||This report describes a study carried out to investigate the level of protection offered against liquid penetration by two types of coveralls (type 6 PPE and polycotton workwear). The research also considered whether the choice of garment or the way in which it was used could contribute to the total potential exposure. The performance of the coveralls was investigated under laboratory and field conditions and the extent of enhanced absorption of hazardous substances through the skin was measured in volunteers doing replicated tasks with and without coveralls.
