Presentation Transcript

  1. Chemical Protective Clothing Performance Requirements for Chemical Protective Clothing (CPC) • Chemical Resistance: • Design • Durability • Size • Flexibility • Color • Temperature Resistance • Cost • Service Life • Cleanability

  2. Levels of Chemical Protection In Hazardous Material operations there are four levels of protection. • Level A • Level B • Level C • Level D

  3. Level A Fully encapsulating suit with self-contained breathing apparatus

  4. Level B Self-contained breathing apparatus, Chemical protective clothing, gloves, and hard hat

  5. Level C Air-purifying respirator, chemical protective clothing, gloves, boots, and hard hat

  6. Level D Chemical-protective clothing, boots, gloves, and hard hat

  7. Level A • Level A should be worn when the highest level of respiratory, skin, and eye protection is required. • Level A is used when: • Conditions are unknown • The hazardous substance has been identified and requires the highest level of protection for skin, eyes, and respiratory system • Operations are being conducted in confined, poorly ventilated areas • Work function involves a high potential for splash, immersion, or exposure to unexpected skin hazards

  8. LEVEL B • Should be selected when the highest level of respiratory protected is needed and some degree of skin protection is required. Level B is the minimum recommendation for initial site entry. • Level B protection is used when: • Air contaminants are unknown • Air contaminants have been identified and the criteria for using APRs are not met • IDLH air concentrations exist • The atmosphere contains less than 19.5% oxygen • Direct contact does not pose a severe skin hazard

  9. LEVEL C • Level C should be selected when types of airborne contaminants are known, the concentrations are measured and the criteria for using air-purifying respirators (APRs) are met. • Level C protection is used when: • Criteria for the use of APRs are met • Air contaminants have been identified and concentrations measured • Direct contact does not pose a skin hazard

  10. LEVEL D • Level D should not be worn on any site with respiratory or skin hazards. Level D is primarily a work uniform providing minimal protection. • Level D protection is worn when: • Atmosphere contains no known hazards • Work functions precludes the potential for unexpected exposure to hazardous levels of any substances
