You have probably heard the acronym PPE a lot in recent days, which stands for Personal Protective Equipment, but it should have been in your vocabulary even before the current pandemic, especially as a homeowner. Just like masks and gloves can protect you against a virus, there are many different types of PPE that will protect you as you do work around your home.
While PPE often makes your work more complicated and uncomfortable, it can protect your vital body parts, especially so when you use any type of powered equipment.
It is important when wearing PPE that you realize that it is important to stop working if you for any reason need to take your PPE off. So many accidents happen when someone takes off their PPE to get a better grip or to be able to see something better. Instead of taking chances. Get a closer look or change your grip without the PPE on, but after that, put them back on before you go to work.
