NFPA 704: Personal Protection

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Saves Lives

PPE equipment saves lives. It is critical that the proper equipment be worn at all times when working with dangerous chemicals. Certain materials protect against certain chemicals, and it is vital that employees understand what they should be wearing, and why. A solid understanding of PPE requirements is vital in the workplace.

Many believe that PPE simply means wearing a standard set of protective gear such as gloves, glasses and a jump-suit. While this may be sufficient for some chemicals, others will require a mask, googles, or perhaps an entire body-suit. Gloves may also need to be made of specific materials in order to protect against certain chemicals without being damaged.

You can inform employees of these special requirements through RTK labeling. An RTK label includes information about the chemical, PPE requirements and sanitization.
