Back to Basics: Selecting and Using Personal Protective Equipment

The proper use of PPE is so important that OSHA requires it to protect healthcare workers from exposure to bloodborne pathogens, tuberculosis, and any other potentially infectious disease. In addition, the CDC recommends certain PPE to create a barrier between the healthcare worker and infectious material. By choosing the right personal protective equipment (PPE), and using it at all the appropriate times, healthcare workers can protect themselves and others from harmful organisms.
