PPE is special apparel and devices worn to protect pesticide handlers and other workers from contact with pesticides or pesticide residues.
Different types of PPE can include aprons, chemical-resistant gloves, coveralls, waterproof footwear, goggles, and respirators.
Picking the right PPE for the job is a crucial first step. The required PPE is listed on the pesticide label and may differ depending on the activity.
It is critical to read and follow the PPE section on every product label carefully.
