipo se ajuste correctamente y no le cause ningún dolor.
    Si lo hace, avise a su supervisor para que lo vuelva a instalar o para que el equipo se ajuste.
  • Asista a cualquier sesión de entrenamiento de PPE y cuide apropiadamente y limpie su PPE.

Obtenga un nuevo EPP si algo está dañado o desgastado. El equipo dañado no proporcionará la protección necesaria. Consulte a su gerente si necesita reemplazos.
