Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
When returning home and cleaning up after a disaster, make certain that everyone is wearing personal protective equipment (PPE).
- Face respirator HEPA filter rated N100 or P100, if asbestos or chemical vapors are not an issue, an N95 mask will suffice
- Googles or safety glasses with side shields or full face shield
- Earplugs or earmuffs in high noise areas
- Rubber boots for wet areas or steel toe boots with hard sole
- Cap with a protective brim
- Waterproof gloves thick enough to protect from cuts, chemicals, and temperatures
- Work clothes (long sleeves, long pants) that can be taken off when leaving work site or disposable coveralls
