Chemical Protection (C)

Clothing that provides both total and partial protection of the body in environments (workplaces or elsewhere) where a risk assessment has revealed the presence of and possibility of skin coming into contact with hazardous chemical agents in the numerous different forms in which they may appear (gaseous, liquid or solid state).
According to the degree of hazardousness of the chemical agent taken into consideration, also in combination with possible workplace scenarios, clothing is divided into 6 Types embracing the most complex garments (ventilated and non-ventilated fully encapsulated suits and coveralls) as well as less complex types and partial body protection (provided for only in types 3, 4 and 6).
Current technical standards combine specifications for protection against hazardous chemical agents, according to the various classifications, with those set forth for protection against biological hazards.
