-AFPMB TECHNICAL GUIDESThis is one of a series of Technical Guides (TGs) published by the Information Services Division (ISD), Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB). The AFPMB is a directorate within the Office of the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Installations and Environment) that recommends policies and procedures, provides guidance, and coordinates the exchange of information related to pest management throughout the Department of Defense (DoD). As a unit of the AFPMB, the ISD collects, stores, and disseminates published and unpublished information on arthropod vectors and pests, natural resources, and environmental biology important to the DoD. Other ISD products include country- or region-specific Disease Vector Ecology Profiles (DVEPs). All TGs and DVEPs, as well as ISDs database of over 200,000 articles on pest management and medical zoology, are available at the AFPMB Web site . TGs (formerly Technical Information Memoranda or TIMs) are not policy documents; rather, they provide technical guidance for the use of the DoD pest management community and others. TGs are a contributing part of the overarching DoD approach to integrated pest management, combining principles from each to meet that goal. Therefore each TG should not be considered as stand-alone guidance and should not be construed or referenced as policy. DoD pest management policies may be found in DoD Directive 4715.1E, "Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health (ESOH)" DoD Instruction 4150.07, "DoD Pest Management Program," other DoD directives and instructions, and implementing component directives/instructions/ regulations. Inquiries, comments or suggestions for improving TGs may be directed to the Chief, ISD, at (301) 2957476, FAX (301) 295-7473 or via http://www.afpmb.org/contact.

Acknowledgements The previous revision of Technical Guide (TG) 14 was prepared through the efforts of the Armed Forces Pest Management Board (AFPMB) Equipment Committee. For this latest revision, the AFPMB acknowledges and thanks Colonel Brian M. Spears, USAF for his significant efforts as well as those of Lieutenant Colonel Sonya S. Schleich, USA. The AFPMB Pesticides Committee provided final editing and publication preparation. Special thanks are also given to Mr. Clifford Myers, Chemist/AFPMB Pesticides Committee Chair, Defense Logistics Agency-Aviation, Joint Commodities Division (FAJ), for his guidance and information relating to national stock numbers and cancellations. Reviews of this Guide were provided by CAPT Mark Beavers, USN, and CDR Daniel Szumlas, USN, AFPMB Equipment Committee Chair. Disclaimer TG 14 discusses specific proprietary products regarding respiratory system protective devices and disposable coveralls. Mention of trade names does not constitute a guarantee or a warranty of the product by AFPMB, the military departments, or the Department of Defense (DoD). Information or inquiries concerning any equipment not listed should be sent through Command Pest Management Professionals or Applied Biologists to the Equipment Committee, AFPMB, for evaluation. NOTE This TG includes Basis of Issue (BOI) Information for USA and USAF pest pesticide applicators based on Service Tables of Allowances (TAs). While there are no comparative tables for USN/USMC personnel, these individuals may use BOI information here as a guideline to procure personal safety equipment for military and civilian pesticide applicators. Search http://www.dlis.dla.mil/webflis/ for the most current National Stock Numbers (NSNs). Purpose Personnel who handle and/or apply pesticides are required to wear personal protective equipment and clothing according to the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (40 CFR 170), Occupational Safety and Health Standards (29 CFR 1910), DOD Instruction 4150.07, and individual pesticide labels. Such protective devices include respirators, gloves, goggles, and protective clothing necessary for the pest management operations being conducted and the pesticides used. Each pesticide applicator's unit of assignment must provide these items. This TG provides supply and other data necessary to request and effectively use pest management protective equipment. It also contains a methodology that pest management supervisors may use to help determine personal safety equipment requirements. Equipment discussed in this TG is required according to General Requirements, 29 CFR 1910.132, Subpart I - Personal Protective Equipment, and applicable paragraphs of 29 CFR 1910.133 and 1910.134. This TG includes specific tri-service regulations and other guidelines which serve as procurement and issuance authorities for each equipment item.

Determining Personal Safety Equipment Requirements Among the many challenges for pest management supervisors is determining the items of personal protective equipment (PPE) that are required for different pesticides, and then to insure shop personnel wear the required items. Equipment requirements are dictated by the type of pesticide used, its toxicity characteristics, percentage of active ingredients, and phase of handling. In accordance with DODI 4150.07, DoD Pest Management Plan, local workplace evaluations performed by qualified safety and health professionals may determine more appropriate PPE combinations (or other hazard control requirements, such as mechanical ventilation) based on particular pesticide preparations and use. These safety and health hazard control recommendations should be incorporated into local operations. The purpose of this section is to help pest management supervisors accurately determine equipment needs consistent with pesticides on hand. To help meet this goal, use the Safety Equipment Requirements Worksheet (Figure 1). Effectively used, this completed form will help supervisors identify specific equipment requirements and communicate these requirements to subordinates. Supervisors should make copies of this worksheet before they start, since most pest management sections stock more than 10 different pesticides. Label each sheet according to the type of pesticide described (insecticide, herbicide, etc.). Because of space limitations in Part 2 of the worksheet, use letter codes to identify specifically when each equipment item should be worn (e.g., M - mixing; A- applying, etc.). Identify codes in the Notes section of the worksheet. A comprehensive list of PPE for pesticide applicators is provided in the Appendix for pesticides on the AFPMB standard list of pesticides. It is an excellent reference when filling out the worksheet. Naturally, use of this form calls for some discretion. First, some pesticide labels and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) only generally describe the specific types of personal protective clothing required. Specific PPE needs for a given situation may be more or less stringent than those recommended here. Therefore, each workplace should be evaluated to determine personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements by qualified safety and health personnel. Second, some safety equipment items, such as earplugs and helmets, are not likely to appear on a pesticide label. For example, the decision to wear earplugs or a helmet may only be based on the equipment being used and where the pesticide is applied, such as with a gasoline powered engine or near an active runway. Two key safety items that are not considered PPE are a shower and an eye wash. Both are required in the pesticide shop or workplace where mixing occurs (areas where liquid or particulates may fly into the eye and contaminate the body) and wherever directed by DoD guidelines and qualified safety and health personnel. This guide covers only PPE requirements for wear. It does not address in detail personal hygiene or cleaning and decontamination of PPE. Generally, a key item of personal hygiene is avoiding eating, drinking, smoking, tobacco use, and gum chewing while applying pesticides. Pesticide applicators must wash their hands immediately after completing a pesticide application. Pesticides must be kept away from food, drink, and animal feed. PPE should be removed immediately after pesticide application, and cleaned or decontaminated according to manufacturer instructions or by what is in the MSDS or on the pesticide label.

Safety Equipment

Apron, General Purpose (1) Description: Apron, impermeable, cotton duck, both sides coated with chloroprene rubber. Tie tape fasteners in the back; no sleeves or pockets. Universal size; 48 inches long and 34-5/8 inches wide at the waist. (2) Use and maintenance: Wear the apron when measuring and mixing pesticides, filling sprayers, or working with solvents. Aprons are especially helpful when handling large amounts of liquid pesticides. The apron serves as an additional precaution to prevent body contamination of the pubic region with pesticide. This region of the body is very susceptible to pesticide absorption. To maintain aprons, simply wash them with soap and water and inspect them regularly for tears or holes. Discard the apron if tears or holes are found; Do Not Repair. (3) Basis of issue: USA: One per pesticide applicator measuring or mixing pesticides or handling solvents. USAF: As requested, when authorized by the unit commander. (4) National Stock Number: 8415-00-082-6108. (5) Unit of issue: Each (Ea). (6) Expendability: Nonexpendable. (7) Authority: AR 385-10, NAVMED P-5010-8, AFI 32-1053, CTA 50-900, TA 016.

Boots, Knee (1) Description: Boots, knee, men's, non-insulated, black rubber. Fifteen inches high with waterproofed uppers and cleated or knurled rubber soles. Nonslip rubber heels. (2) Use and maintenance: Rubber boots should be worn when mixing or applying liquid pesticides, especially for working on large-scale operations or with liquid pesticide concentrates. (Leather or canvas boots will absorb liquid pesticides, so don't use them unless covered by rubber boots.) Wear rubber boots with the tops beneath the legs of trousers, coveralls or other protective clothing. Maintain rubber boots by frequent washing with soap and water, inside and out, to remove pesticide contaminants. (3) Basis of issue: One pair per pesticide applicator (USA and USAF).

Coveralls, Men’s (IAW MIL-C-27845, USA and USAF only) (1) Description: Coveralls, men’s white, cotton sateen. Slide fastener closure with protective fly piece at front. Leg bottoms and wrists closed with nylon tape fasteners. Three patch pockets and a draw cord at the waist. (2) Use and maintenance: To mix and apply pesticides, pest pesticide applicators should wear coveralls that cover the entire body to protect the skin from contamination. Coveralls are authorized for pest management personnel to wear only while performing job duties. Never use them as a replacement for normal military or civilian clothing. Worn coveralls must be washed daily in soap and water, and separately from other clothing. To prevent contamination of other clothing, shop-dedicated washing machines and dryers are typically authorized so pesticide applicators can maintain coveralls in a clean condition at all times. Coveralls require frequent inspection to detect holes, tears and thinning of material. If one detects any of these conditions, replace them through the supply system. (3) Basis of issue: USA: Six per pesticide applicator when washer and dryer are located in the pest management shop. Twelve per pesticide applicator when no washer and dryer are located in the shop. USAF: 3 per AFSC 3E4X3.

Coveralls, Disposable (1) Description: Coveralls made of spunbonded olefin (DuPont TYVEK®) fabric. Manufactured in several styles, colors and designs by various safety garment manufacturers. (2) Use and maintenance: According to manufacturer specifications. Under normal conditions, use of disposable coveralls should not exceed one day or eight hours. If such garments are splashed or drenched, replace them immediately. Use garments made of untreated olefin to apply pesticide granules, dusts, and powders. Use chemically-treated coveralls, made of products such as TYVEK® and Dow SARANEX® to apply granules, dusts, powders, and liquid pesticides. Do not use olefin coveralls to handle chlorinated hydrocarbons. Do not use polyethylene-coated olefin coveralls to handle chlorinated hydrocarbons or phosphorus compounds, and avoid potential heat-stress situations. (3) Basis of issue: Not applicable. (4) National Stock Number: None available. Use locally-purchased items. (5) Unit of issue: Refer to manufacturer guidance. (6) Expendability: Expendable. (7) Authority: Current Service regulations make no specific mention of disposable coveralls. Contact the appropriate Engineering Field Division (EFD) biologist, Command Entomologist, or local qualified safety and health personnel (DODI 6055.01) if additional assistance is needed.

Hearing Protection (1) Description: Two types of ear protectors are discussed here. The first type, ear plugs, are made of silicon rubber and have a single or triple flange to help hold the plug in the ear. The second type is aural protectors, or ear muffs. Ear muffs have a plastic outer shell covering each ear with a soundabsorbent material and replaceable plastic ear pads inside each shell. This one-piece unit has a plasticcovered metal headpiece connecting the two shells. Ear muffs are adjustable for head size and provide sound reductions of 24 dB minimum at 500 Hz and 30 dB minimum at 8000 Hz. The appropriate safety office will make the determination for the level of ear protection required based on the equipment utilized in the Pest Management shop. (2) Use and Maintenance: Pesticide applicators must wear ear protective devices such as earplugs and/or ear muffs whenever they operate noisy equipment or work in hazardous-noise areas. Ear plugs are appropriate when hazardous noise exposure is intermittent and the bulk of ear muffs is undesirable. Ear plugs must be fitted by medical or safety technicians responsible for the installation Hearing Conservation Program. Ear muffs are used to protect hearing when workers are exposed to noise levels above 85 decibels or continually exposed to noise such as that produced by powered application equipment. Maintenance of earplugs consists of washing them with soap and warm water. Inspect aural protectors periodically to detect hardening of the vinyl pads. Replace these pads when hardening is detected. (3) Basis of Issue: Ear muffs -- One per individual exposed to noise hazards. Ear plugs -- One set per individual (USA and USAF). (4) National Stock Numbers: No stock number is needed for ear plugs. These are fitted and issued by the office responsible for the installation Hearing Conservation Program. The NSNs for aural protectors (ear muffs) are 4240-00-022-2946 and 4240-00-759-3290. NOTE: Ear muffs have replaceable, adhesive-backed ear pads. The NSN for these is 6540-01-0948292. This number is good for the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Because of this NSN's 6540 prefix, it is a medical supply item. Contact the installation medical supply unit to order these pads. (5) Unit of issue: Ear plugs: Pair (Pr). Ear muffs: Each (Ea). Ear muff pads: Box (Bx). Each box has 50 pair. (6) Expendability: Expendable. (7) Authority: DA PAM 40-501, NAVMED P-5010-8, AFI 32-1053, AFOSHSTD 48-20.

7

Faceshield, Industrial (1) Description: Industrial face shield with a 6-inch wide plastic mask and forehead guard. (2) Use and Maintenance: Pesticide applicators should wear either a face shield or goggles when mixing and applying pesticides to protect the eyes and face from pesticide splashing or wind drift. There are times when a face shield is more adequate than goggles and vice versa. Remember to give the eyes as much protection as possible in each circumstance. Keep pesticide containers below eye level during mixing to prevent splashes to the face. (3) Basis of Issue: USA: One per pesticide applicator. USAF: As required when approved by Ground Safety.

Gloves, Chemical and Oil Protective (1) Description: Natural or synthetic rubber gloves, organic solvent resistant, 14 inches long, black, with a rolled edge cuff. (2) Use and Maintenance: Pesticide applicators should wear gloves to prevent skin contamination during all phases of pesticide handling and to clean dispersal and protective equipment. Several types of gloves are available, but leather, cotton, or medical examination gloves are not to be worn to handle pesticides. The gloves described here are unlined and liquid proof. Gloves should fit hands snugly and should be long enough to extend well above the wrist so they can be worn under coverall sleeves. To apply pesticides to areas above the shoulders, wear the gloves outside coverall sleeves. For lower areas, wear the gloves underneath the sleeves. To maintain gloves, wash them after each day's use with soap and water, inside and out, and inspect them for holes and tears. To do this, fill each glove with water and gently squeeze while holding the top of the glove closed with one hand. If holes or damage are found, shred and dispose of the gloves so no one else can use them. Follow manufacturer’s guidance. (3) Basis of Issue: USA: One pair per pesticide applicator. USAF: One pair per pesticide applicator. (4) National Stock Numbers: 8415-00-823-7458 8415-00-823-7459 8415-00-823-7460

EPA Chemical Resistance Category Chart The following information and EPA Chemical Resistance Category Chart are from the Purdue Pesticide Programs, Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service accessible at website: http://www.ppp.purdue.edu/Pubs/PPP38.html. Labels refer to chemical resistance categories (A through H) for personal protective equipment. Items in these categories are made of materials that the pesticide cannot pass through during the times indicated below the chart. The categories are based on the solvents used in the pesticides, not the pesticides themselves. Therefore, there will be instances where the same pesticide in two different formulations (e.g., wettable powder and emulsifiable concentrate) will require PPE from two different chemical resistance categories. The following is an example of label information referring a user to the EPA Chemical Resistance Category Chart: The chemical resistance selection category for this product is H. For more information about PPE materials that are resistant to this product for various lengths of time, consult an EPA chemical resistance category chart. The EPA chemical resistance category chart below shows that pesticide products in the H category require barrier laminate or Viton(R) materials for a full day's exposure, whereas butyl, nitrile, and rubber offer protection for 10 minutes of contact with the chemical. No other materials offer chemical resistance to, nor protect against, category H chemicals. Figure 2.

Respirator Fit Testing (1) 29 CFR 1910.134 requires employers to develop and implement a written respiratory protection program with required worksite specific procedures and elements for required respirator use. A suitably trained program administrator must administer the program. The program must include respirator fit testing for individual employees required to wear respirators. a. The employer shall select a NIOSH-certified respirator. b. Before any employee is required to use a respirator with a negative or positive pressure tightfitting facepiece, the pesticide applicator must be fit tested with the same make, model, style, and size of respirator that will be used. The respirator shall be used in compliance with the conditions of its certification. c. Fit testing requires performing quantitative or qualitative fit testing in the negative pressure mode, regardless of the mode of operation (negative or positive pressure) used for respiratory protection. Qualitative fit testing is a pass/fail fit test to assess the adequacy of respirator fit that relies on the individual’s response to the test agent. It is done by temporarily converting the respirator user's actual facepiece into a negative pressure respirator with appropriate filters, or by using an identical negative pressure air-purifying respirator facepiece with the same sealing surfaces as a surrogate for the atmosphere-supplying or powered air-purifying respirator facepiece. Quantitative fit testing is an assessment of the adequacy of respirator fit by numerically measuring the amount of leakage into the respirator. It is done by modifying the facepiece to allow sampling inside the facepiece in the breathing zone of the user, midway between the nose and mouth. This requirement is met by installing a permanent sampling probe onto a surrogate facepiece, or by using a sampling adapter designed to temporarily provide a means of sampling air from inside the facepiece. (2) The Air Force Program is described in the Air Force Occupational, Safety, and Health (AFOSH) Standard 48-137, Respiratory Protection Program, and administered by the Medical Treatment Facility’s Bioenvironmental Engineering office. The Air Force uses AF Form 2772, Certificate of Respirator Fit Test, to document fit testing. The form is not required; however, if not used, the fit test must be documented in the Defense Occupational and Environmental Health Readiness System (DOEHRS). Bio Environmental will mandate the type of respirator(s) to be used and training must be accomplished annually. (3) Army requirements are documented in Army Regulation 11-34, Army Respiratory Protection Program. This publication instructs users to follow OSHA fit testing procedures and follow the requirements in 29 CFR 1910.134. (4) Navy requirements are well described online in a document titled Generic Respiratory Protection Program - Policy and SOPs (OPNAVINST 5100.23 based on 29CFR 1910.134). The document includes a form for fit testing. http://www.nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/ih/generic%20sop%2017%20june%202009.pdf (5) The information included in this section does not eliminate the need for each Pest Management section to contact the appropriate medical office before purchasing any respiratory protective equipment. The following offices have primary responsibility for identifying respiratory equipment requirements at each military installation: USA: Preventive Medicine Service.

(6) Use and Maintenance: To maintain respiratory protection devices, wash all rubber surfaces with soap and water after each day's use. Store respirators in a cool dark area if storage is to be prolonged and follow manufacturers’ guidance. Cartridge use must be based on a change out schedule per 1910.134(d)(3)(iii)(B)(2). If there is no end of service life (ESLI) appropriate for conditions in the employer’s workplace, the employer implements a change schedule for canisters and cartridges that is based on objective information or data that will ensure the that canisters and cartridges are changed before the end of their service life. The employer shall describe in the respirator program the information and data relied upon and the basis for the canister and cartridge change schedule and the basis for reliance on the data. Also, keep track of cartridge expiration dates to insure they aren't exceeded as it is no longer appropriate to rely on odors for setting a cartridge change schedule. 3M Respirators 4240-01-495-1294 Half-face, 3M 7500 series (SM) 4240-01-495-1293 Half-face, 3M 7500 series (MED) 4240-01-495-1291 Half-face, 3M 7500 series (LG) 4240-01-314-2780 Full-face, 3M 7800 series (SM) 4240-01-342-5239 Full-face, 3M 7800 series (SM/MED) 4240-01-301-3200 Full-face, 3M 7800 series (MED/LG) 4240-01-246-5407 Cartridge, organic vapor, pesticides 3M P/N 6001 OV Cartridge fits 7500 & 7800 series 4240-01-389-7449 701 Cartridge filter adaptor for use with 6001 OV Cartridge to use with 7800 respirator North Respirators 4240-01-249-9261 Half-face, 550030 series, P/N: 5501P95L-12 (LG) 4240-01-249-9262 Half-face, 550030 series, P/N: 5501NP95L-12 (MED) 4240-01-249-9263 Half-face, 550030 series, P/N: 5501NP95S-12 (SM) 4240-01-249-2573

(8) Expendability: Respirator facepieces are nonexpendable. Associated parts, such as filters, retainers, etc., are expendable. (9) Authority: AR 385-10, NAVMED P-5080-8, AFI 32-1053. (10) It is imperative for you to immediately notify your supervisor if you detect a leak in your respirator. Half-face respirators are suitable for most application techniques. Full-face respirators may be required to perform some pesticide applications. Further, pesticide applicators must be placed on a medical surveillance program to test for pesticide absorption and other related pest control medical concerns. It is the applicator’s responsibility to make these scheduled appointments.

Appendix: Personal Protective Equipment Requirements For Pesticide Applicators The personal protective equipment (PPE) listed in this appendix is for pesticide applicators under normal conditions with adequate ventilation. PPE for mixers, loaders, pilots, flaggers, persons entering treated areas and those involved with industrial formulation or emergency spills is often different and more stringent. Where ventilation is inadequate, respirators are required. In some cases where exposure is reduced, PPE requirements can be lessened. This determination must be made by a workplace supervisor who is knowledgeable about the pesticide in question. Consult the material safety data sheet (MSDS) and label for requirements other than normal application or where ventilation is inadequate. Above all, evaluate the situation, use common sense, and use adequate PPE under the given circumstances. For many pesticides, use of a long-sleeved shirt and long pants are required. One can substitute coveralls for this requirement. Two key safety items not listed in the tables below are a shower and an eye wash. Both will be present in the pesticide shop or workplace. At a minimum, an eye wash (mobile) will be available where pesticides are being applied for any pesticide requiring eye protection. PPE for firefighters is more stringent than any of the above, and is discussed in TG 16, Pesticide Fires, Control, Prevention, and Cleanup. The information for PPE is most commonly listed in section 8 of the MSDS, but is sometimes found in section 3, 7, 9, or 10. Occasionally PPE requirements are not in the MSDS, or the MSDS refers one to the label for PPE requirements. On the label, PPE requirements are found under precautionary statements, hazards to humans and domestic animals. Sometimes PPE requirements are only listed in the MSDS and are not listed on the label.

NOTE: Check the current listing for DoD approved pesticide listings on the AFPMB website.
