Worn to minimize exposure to various hazards. 

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.

Eye protection- prevent dirt and dust floating around the mine from going into the eyes. Also keep chemicals from splashing into the eyes.

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