It is essential to be equipped with the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) when dealing with hazardous materials. Coveralls are a one-piece, loose-fitting suit that offer protection against outside contaminants over a large area of the body. Coveralls are essentially a full body protection suit, generally worn over the top of personal clothing, and can protect workers against a number of hazards, including hazards of a chemical, mechanical, thermal or biological nature.

Globally, there are many different levels of protection used in working environments, but it is important to understand what levels of protection are available in terms of best practice internationally, and the standards to which the product protects. In European standards, the different levels of protection have been defined in terms of types. Types relate to different groups of applications with similar properties-for example, whether they involve protection against dusts, liquids, or gasses, and whether the liquid is in a strong spray or light splash form. The standards identify six Types to cover all eventualities -Type 1, Type 2 and so on, down to Type 6. In general terms Type 6 is the lowest protection level, namely “reduced liquid spray protection”.
With the various levels of protection available, it is important to conduct some research before purchasing safety clothing because different industries have different requirements. By taking the various standards and factors into account, safety clothing can be designed so that it protects employees (or those affected by the activity) from the risks associated with the work activity. Hazards that may require safety coveralls include: temperature extremes; adverse weather; chemical or metal splash; spray from pressure leaks or spray guns; impact or penetration; contaminated dust; excessive wear or entanglement of own clothing.
