All workers should wear appropriate protective equipment including overalls and boots at all times, and gloves, masks and caps when appropriate. Masks should be worn when tablets or capsules are being crushed as part of the disposal technique (for example, inertization, see Section 2.4) and when there is a risk of powders being liberated. Particular care is required when handling antineoplastics.
