Protective Clothing

Keep yourself safe from chemical, biological and environmental hazards by wearing protective clothing on the job.


Evaluate the hazards in the workplace to choose the best type of protective clothing for your workers.  Protective Clothing will create a barrier of protection for workers in occupations where they are exposed to materials such as chemicals, dust, dirt, body fluids, biohazards and mold.  The first step to choose the right protection for your workforce is to evaluate the hazards that workers are exposed to on the job.
