The protective function of any chemical protective suit is limited, and no chemical protective suit can withstand all chemicals. Good protective clothing can protect as many chemicals as possible. In addition, chemical imitation protective clothing must be used together with other protective equipment to give full play to its protective performance. If people wearing protective clothing do not wear supporting equipment (such as gloves and hoods), they may suffer unnecessary upper injuries.
In addition, before entering the hazardous environment, you should wear chemical protective clothing; those working in the hazardous environment should always wear chemical protective clothing. When in use, when the wearer feels uncomfortable symptoms such as skin itching, tingling, nausea, etc., they should leave the harmful environment immediately. After checking the chemical protective clothing and accessories, confirming and rectifying the fault, you can re-enter the hazardous environment.
Relevant operators who must enter the emergency rescue accident site should receive training on the use of accident rescue chemical protective clothing and the matching respiratory protective equipment.
The effectiveness of protective clothing depends on the wearer’s mastery and correct use of the product. For chemical protective clothing, especially high-level protective clothing users, management personnel and other related personnel (such as: assisting staff wearing protective clothing, cleaning and maintenance staff), formal training should be carried out.
The training content includes: the nature and extent of chemical hazards and the impact on health (including skin effects) in the work process; the purpose, function, correct use method, and limitations of the chemical protective clothing to be used; inspection methods (including daily inspection , Inspection before wearing and wearing condition inspection, etc.); chemical protective clothing decontamination procedures; chemical protective clothing adaptability training; chemical protective clothing maintenance and storage.
Training should be carried out by qualified professionals, and all training should have written records; training should be continuously improved and consolidated through regular supervision. The content of the training should be constantly updated to maintain its advanced nature.
The maintenance of chemical protective clothing can keep the protective clothing in good condition. Therefore, it is necessary to perform regular maintenance every quarter or every year to visually check the integrity of the clothing and whether the surface is damaged. For air-tight protective clothing, the air-tightness test needs to be carried out at the same time. When conditions permit, such clothing should be stored in dark and ventilated conditions. Avoid high or low temperatures, which will affect its service life. In addition, hanging storage helps decontaminated clothing to reduce chemical residues, and can also prevent clothing from being stressed or damaged due to improper folding. In fact, some clothing officially had to be retired because the face screen was damaged after being folded.
