In non-health-care workplaces, PPE may include a surgical or procedure mask, and in some cases eye protection, such as a face shield or goggles.
Note that face shields do not replace masks or face coverings.
When workers are performing tasks that require them to work within two metres of an unmasked person, conducting a hazard assessment will help you determine which control measures would best be used, such as barriers (for example, Plexiglas, partition, wall) or PPE.
Correct use of PPE should not take the place of other control measures, including physical distancing and handwashing.
Information on PPE and approved standards is available from the Government of Saskatchewan at Appropriate use of PPE.
A list of authorized medical devices that includes approved PPE for uses related to COVID-19 is available on the Government of Canada website.
