Examples of PPE include gloves, steel-toed footwear, eye protection, protective hearing devices (earplugs, muffs), hard hats, respirators and reflective clothing.
Gloves – prevent scrapes and abrasions.

Footwear- should be water proof and a puncture proof sole.

Protective hearing devices- to prevent irreversible hearing loss from loud machines, tools and vehicles miners use
