Employers are responsible for providing, replacing, relocating, and paying all costs associated with installing PPE equipment in the workplace. These types of personal protective equipment are usually weatherproof, waterproof, or insulated to protect the user from adverse temperatures or climatic conditions that jeopardize their health and safety.

Accidents in the form of skin injuries often occur due to skin contact with biological, physical, chemical, and mechanical damage. This is why skin protection products such as face shields, gloves, safety shoes, facemasks, and jackets serve as a barrier between the skin and various endogenous substances. 

Respirators protect the user from polluted air and are of two types, namely air-purifying respirators and air-supplied respirators. The function filters unwanted chemicals and gases from the air.
