Abstract Chemical protective clothing (CPC) is often employed as a primary option to reduce occupational exposures during pesticide applications, but field studies evaluating CPC are limited. The study was designed to evaluate several protective garments and to determine the ability of specific CPC components to reduce worker exposure. The studies, conducted in central Florida during citrus applications of Ethion 4 Miscible, examined cotton workshirts and workpants, cotton/polyester(CP) coveralls, SMS coveralls, and Sontara coveralls. CPC performance was evaluated by fluorescent tracers and video imaging analysis and by the patch technique. Nonwoven coveralls allowed signicantly greater exposure than did tradionally woven garments primarily because of design factors. Fabric penetration occurred with high frequency for all test garments, and none can be considered chemically resistant under these field conditions; improved coverall garments would provide only a small further reduction in exposure. Faceshields would reduce the exposure approximately three times more than would improved coveralls. Exposure pathways that would probably be undetected or inaccurately quantified by the patch technique were measured by fluorescent tracers and imaging analysis. The patch technique was far more sensitive in detecting fabric penetration.
