Just the usual PPE. Gloves, safety glasses, and a mask.

Been in this business a lot of years and have worked around hundreds of carpenters even back when the pressure treated was supposed to be very poisonous, I've never even heard of anyone getting sick from pressure treated. Now I've read about it, but no personal story.

I'm more worried about the natural carcinogen in cedar than anything else.
