Here's what the items in the PPE trinity do

Hard hats: Because of the thick plastic shell and support structures, hard hats can protect your employees' heads from impact. 
Safety gloves: Anytime your employees work with hand tools they need to wear their safety gloves. This because they can stop a tool or piece of equipment from cutting into their hands.
Safety boots: Your employees' feet can suffer injuries as easily as their hands. Their boots act as a barrier between them and any biohazard or chemicals around them. They also protect their feet from being crushed or slipping accidents.
