Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 1910 Subpart I provides OSHA’s primary personal protective equipment standards.
Just ordering a bunch of stuff from an equipment catalog and handing it out to your employees is not adequate. There are OSHA and ANSI standards regarding specific hazards and the specific equipment that must be used to mitigate those hazards.
Employers are required to conduct a workplace hazard assessment, provide workers with the necessary personal protective equipment, and require that the workers use and maintain it in a reliable and sanitary condition. OSHA Standards, 1910.132(h) and 1926.95(d) require that employers pay for personal protective equipment used to comply with OSHA standards. (Source: OSHA.gov)
