Personal Protective Equipment in the Past


 
People have used personal protective equipment (PPE) for centuries to protect themselves while they work. For example:

* Medieval knights had armor
* Blacksmiths have always used a leather apron
* Cowboys wear leather chaps 
* Eskimos wear a heavy parka, gloves, and boots
* Firemen wear heavy coats and special helmets

Personal protective equipment today, as in the past, makes working safer and you more productive.
