Historically, Personal Protective Equipment, or PPE, is a category of products designed to guard you from hazardous chemicals, illness or infection, and potential injuries; These conditions can be a result of contact with radiological, chemical, electrical or physical workplace hazards in addition to infectious disease or illness. Since the pandemic and subsequent mask mandates, PPE has grown into an everyday aspect of life. Face masks protect the mouth and nose from bacteria that can be spread when in close contact with infected people while face shields and protective eyewear also protect the eyes. Disposable gloves, beard covers, shoe covers, head protection and disposable gowns for both patients and healthcare givers are common to the medical community.
