The Center For Disease Control (CDC) can be used as an example of a successful “Personal Protective Equipment Program.” The CDC is responsible for testing the effects of hazardous chemicals on the body, and looking for cures for infections and other pathogens.
The CDC's Protective Equipment Program is divided into two parts – a personal protective equipment program for the head, neck, and extremities, and another part of the protective equipment program for the auditory and respiratory system.
The Federal government's “Office of Health and Safety” (OHS) has been awarded the honor of administering the CDC's “Personal Protective Equipment Program." The OHS is diligent in updating, reviewing, and monitoring the protective equipment program due to the safety risks involved.
