Hygiene

Changing Clothes

Wear coveralls to keep dust off your clothes.

Clean work clothes

In order to protect yourself as well as those around you, including your family, you must regularly wash up and remove your contaminated clothing in the work area. No matter how careful you are, you will get some hazardous materials on your clothing and skin.

Blowing it off with compressed air is the wrong thing to do unless you want to expose everyone in the shop.

Instead remove your protective clothing and leave it in the work area before going into offices, break rooms or restrooms - or going home.

Wash your hands

Always wash your hands, arms and face thoroughly with soap and water when you are finished handling hazardous materials, when using the restroom, before coffee breaks and lunch, and before heading home.

This will make sure you don't accidentally eat or drink things like isocyanate or lead, and it will help protect those around you.

Don't bring it home!

Wash up and change out of your work clothes before heading home at the end of the day - you don't want to bring this home to your children!
