What Does Chemical Protective Clothing Mean?
Chemical protective clothing is workplace protective clothing used to protect the worker from exposure to chemicals. It should not be viewed as a replacement for proper handling and safety engineering methods. OSHA safety data sheets use the phrase "wear impermeable or impervious" clothing. However, no material will remain permanently impervious to a chemical. The focus should be on choosing protective clothing that adequately protects from the hazards of a specific job and meets the specific tasks of a job.
