An employer must provide suitable overalls to protect employees from certain workplace hazards that cannot be eliminated or isolated. If you work in a factory, or in some labour intensive area that requires you to be adequately protected, you are going to need a good pair of coveralls for personal safety.

The coverall is also known as a boiler suit. It is a full-length, one-piece suit that looks like the jumpsuits pilots use, except that they are lighter, and they are looser.

Some coveralls are made of nomex, which is also flame retardant. These suits are used in jobs that require a person to enter an environment with fire hazards. Some are made to protect the wearer against environmental factors such as wind, snow, water, etc.

Aside from just wearing coveralls, those wearing coveralls are also equipped with safety gear and devices that pertain to their chosen field. For example, if the job requires protection for the person’s hands then gloves are issued. Helmets are also issued if protection for the head is required. 

Some of the functions of protective coveralls

Protective coveralls were created to ensure a high level of protection during work activities. They cover or replace personal clothing and their main purpose is to protect the worker from chemical, biological, mechanical, thermal, electromagnetic and electrical hazards. Coveralls often win against other elements of protective clothing thanks to their design, which provides additional protection against uncontrolled loss of parts of clothing by workers performing particularly dangerous work.


Listed are few of the advantages for one using coveralls in a proper strict manner keeping in mind their personal safety as the highest standard.

  • Very light material which does not restrict the freedom of movement
  • Guaranteed 100% cleanliness
  • Excellent protective properties
  • Long service life
  • No washing, maintenance or repair costs
  • Low purchase costs
  • Small size and low weight (minimum place needed for storage)
  • Simple disposal process


We should also keep in mind that not all coveralls, which are manufactured offer the same protection. Their degree of impermeability to particles and substances as well as their durability and comfort of wear can vary greatly from model to model and from company to company.

It is always advised to have a good read of the product specifications before purchasing.
