What Is PPE?

Personal Protective Equipment is the last line of defense when working around hazardous materials and/or dangerous equipment.

The list includes, but is not limited to, chemical-resistant and cut-resistant gloves, safety glasses and goggles, face shields, hard hats, steel-toed shoes and boots, fire-resistant coveralls, welder’s hoods, fall-protection harnesses, dust masks, earmuffs and plugs, and supplied-air, full-face and escape respirators.

The best approach is to eliminate the hazards or minimize contact with them through engineering controls.

Mixers, loaders and applicators of the Montana Solution, an EPA-registered pesticide, must wear long sleeves and pants, and chemical-resistant gloves, according to the precautionary statements on its label.
