  1. Chemical Protection

  2. General requirements for protective clothing • Proper use and maintenance • Capabilities and limitations • Consequences of not using protective clothing 1a

  3. General requirements for protective clothing • Human factors influencing clothing performance • Inspecting, donning, doffing, fitting clothing • Decontamination, cleaning, maintenance, repair 1b

  4. General requirements for protective clothing • Emergency procedures and self-rescue in the event of clothing failure • Buddy system 1c

  5. Match the protection to the hazard 2a

  6. Combinations of the following can form a complete protective clothing ensemble: • Protective suit, coveralls, hoods, gloves, or boots • Respiratory equipment 2b

  7. Combinations of the following can form a complete protective clothing ensemble: • Cooling system • Ice vest • Air circulation • Water circulation 2c

  8. Combinations of the following can form a complete protective clothing ensemble: • Communications devices • Head, eye, ear protection • Inner garment 2d

  9. Combinations of the following can form a complete protective clothing ensemble: • Outer garment • Overgloves • Overboots • Splash cover 2e

  10. Each ensemble must be tailored to the specific hazards; consider these factors: • Chemical hazards • Physical environment • Duration of exposure 2f

  11. Each ensemble must be tailored to the specific hazards; consider these factors: • Protective clothing or equipment available • Some clothing may be decontaminated and reused; others may not 2g

  12. Each ensemble must be tailored to the specific hazards; consider these factors: • Base selection of clothing on material chemical resistance • Chemical hazard permeation • Degradation • Penetration 2h

  13. Inspection 3a

  14. Inspect equipment: • When it is received from the factory or distributor • When it is selected for a particular chemical operation 3b

  15. Inspect equipment: • During storage • When questions arise as to the appropriateness of equipment • When problems are discovered with the equipment 3c

  16. Inspection • After training, and before maintenance • Be sure to maintain proper records of all inspections 3d

  17. Storage • Proper storage prevents damage or malfunction of equipment due to: • Exposure to dust • Moisture • Sunlight • Damaging chemicals • Extreme temperatures • Impact 4a

  18. Storage • Store potentially contaminated clothing separate from street clothing or unused protective clothing • Store potentially contaminated clothing in well-ventilated areas 4b

  19. Storage • Maintain good air flow around each item • Store clothing and gloves by design and material • Fold or hang protective clothing according to manufacturer instructions 4c

  20. Decontamination • Protects workers from hazardous substances that may contaminate and permeate: • Protective clothing • Respiratory equipment • Tools • Vehicles • Other equipment 5a

  21. Decontamination • Minimizes transfer of harmful materials into clean areas • Helps prevent mixing of incompatible chemicals 5b

  22. Decontamination • Protects the community by preventing uncontrolled transportation of contaminants from the site 5c
