PPE - Personal Protection Equipment


ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2015

American National Standard for Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices

This standard sets forth criteria related to the general requirements, testing, permanent marking, selection, care, and use of protectors to minimize the occurrence and severity or prevention of injuries from such hazards as impact, non-ionizing radiation and liquid splash exposures in occupational and educational environments including, but not limited to, machinery operations, material welding and cutting, chemical handling, and assembly operations. Certain hazardous exposures are not covered in this standard. These include, but are not limited to: Bloodborne pathogens, X-rays, high energy particulate radiation, microwaves, radio-frequency radiation lasers, masers, and sports and recreation.


ANSI/ISEA 101-2014

American National Standard for Limited-Use and Disposable Coveralls - Size and Labeling Requirements

This standard establishes minimum size requirements, as well as garment and package labeling requirements, for limited-use and disposable coveralls. This standard includes a sizing chart to assist the wearer in the selection of the correct garment size, and test protocols to validate size selection.


ANSI/ISEA 102-1990 (R2009)

American National Standard For Gas Detector Tube Units - Short Term Type for Toxic Gases and Vapors in Working Environments

This standard sets forth the performance requirements for gas detector tube units and components, which are used to determine the concentrations of toxic gases and vapors in working environments.


ANSI/ISEA 104-1998 (R2009)

American National Standard for Air Sampling Devices - Diffusive Type for Gases and Vapors in Working Environments

This standard seeks to provide manufacturers and end users of diffusive samplers with guidance concerning the tests to be used in evaluating samplers for various air sampling applications. This standard is not intended as a means of sampler classification, nor as a means, by which the performance of different samplers can be strictly compared.


ANSI/ISEA 105-2016

American National Standard for Hand Protection Classification

ANSI/ISEA 105-2016 addresses the classification and testing of hand protection for specific performance properties related to chemical and industrial applications Hand protection includes gloves, mittens, partial gloves, or other items covering the hand or a portion of the hand that are intended to provide protection against or resistance to a specific hazard. This standard provides performance ranges for related to mechanical protection (cut-resistance, puncture resistance and abrasion resistance), chemical protection (permeation resistance, degradation) and other performance characteristics such as ignition resistance and vibration reductions based on standardized test methods. Descriptions of the test methods used in this standard are provided. Different levels of performance are specified for each property with zero (0) representing the minimal protection or none at all.


ANSI/ISEA 107-2015

American National Standard for High-Visibility Safety Apparel and Accessories

ANSI/ISEA 107-2015 provides performance requirements for conspicuous materials to be used in HVSA and specifies minimum amounts of background, retroreflective and combined-performance materials, colors and placement of materials for garments, supplemental items and accessory items used to enhance the visibility and safety of workers. The 2015 edition continues to present three performance classes of garments based on the amount of visible materials and design attributes incorporated into the final configuration and now identifies garment types based on expected use settings and work activities being performed. These are designated as off-road (type O), roadway and temporary traffic control (type R), or public safety activities (type P).


ANSI/ISEA 113-2013

Fixed and Portable Decontamination Shower Units

This standard is intended for use by first responders and receiving medical facilities for the initial decontamination of victims of contamination and possible exposure. This standard addresses classification and testing criteria for fixed and portable showers designed for decontamination facilities. The standard establishes minimum performance requirements for equipment capable of decontaminating one or more persons at the same time.


ANSI/ISEA 201-2012

Classification of Insulating Apparel Used in Cold Work Environments

This standard establishes classification requirements for occupational apparel items worn in cold environments. The apparel items specified in this standard are passively insulated, i.e., designed to regulate body temperature of the wearer by inhibiting heat transfer away from the body.


ANSI/ISEA 207-2011

American National Standard for High-Visibility Public Safety Vests

The second iteration of this widely-used consensus standard, updated in October 2011, specifies the requirements for high-visiblity vests utilized by the public safety sector.


ANSI/ISEA Z308.1-2015

American National Standard û Minimum Requirements for Workplace First Aid Kits and Supplies

ANSI/ISEA Z308.1-2015 establishes minimum performance requirements for first aid kits and their supplies that are intended for use in various work environments. Classification of first aid kits, designating the assortment of items and quantity of each item, is based on the anticipated number of users intended to be served by each first aid kit, as well as the complexity of the work environment and level of hazards. First aid kit containers are classified by portability, ability to be mounted, resistance to water and corrosion and impact resistance.


ANSI/ISEA Z358.1-2014

American National Standard for Emergency Eyewash and Shower Equipment

This standard establishes minimum performance and use requirements for eyewash and shower equipment for the emergency treatment of the eyes or body of a person who has been exposed to hazardous materials. It covers the following types of equipment: emergency showers, eyewashes, eye/face washes, and combination units. This standard also includes performance and use requirements for personal wash units and drench hoses, which are considered supplemental to emergency eyewash and shower equipment.


ANSI/ISEA Z89.1-2014

American National Standard for Industrial Head Protection

This standard describes Types and Classes, testing and performance requirements for protective helmets. These include recommended safety requirements for authorities considering the establishment of regulations or codes concerning the use of protective helmets.
