Safety First Series - Process Operator - OSHA Level "B-2" PPE Protection - SCOTT SCBA - Pt 1

MorBius
Process operators work in many industries, and in plants that produce electricity, commodity gases (natural gas, propane, butane), gasoline, diesel fuel, industrial chemicals, plastics, ultra pure water, pharmaceuticals, and other such products. To help protect the workers in these industries, The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was passed, together with the creation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), whose Standard 1910.120 Appendix B details the four basic levels of protective gear (PPE Levels A-D) required for the Process Operator, with Level A being the highest level of protection and level D being the lowest). This model represents a Process Operator dressed in Level "B-2" attire, designed to protect against Level "D" atmospheric contaminants (dust/dirt) and Level "C" liquid splashes, while affording greater breathing protection through the use of a Positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (Scott SCBA). The remaining attire consists of the Level "C" work uniform or work coverall worn beneath a Dupont™ Tychem® chemical resistant hooded coverall, chemical resistant boots, inner and outer chemically resistant gloves, and hard hat. Additionally, both the boots and outer gloves are tapped to the uniform to prevent liquid entry. The modified hardhat suspension originally by Anonymous, with the pre-modified original uniform, gloves, boots, and head model courtesy of Max Grueter.
