This equipment acts as a protective barrier between the worker and various potential hazards, such as falling objects, hazardous chemicals, excessive noise and airborne particles.

                            PPE can encompass a variety of items, from safety helmets to protect the head to safety shoes to protect the feet. The main objective of PPE is to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries, thereby contributing to overall safety in the workplace.

                            Personal protective equipment (PPE) encompasses various categories, from helmets protecting the head to masks covering the face, including reinforced pants to secure the lower body. Each piece of PPE is designed with precise details to provide maximum protection in specific conditions. Users also have the possibility to modify certain aspects of their equipment, such as adding additional filters on masks or adjusting straps on helmets, for a perfect adaptation to their needs and increased comfort.
