Abstract The use of protective clothing against chemical hazards is often necessary despite the implementation of collective prevention measures. Safety data sheets for chemicals often mention the need for protective clothing without providing sufficient details. The objective of this sheet is to provide information on the approach to be adopted for selecting suitable clothing for specific chemical hazards and on the use and care of this clothing.
