Absolutely and what ever you do, don't clean epoxy off your skin with solvent, this drives it into the bloodstream faster. Let it dry first...
Obviously, wear gloves and keep chaning them before they are torn (in my experience, nytrile last a bit longer than latex). As for uncured epoxy, straight white vinegar is great for cleaning up before it cures. I've stopped using acetone when I get a spill on the deck and now just use vinegar.
