Cal/OSHA CCR 3380, Personal Protective Devices, requires that employers assess the workplace to determine if hazards are present, or are likely to be present, which necessitate the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).  Agencies must document this process through a written certification.


Found in the EIA Best Practices Library, the Guidance Document is a helpful resource to become familiar with the details of the regulation and the assessment.


The supplementary Sample Form is intended to be used for the required written certification. On it, employers document the determination if the hazard(s) can/cannot be eliminated without the use of PPE. If the answer is ‘no,’ then the required PPE is identified. The form includes eye and face, head, hand, foot, leg, body, fall, respiratory, and hearing protection.
