About This Item


Full Description

This standard states the minimum requirements for performance of workwear worn for protection against unplanned exposure to hydrocarbon flash fire.

This standard establishes performance requirements and test methods for evaluation of components used to construct workwear.

Workwear meeting this standard is intended to provide a degree of protection to the wearer and reduce the severity of injury should a hydrocarbon flash fire occur. For the purposes of this standard, "protective" does not mean that a wearer will suffer no burns if exposed to flash fire while wearing workwear meeting this standard.

This standard refers to protective workwear that will be worn as the outermost garment.

This standard refers to protective workwear that individually or in combination covers the body from the neck to the wrists and feet, that may or may not cover the neck, head, hands and feet.

This standard does not apply to specialized protective clothing such as proximity suits, fire fighters' protective clothing and fire-entry clothing. It is not intended to establish requirements for protection from chemical, radiological, electrical or biological hazards.

The testing and evaluation of a product against this standard may require the use of materials and/or equipment that could be hazardous. This document does not purport to address all the safety aspects associated with its use. Anyone using this standard has the responsibility to consult the appropriate authorities and to establish appropriate health and safety practices in conjunction with any existing applicable regulatory requirements prior to its use.
