Personal protective equipment (PPE) should be the last resort for mitigating workplace hazards per the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) Hierarchy of Controls, but for many workers, it is top of mind because it’s essentially their “uniform” for the day’s work. Because of this reliance on PPE, the market is flooded with models in all shapes, sizes, colors, and features, so it’s important to have tools to evaluate what’s available. First and foremost, PPE should protect the worker, but there are extra features and even best practices to be aware of when making purchasing decisions.
