Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The JSA (5.2) identifies hazards that necessitate the use of PPE. Inspection personnel should know when personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary, what PPE is needed, and how PPE is to be properly used, including its limitations. Typically, PPE for pipeline construction includes but is not limited to approved eye, head, foot, hand, and hearing protection; safety apparel; respiratory devices; and various protective shields.

Eye Protection
Eye protection includes safety glasses, safety glasses with side shields, goggles, face shields, and welding goggles and hoods. The type of eye protection required will depend on the hazard encountered.

Head Protection
Generally, head protection (approved hard hats) is required when injury could occur from impact or electrical shock. Normally, hard hats are worn at all times on every construction site or when otherwise dictated by owner/operator and contractor requirements.

Foot Protection
Approved foot protection is also a standard requirement on construction sites. This protection includes boots or shoes of leather or leather-type construction that cover the entire foot along with safety toes.

Hand Protection
Approved gloves should be worn depending on tasks involved

Hearing Protection
Hearing protection is used when the work environment noise level exceeds 85 dbA over an 8-hour period based a noise level survey. This protection includes ear plugs or ear covers with suitable noise reduction factors.

Wearing Apparel
Approved clothing identified in the JSA or depending on the tasks involved that protects against work hazards and the environment are required. For example, apparel could minimally include: fire retardant clothing, chemical resistant suits, leather for metal spark protection, etc.

Respiratory Protection
This protection involves proper use of air-purifying respirators, air-supplied respirators, or self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). The type of respirator depends on the type of hazard encountered. Users of this equipment should have knowledge of owner/operator and contractor requirements and be trained in its use, especially mask fit test and the operation of the devices.
