These suits are intended to protect workers exposed to plant protection products under certain conditions of use and maintenance. These suits must be specifically dedicated to activities involving exposure to plant protection products. For easy identification, the pictogram is placed on the flap of the pocket located on the left leg. They include a CE-marked PPE sticker with a table with 30 boxes to keep track of washings (maximum 30 cycles). Like all PPE, they are supplied with instructions for use, specifying in particular that this PPE must not be washed simultaneously with other work or family clothing.

Developed in partnership with BASF and tested with farm operators during the 2016 campaign, this new clothing PPE was designed with the main objective of providing much more comfort than the current limited-use chemical suits. This suit is finally a protective equipment adapted for the user of phytopharmaceutical products, made of a 100% French fabric.

The 4 pillars of prevention

  • The information

    Read product and equipment labels to know the conditions of use, storage, maintenance and precautions to take.

  • The organization of work

    Prior organization of treatment sites, strict separation of the family living space from the area where phytosanitary products are used (tools, equipment, PPE). Maintaining a clean and organized work area…

  • Hygiene

    Priority to hand washing before and after the intervention, shower after the end of the work. Mastery of dressing/undressing procedures.
    Do not smoke, drink, eat or use the telephone while using plant protection products…

  • Protective equipment

    collective protection equipment (EPC): filtered tractor cabs, marking of storage areas, CTS systems, dust deflector on the seed drill, etc.
    Personal protective equipment (PPE): gloves, masks, dedicated protective clothing, etc.

    PPE is the “last element” of prevention, in addition to other measures to eliminate or reduce risks.
