Personal Protection Equipment For Safe Applications
Personal Protection Equipment, or PPE, is a critical component of product stewardship. TELONE™ is a highly regulated ag chemical, and as such, the product label outlines in great detail what PPE is required when handling and applying this product.
PPE requirements generally include:
Protective Clothing: This category encompasses coveralls, gloves, and boots composed of materials resistant to chemical penetration. These items aim to create a barrier preventing direct contact between the skin and hazardous chemicals.
Respiratory Protection: Depending on the chemical form and application method, masks or respirators become essential to prevent inhalation of chemical fumes or dust, ensuring respiratory safety.
Eye and Face Protection: Safety goggles or face shields are crucial for safeguarding the eyes and face from potential splashes or exposure to chemical vapors, preventing injuries and ensuring clear vision for the worker.
Approved PPE Products Available at Cardinal Safety
