EN ISO 11611: Protective clothing against welding and related processes.

ISO 11611:2015 specifies minimum basic safety requirements and test methods for protective clothing including hoods, aprons, sleeves, and gaiters that are designed to protect the wearer's body including head (hoods) and feet (gaiters) and that are to be worn during welding and allied processes with comparable risks This type of protective clothing protects against small splashes of molten metal, short term contact with a flame and radiant heat from the arc. These clothing also provide a degree of electrical insulation.

Class 1: protection against welding techniques and situations causing the least amount of spatter and low radiant heat.

Class 2: protection against welding techniques and situations causing more spatter and higher radiant heat

EN ISO 11612: Protection against heat and flames

ISO 11612 specifies performance requirements for protective clothing made from flexible materials, which are designed to protect the wearer's body, except the hands, from heat and/or flame.

For protection of the wearer's head and feet, the only items of protective clothing falling within the scope of ISO 11612 are gaiters, hoods, and over-boots. However, concerning hoods, requirements for visors and respiratory equipment are not given.

The performance requirements set out in ISO 11612 are applicable to protective clothing which could be worn for a wide range of end users, where there is a need for clothing with limited flame spread properties and where the user can be exposed to radiant or convective or contact heat or to molten metal splashes.

EN 13034: Protective clothing against liquid chemicals

The EN 13034 standard specifies the requirements for chemical protective clothing offering limited protection against liquid chemicals, protection against a potential explosion of small amounts of spray or a small volume (accidentally sprayed) of chemicals, from which a total permeability barrier is not required.

EN ISO 13688: Protective clothing - General requirements

ISO 13688 specifies general performance requirements for ergonomics, innocuousness, size designation, ageing, compatibility and marking of protective clothing and the information to be supplied by the manufacturer with the protective clothing.

ISO 13688 is only intended to be used in combination with other standards containing requirements for specific protective performance and not on a stand-alone basis.

EN 14058: Protection against cold environments

The EN 14058 standard specifies the performance requirements and test methods for garments that provide protection against local body cooling in cool environments. A garment meeting the requirements of the standard is intended for use in an environment characterised by the combination of humidity and wind (wind cooling effect) at air temperatures above -5°C.

EN ISO 20471: High visibility clothing standard

ISO 20471 specifies requirements for high visibility clothing which is capable of visually signalling the user's presence. The high visibility clothing is intended to provide conspicuity of the wearer in any light condition when viewed by operators of vehicles or other mechanized equipment during daylight conditions and under illumination of headlights in the dark.

Performance requirements are included for colour and retro-reflection as well as for the minimum areas and for the placement of the materials in protective clothing.

EN 510: Protection against the risk of entanglement with moving parts

Protective clothing designed for workers operating on or near machines with exposed moving parts (dial shaft, transmission elements, rotating machine).

EN 61482-2: Protective clothing against the thermal hazard of an Electric Arc

This standard specifies PPE Clothing when there is a risk of an Electric Arc - for instance when working with electricity on open equipment or maintenance / switching work. Electric Arc garments come under PPE Regulation Category III. Fabric properties and garment design are important parameters in the certification process of Electric Arc garments.

2 classes:

Class 1: Effective protection performance against an 4KA electric arc

Class 2: Effective protection performance against an 7KA electric arc

EN 14404: Protection for Work in Kneeling Position

An item that meets this standard has been designed and manufactured in order to ensure knee protection for all professional activities that require working on the knees. The knee pads are submitted to testing that indicate the penetration resistance, force distribution and impact force.

EN 343: Protection against bad weather

This standard specifies materials and seams requirements for protective clothing against rain, snow, fog and soil moisture.

EN 1149-5: Electrostatic properties

The EN ISO 1149 standard specifies a test method for materials to be used in the production of protective clothing (or gloves) with electrostatic dissipation for preventing incendiary discharge.

ISO 27065 - Protection against pesticides

Protective clothing worn by workers applying liquid pesticides or exposed to spread pesticides. This standard specifies performance requirements classification and labeling requirements for protective clothing worn by operators applying aqueous pesticides.
