"On-the-job" injuries affect all types of people doing all types of work. Each year over 570,000 workers are injured... at a cost to employers of over one hundred billion dollars annually. However, studies have shown that the great majority of these workplace injuries could have been prevented if proper safety procedures and workplace practices had been followed.
A major part of avoiding accidents and injuries is the use of personal protective equipment. Unfortunately, many people are not mindful of the hazards in their work areas or are not familiar with the personal protective equipment that is available to them. And employees who are aware that personal protective equipment is available often don't know how to select the appropriate equipment for their jobs.
