PPE stands for personal protective equipment.
PPE includes items such as Facemasks, safety helmets, gloves, eye protection and high-visibility clothing - all these PPE items are wearable and designed to keep people safe.
Why is PPE so important?
Personal protective equipment helps reduce the risk of people from coming into harm in the workplace or during any activity.
Some key workers like NHS staff are wearing PPE, such as facemasks, face visors, disposable gloves, aprons, hair nets, overshoes and gowns.
PPE is so important because these items help to stop the spread of coronavirus - if they are used in the correct way it can certainly help save lives.
Personal protective equipment stops people coming into contact with tiny amounts of the virus or other bacteria in the air when people cough or sneeze, items of disposable clothing such as nitrile gloves can also protect against residue on skin or surfaces that may be contaminated.
These products likewise diminish the danger of giving the infection to another by covering the mouth, nose and hands.
