Assessment of the workplace is beneficial in determining the areas in which people will need to wear protective clothing. This assessment can be done inter-company or carried out by a private safety assessment firm.
The workplace assessment should identify areas where employees are at risk for contamination from industrial hazards, as well as identify what the particular hazard would be. The benefit of this information is it can be used to discover areas where protective clothing should be worn.
