START YOUR HEAVY EQUIPMENT TRAINING

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for Heavy Equipment Operation

To get the job done in construction, you need the right equipment. Aside from the heavy equipment itself, it is vital that you wear the right personal protective equipment, or PPE. PPE is the last line of defense between worksite hazards and your body.

Construction and other professions that rely on heavy equipment can be dangerous jobs. That’s why personal protective equipment in heavy equipment training is such a crucial topic. It’s easier to pick up good PPE habits when you learn how to wear it correctly early on. As a student at the Heavy Equipment Colleges of America, you’ll learn the right way to gear up for the job so you do it right every time.

Protective Eyewear
Your eyes make it possible to see what you’re doing at the helm of heavy equipment, which is why it’s important to protect them. Wearing safety glasses will keep them free of potential hazards.

Ear Protection
Heavy equipment tends to be really loud when it’s running. Covering your ears with headphones helps prevent hearing loss caused by prolonged exposure to the loud noise.

Hard Hat
OSHA requires everyone at construction sites to wear hard hats at all times. This includes heavy equipment operators. They help protect your head from falling objects.

Gloves
A snug-fitting pair of heavy-duty work gloves will help protect your hands from the elements and other worksite dangers.

Boots
Much like gloves protect your hands at the construction site, a good pair of steel-toed work boots will protect your feet. The specialty toe helps prevent your toes from getting crushed.
