Personal protective equipment (PPE) is very important for engineers. It is the devices that workers use in the workplace or industry to protect them for being injured. PPE can protect our face, eyes, head, ears, feet, arms, hands, respiratory system and whole our body. Every part of our body is very important and we cannot replace is with others. Example of PPE is face shields,googles, safety glasses, safety helmet, safety shoes, gloves, vests, earplugs, respirators andearmuffs.

There are disadvantages if PPE is used as the first option without reducing hazard atsources. First, it is risk to workers if PPE fails and failure not detected. For example, we did notrealize that our goggles is not in a good condition to be use anymore because it been use for along time so it might break without our notification. Beside that, PPE is also danger if workers are over confidence with it.
