Personal Protection

It is important that you take measures to ensure your personal protection as you may be exposed to potential health risks from hazardous material, debris, and ash:
• Wear protective glasses or goggles to protect your eyes
• Use a two-strap, dust particulate mask with a nose clip such as N-95; or a protective face covering; or a damp cloth to cover your nose and mouth
• Wear long sleeved shirt and long pants to protect your skin
• Wear boots with thick (lug) soles that cannot be punctured and can withstand high temperatures; avoid tennis/running shoes and do not wear sandals or other open-toed shoes
• Wear leather gloves to protect hands from sharp objects
• Wear rubber gloves when working with outhouse remnants, plumbing fixtures, sewer piping and chemicals (including household chemicals)
