DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AB77 Publication ID: Spring 2002 
Title: Employer Payment for Personal Protective Equipment 
Abstract: Generally, OSHA standards require that protective equipment (including personal protective equipment (PPE)) be provided and used when necessary to protect employees from hazards that can cause them injury, illness, or physical harm. In this discussion, OSHA uses the abbreviation "PPE" to cover both personal protective equipment and other protective equipment. The Agency has proposed to revise its PPE standards to clarify who is required to pay for required PPE and under what circumstances. OSHA continues to consider the issue and review the rulemaking docket.
