Abstract
Preventing injuries may involve providing personal equipment to individual workers to protect them against hazards. Decisions about personal protective equipment (PPE) should be made based on knowledge of the hazards for any particular task and the PPE available to protect against such hazards. Agricultural chemicals have both detailed labels and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) that provide recommendations for appropriate PPE to protect workers from specific chemicals. Reputable suppliers are knowledgeable about the capabilities of various types and variations of PPE and should be consulted in the selection process.
