It used to be that PPE, or Personal Protective Equipment, was a term reserved for medical professionals or construction workers. However, these days, this term also applies to wearing a face mask to avoid exposure to disease. But is there any other situation in life that you mind find yourself in need of PPE?
Of course! The modern homeowner has access to more power tools than ever before, and these types of machines can pose a threat to your life and limbs. In addition, there are more chemicals on the market than ever before, designed to kill things, help things grow, clean things out, and a lot more. These can also be harmful to your health or the health of your loved ones.
Things like safety glasses, work shoes, earplugs, and gloves can be uncomfortable and take extra time to put on and use, but they just might save your life.
