The most important defense employees have when working with a hazardous substance is the personal protective equipment (PPE) and chemical protective clothing (CPC) they wear. Being overexposed to chemicals may cause severe illness and injury, including death.

Protective equipment and clothing are designed to help shield, isolate, or otherwise protect employees from chemical, physical, and biological hazards when engineering and work practice controls alone are not protective enough. However, protective gear and safety clothing can also pose hazards, such as heat stress and impaired vision. It's extremely important for employees to be well informed and able to analyze which safety gear or clothes would be best in a situation.

This HAZWOPER training course is designed to inform learners of the different types of PPE and CPC, including their uses and limitations, levels of protection, how to don and doff the equipment, and the importance of proper storage, inspection, and maintenance.
