The exposure to insecticides causes several health problems, which can be aggravated by more toxicity. Therefore, to avoid this exposure, it is required to use protective clothing. The use of protective equipment against pesticides is indispensable and essential from the preparation/handling regulations of the pesticides spray to the application of diluted formulations. However, even with this protection, workers are not totally immune to the contamination of pesticides.
