uvex disposable coveralls and protective clothing

Protected at work

Workers who are exposed to hazardous chemicals or biological substances on an almost daily basis during the course of their work require first-class protection that is specially designed to cope with the conditions and potentially hazardous substances the wearer may be exposed to. The type of hazardous substance, as well as the degree and duration of exposure, are the key factors that determine which protective clothing is required. However, the proper use of the different types of disposable coveralls and the technology behind them – particularly the methods used to put on and remove the garments – is also of critical importance. Read on to find out all you need to know about disposable coveralls.

Putting on and removing disposable coveralls

To ensure that your disposable coveralls deliver their full protective effect, it is important to put them on and take them off correctly. Certain steps must be performed in a defined order, and others may require the help of an assistant. We explain the steps to follow below.

Selecting the right chemical protection clothing

In order to select appropriate chemical protection clothing for a specific application within your business, it is important to have your coveralls tested by a trained safety officer.
