Due to the growing focus on industrial safety, more and more workers now wear protective clothing. While wearing protective clothing is important, choosing the correct product is more important. Suitable protective clothing not only protects workers from hazardous environments, but also provides optimal comfort. On the contrary, unsuitable PPE may be the cause of industrial accidents and injuries.
To choose appropriate clothing, you must firstly identify potential risks or hazards in the working environment. When there are multiple hazards in the workplace, assess the equivalent protection level required so that protective clothing can keep workers safe effectively. Common hazards include harmful particles, liquids and gases. They may contact the skin through different methods, such as jet, spray, splash or soaking. When there is, for example, toxic liquid in the workplace, workers need to wear Type 3 or Type 4 protective clothing to protect themselves from getting hurt.
“Hope for the best, plan for the worst”
“A jury recently ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million in damages to a plaintiff who alleged that his cancer was the result of using Roundup, the company’s popular herbicide.” This case indicates that if the environment involves high risks of chemicals, buyers should consider raising the protection level of protective clothing. When spraying pesticides, wearing protective clothing may not provide enough protection to the worker; workers should wear protective clothing that passes DIN32781 protecting against pesticides.
