Protective clothing protects the entire body with possible contact with chemicals. However, it also protects the product against contamination, for example during painting work or in the pharmaceutical field or in the laboratory.
Anyone who handles, uses or "only" stores hazardous substances cannot avoid it: the risk assessment. For 25 years it has been the central element in occupational health and safety. In our FAQs we have put together the answers to the most frequently asked questions on the subject of "Risk assessment for hazardous substances".
Explosion protection can quickly become an issue in all industries: Many hazardous substances that are handled on a daily basis harbour a corresponding hazard potential. Here you can find out what you need to know to get started with explosion protection.
Fighting chaos: With the 5S method to more occupational safety
The 5S method creates order and cleanliness in the workplace and thereby also increases occupational safety. Find out how disorder affects operational safety and how the 5S method helps you to reduce accident risks in our practical guide.
Stumbling, slipping, falling: so-called SRS accidents are the perennial favorite in accident statistics. According to a report by the German Social Accident Insurance (DGUV), one in 5 workplace accidents is due to slippery floors and tripping hazards. We present 5 measures that help to effectively prevent SRS accidents.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) protects the wearer from injuries, hazardous substances, dirt and other conceivable external influences. Depending on the area of application and the material used, the hazard potential and thus the necessary protective clothing varies.
Simple measures such as head bonnets,disposable gowns and overshoes are mainly intended to keep dirt out, but do not protect against chemicals or other liquids. They are therefore assigned to PPE categories I+II.
Chemical protective suits belong to PPE category III, where a high risk to workers is assumed. They allow the wearer to work even in chemically contaminated environments. If a chemical protective suit is used, the eyes and mouth should also be protected by protective goggles and breathing mask.
In addition, you can also find original Guttasyn aprons in our shop, which provide effective protection against chemicals and moisture.
However, protective clothing not only protects the employees, but also the manufactured products. A protective bonnet is also used when the material used must not be contaminated by accidentally falling hair or skin flakes.
What do I have to look out for in a protective suit?
It must be ensured that the protective suit is resistant to the materials used. The information can be found on the resistance list. Other states of aggregation and strong temperature fluctuations must also be taken into account. At high temperatures in the working area, additional cooling may be necessary in the protective overall so that the wearer does not overheat. This can be done by cooling waistcoats or a ventilation system in the suit.
Finally, care must be taken during an operation to ensure that the suit is not damaged by sharp-edged objects and that the wearer is not contaminated. Therefore, always check the integrity of the suit before and after wearing it.
