The purpose of protective clothing and equipment is to shield or isolate individuals from the chemical, physical, and biological hazards that may be encountered during operations. It is not always apparent when exposure occurs. Many chemicals pose invisible hazards and offer no warning.
It is important that protective clothing users realize that no single combination of protective equipment and clothing is capable of protecting you against all hazards. Thus protective clothing should be used in conjunction with other protective methods. For example, engineering or administrative controls to limit chemical contact with personnel should always be considered as an alternative measure for preventing chemical exposure. The use of protective clothing can itself create significant wearer hazards, such as heat stress, physical and psychological stress, in addition to impaired vision, mobility, and communication. In general, the greater the level of chemical protective clothing, the greater the associated risks. For any given situation, equipment and clothing should be selected that provide an adequate level of protection. Over protection as well as under-protection can be hazardous and should be avoided.g properties.A protective suit is an umbrella term for any suit or clothing which protects the wearer.
