Protective Clothing

Protective clothing comes under the umbrella Personal Protective Equipment & Workwear and is designed to ensure the safety of you and others using either protective materials or disposable attire, depending on the application. Protective clothing is a crucial part of daily protection in some workplaces, protecting the user from hazardous material/chemicals, contamination, liquid splashes, dirt, dust, oils, high/low temperatures and heavy equipment.

What is the importance of using protective clothing?

Protective clothing exists to prevent injury and harm to all parts of the body including, head, face, hands, arms, feet and the torso. There are different types of equipment and clothing available depending on the tasks or hazards the wearer will be exposed to.

Protective clothing is not just used on work sites – it’s also used in the hospitality and food industries to prevent cross-contamination and infection.
