Global Classification Systems for Chemical Protective Apparel
ISO 16602 and ANSI/ISEA 103 provide a way for you to specify its performance in an objective and detailed manner. When faced with protecting workers from chemical hazards, there are no "all hazards" chemical protective garments. The chemical hazard, work activities, and environment vary from job to job. An "all hazards" garment would end up being too protective in most situations. Over-protection may limit the workers' ability to perform their jobs, adds the risk of heat stress, limits the workers' ability to see or be seen, reduces agility and dexterity, and adds cost...
