Disposable Protective Clothing
Is disposable plastic clothing what I need for my workforce?
Protective clothing is used across a range of different industries to protect workers from hazardous conditions, to protect them from substances and to make them visible, amongst other functions. Unlike heavy-duty PPE, disposable PPE clothing offers a solution for those who may be constantly working with contaminants or those that must maintain sterile conditions at work. Some examples of places where disposable PPE include: hospitals, building sites, working with hazardous substances, food production and science labs.
Within these conditions, PPE can function to:
- Keep contaminants off workers' skin.
- Prevent contamination from a product.
- Help with maintaining sterile conditions.
So the first step to knowing if disposable PPE is right for your workers is to consider your working environment and what key functions you'll need your PPE to fulfil.
Next up is considering the following questions: :
- Is the material appropriate for the conditions at the workplace?
- Is it a good fit?
- What are the physical requirements and the visibility and communication requirements on the job?
- Will you have to wear clothing with other types of PPE? If yes, are they compatible?
Being able to answer these questions will get you one step closer to finding the perfect clothing for your workers.
