Techopedia Explains Bunny Suit

A bunny suit may be part of nanotechnology research project guidelines, or standard protocol for entering a major data storage facility. Some of the IT-related bunny suit gear can be made with anti-static features to prevent the buildup of static electricity, which can be damaging to some types of hardware. In general, these suits will cut down on the amount of small debris entering the room or space.

The specific context for protective protocol will vary depending on the type of project. IT managers may need to consider writing specific rules about wearing a bunny suit or protective suit as well as other gear, in order to provide consistent protocol for a technology project.
