08 Personal Protective Equipment Savvy Cleaner Training Angela Brown

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

The thing I love about this course is not the PPE itself, but the formula behind choosing the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for every job.

Purpose of PPE - Personal Protective Equipment

Imagine a cleaning business with no call-outs from employees due to mystery illnesses, or on the job injuries. Do you know how much money you could save in hospital bills, cancellations and lost revenues? The number is in the thousands.

In this course we cover SOP (Standard Operating Procedures) for assessing risks for upcoming jobs. This helps us train for, and prevent, OJI (On the Job Injuries.) We anticipate worst case scenarios and then create solutions to prevent them from ever happening.

In this course we create good habits that will have your team members all playing from the same personal protective rule book.

And then – only then – does the personal protective equipment come into place. 

No more guesswork. No wasting money on PPE that is not needed for the job, or buying the wrong kind of PPE that won’t actually protect you.

In This Course We Cover:

  • Face Masks & Face Shields
  • Safety Glasses and Goggles
  • Hazmat Suits
  • Gloves

Heck we even talk about non-PPE like:

  • Aprons
  • Shoes
  • Shoe Covers

If your business needs it – you’ll find answers here.

“Personal Protective Equipment is part of every system you will ever create.” – Angela Brown

With PPE you’re creating systems that protect your company’s biggest assets – you and your employees.

It’s Safety First, with happy clients, healthy employees and robust profits.

Aprons & Other Non-PPE

Personal Protective Equipment, Aprons and Other Non-PPE, Savvy Cleaner Training

Aprons, shoes, and other Non-PPE are covered here because they are essential to getting the job done and are mandatory wearables for some cleaning companies.

What makes them mandatory is your personal decision as a business owner, and will you be providing them for your employees?

What makes them Non-PPE is that they don’t protect you from OPIM and chemical hazards – though they may offer protection in a form of their own.

In This Section, We Will Cover: 

  • Bib Aprons
  • Utility Aprons
  • Support Shoes
  • Shoe Covers
