ENROLL FOR THIS COURSE

 

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is specialized clothing worn by healthcare personnel (HCP) for protection against infectious materials. PPE is a safety element used in healthcare delivery that relies on correct and consistent use by HCP. Because of this, it is less effective than replacement or removal of hazards, engineering controls, and administrative controls.

 

Course information
