Personal Protective Equipment is defined as any material or device worn to protect a worker from exposure to, or contact with, any harmful substance or form of energy.

All YG employees engaged in work are required to use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) as required by the task being performed and/or the tools being used to perform the work.

The documents as shown in the blue box to the right outline the general principles and specific guidelines of the mitigation of hazards through the use of appropriate personal protective equipment.
