hazmat suit definition and meaning

What is a "hazmat suit"?

A hazmat suit, also known as a hazardous materials suit, is a type of protective clothing designed to shield the wearer from hazardous materials. Typically made of impermeable materials, such as rubber, plastic, or Tyvek, a hazmat suit is designed to prevent the wearer from coming into contact with harmful chemicals, infectious agents, or radioactive materials. It typically consists of a one-piece coverall with a built-in hood and respirator, along with gloves and boots. Hazmat suits are commonly used by emergency responders, healthcare workers, and hazardous waste workers when dealing with hazardous materials that could pose a risk to their health and safety.
