October 23, 2009, Newsletter Issue #190: A Disadvantage of Protective Clothing

Tip of the Week

One of the major disadvantages of wearing protective clothing is the inability to have data or statistics on the actual level of safety the protective clothing provides.

This is due to fact that protective clothing is tested within laboratories under precise and easily repeated conditions. However, when the protective clothing is worn during the workplace, other factors can affect the level of protection the clothing provides.

Even though this disadvantage exists, this is no incentive to stop wearing protective clothing because the level of protection is decreased compared to the test conditions in the laboratory in which the clothing was subjected to.
