Just a few short years ago, the term “PPE” was not nearly as common as it is today. It used to call to mind the relatively few items that a construction worker might put on, like a hard hat and safety boots. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has thrust the words “Personal Protective Equipment” into the limelight and has included face masks, face shields, latex gloves, and more.

Even with this seemingly expanded definition, PPE is often thought of as something for use at the workplace, or in public. Have you ever thought, though, that it might be a good idea to wear PPE at home? The day-to-day maintenance tasks and more extensive projects you do around your own home carry the same level of risk as they would if they were being done at a workplace. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to prevent the hazard of accidents, injuries, and even death that are posed on your own property?
