Equitable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Protection Workshop
The NIOSH Personal Protective Technology Program will host a virtual workshop to highlight ongoing activities and discuss prominent issues regarding the equitable PPE protections of all United States workers. The workshop will address issues pertinent to underserved PPE user groups related to the equitable PPE use, availability, accessibility, acceptability, or knowledge. Underserved PPE user groups may include workers who are of an atypical size; members of a gender, racial, ethnic, or linguistic minority group; perform nontraditional worker activities; or are members of subdisciplines that are not the primary focus of the current PPE activities within their larger field. Presentations will highlight pertinent issues, ongoing advocacy efforts, research, and knowledge gaps in this area. Additionally, facilitated discussions will be held throughout the workshop to advance the understanding of the most important issues in the field. The event will be held November 8th & 9th 2022, 10am-2pm (EST). For more information, please contact Katherine Yoon (
