Achieving appropriate protection against chemicals is complicated because of the great diversity of compounds and applications in the workplace. OSHA inspectors will generally accept the employer’s judgment in regard to personal protective equipment (PPE). In applications where the work is especially dangerous, the inspector might request documentation that the PPE is appropriate for the situation. Chemical-resistant gloves are designed to protect against chemical absorption into your body. Examples of chemical-resistant gloves would be nonporous types made of nitrile, neoprene, latex, rubber or PVA.
