Technician Personal Protective Equipment Guide

By IPVM Team, Published Aug 10, 2022, 10:34am EDT (Info+)

Technicians encounter multiple hazards when running wires and installing security devices. Wearing personal protective equipment, or PPE, helps protect against these hazards and mitigate the chance and severity of injuries. Enforcing a strict PPE policy helps lessen worker's compensation liability for employers and limits time lost to on-the-job injuries.
