Occupational Safety and Health Administration. (2018). PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) for Emergency Response and Recovery Workers. U.S. Department of Labor.
This webpage discusses personal protective equipment (PPE) for emergency response and recovery workers, particularly those responding to natural disaster and chemical (including oil), biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) events. (Note that hospital decontamination is different than scene response and should refer to OSHA’s “First Receiver” document in the Hospital Patient Decontamination Topic Collection).
