5. Which PPE can prevent hazardous chemicals from being absorbed into the skin?
Personal protective equipment, or PPE, is designed to provide protection from serious injuries or illnesses. Careful selection and use of adequate PPE should protect individuals involved in chemical emergencies from hazards effecting the respiratory system, skin, eyes, face, hands, feet, head, body, and hearing.

Thus PPE should be used in conjunction with other protective methods, including exposure control procedures and equipment.
