Radiological Training for Tritium Facilities
Personal Protective Equipment
Air Supplied Suits
Because of the absorption through
the skin associated with the use of
respirators and other breathing
apparatus, air-supplied plastic suits
that completely enclose the body are
widely used by facilities that handle
large quantities of tritium.
Protective clothing (PC), or anti-
contamination clothing (anti-Cs), is
used to minimize the spread of
contamination from contaminated
to clean areas.
In many operations, the hands and
forearms of workers are vulnerable
to contact with tritium surface
contamination. The proper
selection of gloves and glove
materials is important. In many
instances a plastic/water proof suit is
