Anyone who has dealt with workplace safety knows that PPE is the last line of defense. Here's a good reference from OSHA:

Using personal protective equipment is often
essential, but it is generally the last line of
defense after engineering controls, work practices,
and administrative controls. Engineering
controls involve physically changing a machine
or work environment. Administrative controls
involve changing how or when workers do
their jobs, such as scheduling work and rotating
workers to reduce exposures. Work practices
involve training workers how to perform
tasks in ways that reduce their exposure to
workplace hazards.
