How do you know if your personal protective equipment (PPE) will protect you or your workers?

To help employers, users of PPE, and others determine which PPE standards must be met by their equipment, NIOSH in collaboration with key partners including the International Safety Equipment Association, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Mine Safety and Health Administration and other members of the PPE Conformity Assessment Working Group developed the PPE-INFO database.

This newly developed database is currently available at https://wwwn.cdc.gov/ppeinfo. NIOSH continues to actively improve the database to address user feedback. If you have comments after visiting the website, please use the comment box below to provide feedback.
