I realize there are many out there that apply chemicals. What I am wondering is - as a rule I don't see most employing safety measures to protect themselves. I realize I don't see everybody, but the ones I see don't. In fact since I started mowing in 1999, I have seen one guy wear rubber boots, he didn't have gloves on. Another guy wore gloves , but no other protective apparel. Just yesterday I saw a woman mixing chemicals on a large truck, 300 or so gallon, no protection. TGCL sprays here all the time, no protection sometimes gloves. This friend of mine is in the thick of things and thinks he needs some protection, I agree. Just not sure what he needs.
