English term or phrase: apron spat(s)
Welders and cutters shall wear hoods, goggles, gloves and *apron spats* with protective screens provided to protect onlookers and passers-by.

(Is this an error, originally meant to read "apron and spats" - or do these mysterious things exist?)

aprons and spats
Explanation:
I am pretty sure this is an error. Clearly these words refer to safety clothing and make little sense as a compound word.
