Firstly It must be emphasised that PPE must only be selected once other methods to eliminate or isolate hazards have been considered.
Normally PPE is used to support other methods of risk control rather than as a stand alone means of protection. For instance a dust mask would be worn when cutting cement board on site; however the primary means of control may be the use of an extractor to remove the dust.
