PPE | Personal Protective Equipment
PPE, also known as Personal Protective Equipment, refers to the protective gear that’s worn over the body in hazardous work environments. The types of PPE used will depend on the work conditions employees could be exposed to, such as physical, chemical, biological, electrical hazards, and more. PPE includes a large selection of gear, such as gas masks, respirator masks, face masks, disposable gloves, disposable coveralls, face shields, hard hats, disinfectant spray, hand sanitizer, and much more.
Infection Control PPE
In medical settings, such as clinical labs, hospitals, doctors’ offices, or emergency vehicles, the risk of exposure to bacteria, bodily fluids, and cross-contamination runs high. In order to minimize exposure to these hazards, medical professionals and first responders must wear the proper protective equipment and keep their workstations sanitized.
The Safetec Universal Protection Kit is a perfect way to keep first responders protected at a scene where bodily fluids are present. This PPE kit has all the essentials including medical gloves, disinfectant wipes, an eyeshield, a protective apron, and more. This protective kit also meets OSHA and CDC standards for bloodborne pathogens and includes supplies for area clean-up as well.
The AlphaTec Ansell Microchem Coveralls provide superior breathable microporous laminate technology and type ⅚ protection.

It’s also comfortable to wear and features moisture vapor permeable fabric to help reduce the risk of heat stress.
Physical Safety PPE
Any employee who regularly works around heavy machinery, construction, etcetera is at high risk for physical injury. From falling objects to flying projectiles, these injuries could be proven fatal. Only by wearing the right safety gear can these situations be avoided.
