EN14126 standard of protective clothing against infective agents

  • Author:Helen
  • Release on :2016-06-30

This British Standard was published under the authority of the Standards Policy and Strategy Committee on January 19th, 2004.

Protective clothing against infective agents has two main functions:

1.     To prevent infective agents from reaching the (possibly injured) skin;

2.     To prevent the spreading of the infective agents to other people and other situations, e.g. eating or drinking, when the person has taken his protective clothing off.

In many work situations, e.g. microbiological laboratories, biotechnological production, etc. the infective agents can be contained and the risk of exposure is limited to the occurrence of an accident. In these situations the agents are usually well known. In other types of work, the organisms cannot be contained, exposing the worker continuously to the risk of infection by biological agents. This happens e.g. in sewage work, waste treatment, caring for animals infected with zoonotic agents, emergency clean-up, treatment of hospital risk waste etc. In these situations, the agents the workers are exposed to although possible risks can be assessed.

Protective clothing against infective agents shall fulfill the relevant requirements of EN 340 and the whole suit requirements specified in the relevant standard for chemical protective clothing.

The materials and design used shall not cause skin irritation nor have any adverse effect to health.

This suit should be as light and as flexible as possible in order to ensure the comfort of the wearer, not to hinder movements and still provide at the same time effective protection.
