Ergonomic standard
  • Abstract:
    This European Standard specifies the minimum requirements, test methods, marking and information suppliedby the manufacturer, for ventilated and non-ventilated gas-tight chemical protective suits for use byemergency teams (ET).It specifies full body personal protective ensembles to be worn for protection against solid, liquid and gaseouschemicals, including liquid and solid aerosols. Chemicals such as violently air sensitive reagents, unstableexplosives and cryogenic liquids have not been considered since protection against these additionalhazards is beyond the scope of this standard.This standard does not establish minimum criteria for protection for non-chemical hazards, e. g.radiological, fire, heat, explosive hazards, infective agents.. This type of equipment is not intended for total immersion in liquids.The seams, joins and assemblages attaching the accessories are included within the scope of this standard.The performance criteria for the accessories, gloves, boots or respiratory protective equipment are given inother Standards.Particulate protection is limited to physical penetration of the particulates only.
