A Certified Industrial Hygienist Looks at Personal Protectiv
A Certified Industrial Hygienist Looks at Personal Protective Equipment for Emergency Response to Ammonia (1997)-This paper considers choice of personal protective equipment (PPE) for emergency response to ammonia releases at private facilities by employees. It is assumed that the employees are acting in an extraordinary capacity, outside of their normal range of duties. This paper presents the view that PPE must be carefully selected with due consideration given to several issues: (1) whether the tactical objectives are offensive or defensive; (2) whether the objectives are realistic considering the capabilities and training levels of responders wearing PPE; (3) whether the PPE will protect against all of the potential hazards posed by the tactical objective; and (4) whether the hazards inherent in the PPE itself are minimized.
