Personal Protective Suit

 Refers to protective clothing, helmets, goggles or other equipment that is designed to protect the wearer’s body from injury by physical hazards, electrical hazards, heat, chemicals, particulate matter and infection.  An appropriate personnel protective suit will effectively reduce risk. Different types of protective suits exist for different hazards:
  • Hazmat suit provides protection from chemicals.. Hazmat protective clothing is classified as either Level A, B, C, or D, based upon the degree of protection they provide.
  1. Level A is the highest level of protection and consists of a fully encapsulating suit with a full-facepiece self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) or a supplied air respirator (SAR) with an escape cylinder.
  2. Level B protection requires protective clothing (including SCBA) that provides protection against splashes from a hazardous chemical.
  3. Level C protection includes the same type of protective clothing used for Level B but allows for the use of air-purifying respirators.
  4. Level D protection does not protect against chemical exposure and includes a pair of coveralls or other work-type clothing..
  • Anti –contamination suit, which includes  gloves, shoe covers, and masks, usually in addition to regular clothes, to prevent contamination of the body by radioactive particles. It protects against alpha and beta particles but not against gamma radiation.
