How to Wear Coveralls
It is important that coveralls are worn correctly as, if worn improperly, they are not an effective form of protection against workplace hazards. The steps below outline the correct way to wear coverall suits to ensure optimal performance.
- Closely inspect the suit to ensure no defects or visible damage such as tears or punctures are present. Damaged protective coveralls should not be worn, and should be replaced.
- Remove any unnecessary jewellery that could catch on the coverall fabric and cause damage. E.g. watches
- Don the suit, ensuring it comfortably covers the wrists and ankles. If a hooded coverall, ensure the hood is a snug fit over the head.
- Practice the movement you will be performing in the suit to ensure movement is not restricted in any way and that the coverall is the correct size. It is a good idea to choose one size larger than usual to avoid the possibility of accidental tears as a result of restrictive clothing.
- Use glove connectors or tape to ensure loose arm and leg cuffs are secured over the top of gloves and footwear.
- Take care within the working area and be aware of immediate surroundings so as to prevent any damage occurring to the garment that could reduce its effectiveness, such as around sharp edges or hot surfaces.
How to Remove Coveralls
Coveralls and any other PPE must not be removed while working in the hazardous area. Hazmat suits or protective clothing may need decontaminating once the job has been completed, through procedures such as a decontamination shower, before doffing. When it is safe to do so, the protective gear should be removed slowly and cautiously so as not to contaminate the wearer or surroundings. Rolling the work coveralls outwards down and touching only the inside of the suit is the best way to avoid contamination. Disposable coveralls should not be cleaned in an attempt to reuse. Proper disposal is necessary, ensuring no contaminated PPE clothing is left in the work area.
