EN ISO 11612:2008

This standard is describing minimum performance requirements for clothing PPE worn by industrial workers exposed to heat. This means short contact with flame and with at least one type of heat (convective, radiant, large molten metal splashes or a combination of these).

Within many of the hazards listed in this International Standard there are three performance levels:

  • Level 1 to indicate exposure to perceived low risk
  • Level 2 to indicate exposure to perceived medium risk
  • Level 3 to indicate exposure to perceived high risk

Retroreflective materials, labels or badges which are applied to the outermost surface of the

garment shall be tested in combination with the outer layer by applying the flame to the outer surface of the items. They shall have the same flammability behaviour as the outer layer of the garment.
