By now, most of us are probably aware that PPE stands for Personal Protective Equipment, and it definitely plays a major role in the health and welfare of all of us, but there is PPE that you as a homeowner should use when you work around your home as well.
You might not think about it, but there are many things that you do when maintaining your home that could lead to serious injury or even death.
Climbing a ladder, using pesticides, using power tools and many other activities have certain risks involved, and it is important that you wear the proper PPE for the job at hand. If you do get the PPE that is necessary for the job, it is also very important to keep it on for the duration of the job. Many accidents happen when someone decides that they need to take off their PPE to get a better grip on something or to see better. If you need to, take a short break to get out of the PPE or adjusting it to get it better situated, just make sure that you don it again when you resume the work. It could literally save your life.
