Personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE", is equipment worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace illnesses and injuries.

These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with physical, electrical, chemical, radiological, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Personal protective equipment may include items such as gloves, safety glasses, shoes/boots, earplugs or muffs, hard hats, respirators, vests, coveralls, and full body suits.
