Disposable Clothing

If workers are exposed to various hazards in the course of their daily work it is important to be sure that they are protected on the job.  According to OSHA this is the employer’s responsibility!  Whether a worker is exposed to liquid splashes or spills or dry chemical hazards, disposable protective clothing is an option to offer this protection. The first step in determining the level of protection that is needed is to assess the hazards that the workers are exposed to on the job. This will ensure that the PPE that is chosen will be suitable for the application in which it is going to be used. There are various types of disposable clothing and each type is specific to the type of hazard that is in the workplace.  The substance that a worker is exposed to will determine the level breakthrough time of permeation needed in the clothing.  Manufacturers of protective clothing perform tests to see how chemicals move through the clothing on a molecular level. These tests evaluate the breakthrough time of the fabric.
