Farm Overall Fabric
Farm Overall Fabric is an all-body cover garment that can be worn all through farm operation for protection against harsh weather, thorns, and specks of dirt.
Choosing Farm Overall Fabric
Protecting the body with the proper clothing can help prevent injuries or lessen any that occur. When selecting clothing to wear to work, wear nothing that dangles, is untucked or tattered. These can get caught and possibly draw you into the machine. Keep jewellery to a minimum. Metal is an excellent conductor of electricity, so do not wear any jewellery (including a wedding band) when working with electricity or heavy machinery. Pull back long hair so that it does not interfere with your work or get caught in any machinery that you may be using.
Other Protective Wears
- Torso protection is available as vests, jackets, aprons, coveralls and full bodysuits.
- Wool and specially treated cotton are two natural fibres that are fire-resistant and comfortable since they adapt well to changing workplace temperatures.
- Duck, a closely-woven cotton fabric, is good for light-duty protective clothing. It can protect against cuts and bruises on jobs where employees handle heavy, sharp or rough material. Heat-resistant clothing, such as leather, is often used to guard against dry heat and flame.
- Rubber and rubberized fabric, neoprene and plastics give protection against some acids and chemicals.
- Disposable suits of paper-like material are particularly important for protection from dusty materials or materials that can splash. If the substance is extremely toxic, a completely enclosed suit may be necessary.
- Pads are available to protect the shoulders and back when carrying heavy loads or rough-edged objects. Padded leather or hard fibre aprons will help protect the body from blows. Wear knee pads for continued kneeling, crawling or working on hands and knees.
