Abstract This review makes a distinction between light (for chemicals in free state) and heavy protection (chemicals under pressure): rubber apron and gloves in the first case; overalls with plastic hood in the second, with (in both cases) helmet, face shield and boots. Considerations and protection against dust (light overalls of paper or vinyl, with dust mask and cap), respiratory protection (air-purifying filter respirators, supplied-air respirators) and protection against heat. Advice is given in each case for the choice and use of equipment according to the hazard involved.
