Worker Protection

CDC’s Role

Each chemical weapons disposal facility has an elaborate cascading airflow and filtration system to protect workers. Engineering controls, air filtration, and chemical agent containment provide the main protection for workers.

Workers are also given protective clothing depending on their risk for exposures. Protective clothing includes special suits known as demilitarization protective ensembles. Other protective clothing follows recommendations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and U.S. Army.
