Fire Remediation PPE 2022
According to OSHA, “Personal protective equipment is worn to minimize exposure to a variety of hazards. Examples of PPE include such items as gloves, foot and eye protection, protective hearing devices (earplugs, muffs) hard hats, respirators and full body suit.
We take the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) very seriously. On every job that our production crew goes on, there is some use of PPE, even if it is just a mask.
On any fire remediation job, there can be many hazardous materials affected by the fire, such as asbestos, lead, household chemicals, and mold. These materials, on top of the smoke and soot, require additional personal protective equipment to prevent the inhalation and physical contact with any of these harmful substances.
Personal protective equipment that may be required on a fire remediation job, depending on the extent of the damages, could include:
- Respirator/ Face Mask
- Eye Protection
- Foot protection
