(b) Inform the affected employee what types of PPE to use;

(i) Work activity evaluated;
(ii) Occupation;
(iii) Date(s) of the hazard assessment; and
(iv) The name of the person performing the hazard assessment.
A hazard assessment conducted according to the trade or occupation of affected employees will be considered to comply with this requirement if it addresses all PPE-related hazards to which employees are exposed in the course of their work activities.

(3) You must ensure that all unsanitary PPE, including all previously used PPE, is cleaned and disinfected before it is reissued.
