protective attire


Explanation:
My answer has a medical/health care bias because I work in a medical environment. I am not positively certain of the context with which you are working, but if it has anything to do with safety, then you may want to look at the following citations:

www.dent.ohio-state.edu/clinicmanual/attire.htm

"A. Protective Attire
The green clinic gown must be worn for all treatment procedures to prevent exposure to blood or other body fluid. The gowns should not be worn into the lobby area when greeting or dismissing your patient(s)."


www.devicelink.com/mddi/archive/99/09/010.html

"All employees who might come in contact with a contaminated device must wear protective attire."


www.osap.org/resources/IC/icguide97.htm

"DHCWs must wear protective attire such as eye wear or a chin-length shield, disposable gloves, a disposable surgical quality mask, and protective clothing when performing procedures capable of causing splash, spatter, or other contact with body fluids, and/or mucous membranes. Protective attire must also be worn when touching items or surfaces that may be contaminated with these fluids, and during other activities that pose a risk of exposure to blood, saliva or tissue."


Another term that is often used in safety-related contests is "protective personal equipment" or PPE. You are in a better position to judge if this is a suitable term for your context.
