Personal Protective Equipment

Personal protective equipment is an essential way to protect yourself from the dangers of chemicals.
You'll find on the label or safety data sheet (SDS) exactly what kinds of clothing, gloves, and coverings you'll need to keep yourself safe. Also, your work unit's policies and procedures will include information about necessary personal protective equipment and engineering controls that will reduce your exposure to hazardous chemicals.
At a minimum, chemical safety goggles and rubber or nitrile gloves (not necessarily utility gloves) are necessary parts of your personal protective equipment when working with chemical compounds.
