The interviewer would like to know if the safety gear (PPE: Personal Protective Equipment) you are accustomed to working in is similar to what they are currently using. Briefly give a list to the hiring manager of the safety gear you currently work in, and what you are most familiar with.
"I currently wear a variety of safety gear including steel-toed work boots, a hard hat, protective glasses, and fire resistant coveralls. Are there any other forms of PPE that I should be familiar with?"
"I have been taught the importance of wearing personal protective equipment. I will come prepared with my steel-toed work boots, hard hat, fire resistant coveralls, and anything else you may require of me."
"I am familiar with it all! It's incredibly important to be prepared and safe on the job site and I would never take shortcuts when it comes to the protective gear that I wear. I have my own PPE and will come ready to work, on day one."
