It may sound like the latest techno-geek gadget, but PPE is the bureaucrat's way of saying Personal Protective Equipment. PPEs are a kind of working wardrobe designed to safeguard the health and physical well-being of working guys and gals on the job.

Which PPEs your workers wear to the jobsite will depend on the potential hazards of the particular job.
