EN ISO 27065

Clothing for protection against fertilisers

THE STANDARD IN DETAIL

These overalls are designed to protect workers exposed to fertilisers with certain usage and care requirements.
These overalls must be specifically designed for activities involving exposure to fertilisers. To help identify them, this pictogram appears on the flap of the pocket on the left leg.
They have a PPE label wih the CE marking including a table with 30 boxes to keep track of washes (maximum 30 cycles).
Like any PPE, they come with a user guide stating that this PPE cannot be washed at the same time as other workwear or household laundry.

Designed in partnership with BASF and tested on farm workers during the 2016 campaign, this new PPE clothing was designed with the prime objective to be far more comfortable than current overalls providing limited protection against chemicals. These overalls are protective equipment suitable for fertiliser users made from 100% French fabric.

Important: when mixing/filling and cleaning the spray, an EN iso 27065: 2017 level C3 chemical protection apron must be worn over the overalls.

THE 4 PILLARS OF PREVENTION

INFORMATION

Read product and equipment labels to check the usage, storage and care requirements and which precautions to take.NISATION

Prior organisation of treatment sites, strict separation between living area and area where fertilisers are used (tools, equipment, PPE). Maintain a clean and organised working area…

HYGIENE

Prioritise hand washing before and after any work, shower at the end of the working day. Clarify dressing/undressing procedures.
No smoking, drinking, eating or telephoning when using fertilisers…

PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

collective protective equipment (CPE): tractor cab filter, demarcated storage areas, CTS systems, dust deflector on seeder etc.
personal protective equipment (PPE): gloves, masks, specific protective clothing etc.

PPE is the “last element” of prevention alongside other measures to eliminate or reduce risk.
