Blog / How to Choose the Right Personal Protective Coverall

June 26, 2023

What is PPE?

Personal protective Equipment (PPE) includes things like safety glasses, shoe covers and protective coveralls that are used to prevent personal accidents from hazards. Coveralls protect your body when working with paint, during construction, mold removal, disaster cleanup, and other situations with harmful substances.

These various work environments require different levels of protection, ranging from respirators or earplugs and eye protection to abrasion shielding. Knowing where to start when it comes to choosing the right coverall can be overwhelming and confusing. With all the occupational safety options on the market, it’s easy to get lost in all the information.

What to Consider

Choosing the right protective coverall is just like picking the right glasses or mask. Think about where you’ll use it and what you need it for. It’s important to do a risk analysis before deciding which options may be right for you. By asking yourself the following questions, it will help simplify the selection process.

  • What type of containments, chemicals or liquids will be on the job?
  • Is it important for the coverall to be impenetrable?
  • Is full coverage needed? Hood? Boots?
  • What temperature or climate will you be working in? Is breathability important to reduce heat stress?

When exploring how to choose the right personal protective coverall, it may seem obvious, but it’s important to ensure you’re wearing the correct size for the best protection possible. Check packaging and websites for size charts to determine the best fit.
